MRKH meeting

I've never been one to make MRKH a major focus of my life, but no matter how hard I try to imagine  that it's not a big deal, it is. I'm different. I've been different my whole life. I have felt like a freak, embarrassed,  ashamed, confused, I have questioned "why me", and I have felt alone. Even knowing that there are other woman out there like me, it didn't seem to matter.

Today that changed. For the first time I met 2 beautiful ladies that also have MRKH, and for the first time in my life, I felt like someone understands me.

We chatted about everything; family, sex, marriage, relationships, food, wine, jobs... What I appreciated most about our get together is that we are all in different places in our lives.  One is single and trying out the dating thing, one had been married for 20 years, and me...married for four years trying to figure the kid thing out.

I don't think you can truly understand how important it is to meet someone like you unless you are a little different. I'll be the first to admit I didn't see the importance in it, until today. It's a strange feeling...feeling like no one understands what you go through, and then all the sudden two people do.

Today was a day I will never forget. It made me feel normalish...it made me feel not alone...and it was awesome.

Enough sappy stuff! This post sucks! I don't think I laughed once writing it.

  2. It is nice to hear a story like that. I too have MRKH. I was born without a uterus and a vagina. It's hard to not feel like your alone, especially when there are a lot things that make you different. I personally have MRKH, TAR syndrome, and a few other things, but lets not get into that. I'm glad that you were able to feel not alone by meeting others.
