Not-So-Funny story from work the other day... There were two women in our store with their kids, and those kids were behaving extremely poorly. We started talking about having kids and everything, and the girls apparently assumed that I have kids, because they started asking about mine. I informed them that I don't have any, which started a chorus of "Good!" "Too much trouble at your age!" "Enjoy the time while you can!" and the worst comment (in my opinion) was the following, "Good. Might as well get spayed and neutered now and save yourself the trouble."
I didn't bother starting the conversation about the fact that, technically speaking, I was born "spayed." The way the girls were going off and chattering on, it would not have been worth the questions and taunting they would have done. It has been bad enough getting the strange looks and comments for being engaged at 19, let alone voicing my physical problems aloud. They don't believe I have spine problems (scoliosis), so it wasn't worth having a detailed conversation about how I have periods and have sex with MRKH.
It was one of those situations where I felt really alone and depressed with my syndrome. Anyone else out there feeling the same way?
