Impact on My Life
I was absolutely devastated when I found out. But over the past 3 years, I have become adjusted to it. The hardest part is when I'm shopping at a local store and somebody sees me down the isle, I'm not sure who they are till they come closer, so I just smile and say Hi to everyone now.
It has made me realize to stop taking so many things for granted and enjoy life more.
I am a stay at home mother of 2 daughters, 15 and 6.
