I think I’d go mad!!!
OK – I am uber-maternal, my ‘mothering instinct’ engaged to more than two standard deviations from the mean…
In other words, if you will let me, I will ‘mother’ you!!!
I gave up everything – from my business to some incredibly lucrative opportunities – to stay at home and be my kids’ mom. Just because they wanted me to: even knowing it will deprive them of video-games and expensive holidays, y kids said they’d rather have me income-less and home, available for them. And, to me, this is the highest compliment my kids could ever pay me and the greatest indulgence my husband could ever grant me!
So, I cannot possibly imagine how this woman felt: she had a panic attack (and, during my pregnancy with my first son, I suffered panic attacks during the last trimester, so I can relate…but they were just panic attacks caused by hormonal surges and nothing deeper than that!!!), somebody called emergency ‘to help her’ – and she got taken into a ‘psychiatric hospital’, involuntarily committed, sedated and, without her permission or even knowledge, her baby was removed via a C-section and even though she is fine now, the baby is up for adoption!!!
