I'm sure you all have heard it before. One reason to have a kid is so you can relive the magic of being a child!
My man and I just got back from Harry Potter World and let me tell you, we were the biggest kids there! We bought interactive wands and cast spells all over the damn place. We drank as much butterbeer as we could handle. All the candy in Honeydukes? Yes, absolutely. Ride all the rides 5 times? Duh! We went ALL out. Spared no expense. Why? Because we could. It was the most magical three days of my 27 years on Earth.
So no, I don't need a child to relive my best days. Because some of my best days happened last week with the love of my life.
What are some of your best adult magical moments society says you couldn't have without a kid?

So I'm still buzzing after this encounter.
I work in a small retail shop in my city. This older couple comes in and I'm helping them pick out some stuff. The husband gets a call (I'm assuming from one of their kids) and the wife looks at me and asks, "Do you have kids?" I immediately shook my head and said, "Oh gosh no. No no no. My boyfriend and I are not about that life." Instantly I have regrets because I'm not ready to get my first bingo at work. She looks me dead in the eyes and says, "Good for you. They will take everything from you." When her husband hangs up she calls him over and says, "Honey this woman isn't having kids, she deserves a congratulations." I was blown away! As they walked out the door she says, "Congratulate your boyfriend too! I wish you a lot of happiness!"
What the hell! I'm floored. In a good way, of course.
Yesterday there was a post asking what cancer survivor's symptoms were. I don't know why I looked at it late last night while laying in bed. But I fell down the rabbit hole of x,y,z being symptoms of cancer. It consumed me and I couldn't stop thinking about it. Since I was a child I've been terrified of cancer, aids, heart failure etc. You name it, I'm convinced I have it.
I recently started seeing a new doctor who wanted me to get blood work done, standard physical stuff. I've been avoiding it for weeks because I'm terrified of needles and of finding out something is seriously wrong.
I woke up at 6am panicking again. Usually when I go to bed anxious, I wake up and those thoughts are long gone. Not this morning though. So I got up, drove myself to the doctor and had my blood drawn. I'm glad I finally got it over with. It's a weight off my shoulders. I'm trying really hard not to think about the results now.
Anyways, I really needed to vent and I don't see my therapist until Friday so here I am. I don't have anyone who understands health anxiety and I feel alone and crazy with my fears.
