my story is quite similar to yours. basically to a T. i was also alert through mine...the most horrible experience of my life, and the most painful. when it was over, i almost passed out and threw up. i would NEVER consider this option again, i guess before you go in to have it done, you kind of block your emotions, dont let yourself feel sad, or sorry, because you know that this is something you HAVE to do. for me, i did it because i couldnt handle another child, being a single mom to two children, my daughter was only 1 1/2, and i was struggling with problems of my own, but if i could have seen what i went through, through someone elses eyes, i wouldnt have thought twice about not having it done, i'd never do it. i think about it ALL the time, they don't "inform" you of the things you go through when its over, the feelings and emotions, oh, but they hand you a card with a number on it "just in case"...bullsmurf! i honestly think you should have to go through some type of couseling to even be able to do the procedure.. anyways, thank you for sharing.. something like this could really help people when it comes to making these decisions.
