According to her: “I was told I couldn’t have kids. And so , I had to remove my womb to make me have a life again and to stop going through what I was going through.

And I’m literarily telling women and men , it really doesn’t matter if you can’t bear children. What really matters is what you would do for the world ,

for the universe.

When I was first told by the doctor that I would have to remove my womb to live a normal life , tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand.

It was reassuring that there was someone there and it was telling me that this is reality , my reality. The ordeal made me fall into depression.

I didn’t think there was any point anymore because my society taught me that I have to be a mother to be appreciated and every time I went online , I would have one troll or two say ‘you never born? But I’m thankful that that didn’t break me.”
