I'm finding that it's hard to acknowledge that my body just can't do the things it once could. My mind can't either, I suppose. I always feel surprised and betrayed. My therapist and I commiserate with each other, since he's a few years older than I am and is experiencing the same thing.

Maybe it's something that needs to be mourned like any other loss. Yet people are more likely to tell you that age doesn't matter, and there's nothing to mourn. Maybe something in the middle is more likely true.

I'm sorry you haven't been able to find a therapist who is able to help you let go of the pain of loss and evaluate what the best possible future might be.

I'm sure this goes without saying, but I imagine if you look back over the families you met while you were nursing, that you'll remember that there are a lot of different ways of contributing to a family.
