sorry if this is depressing...

I've been a bit depressed for a couple weeks. I don't know why other than getting fired or the alcohol. Lol... But I've stopped drinking for now and was dealing a little better until today when a friend told a couple of us about her speech she was doing in school. It is about circumcision. And she explained why modern circumcision is horrible and not even biblically accurate. So I've been dwelling on essentially what was stollen from me at birth and that I'm missing out on. And not having ever had a meaningfully relationship with anyone doesn't help, much less the fact I've really never been in an actual relationship. Yeah... This is depressing. I can't talk about it to anyone so this helps here. I have to find something to do with my life... I'm just lost right now. Thanks to anyone who reads this... Or doesn't. :) all I know is I'd I ever have kids or adopt I'm not going to do that to them.

Circumcision is a touchy subject, I know some people are really upset about it and rightfully so. It sounds like this is important to you so I may suggest you look into foreskin restoration. If you do a Google search and you should find all the information you need to make the inexpensive device & advice to begin the process, it takes several months but it's proven to work and then it won't be something you'll have to continue being upset about. But regardless if you remedy your issue you should really let your past go, there's nothing anyone can do to change their past and regretting does nothing positive for us (as I'm sure you know). You've been dealt a hand of cards, all you can do is play them to the best of your ability. [hugs] If you'd like to speak further please send me a PM and we can start conversing more regularly about things. Take care of yourself and, even though I know it's difficult, try to stay positive. =)

Thank you. I really appreciate it. I know dwelling on the past and such doesn't help at all. I'm just going to be outspoken on the issue every time that someone brings up having a new child or the specific topic comes up. *hugs back*

I always thought it was hypocritical for people to be outraged at female genital mutilation (aka female circumcision) but not care about male genital mutilation (aka male circumcision). I guess it's just so ingrained in our society it's hardly thought of as abnormal or bad even though it does some terrible things and is done for horrible reasons. Hitchens was also very much against genital mutilation and makes some really good points about it here. I'm not against circumcision itself, anyone can choose to do whatever they wish with their bodies, but babies are not given that choice and therefore is forced on them.

In any case, things will get better in time, just need to keep fighting the good fight. =)

Thanks for the link! I'm helping a classmate with her speech and we're actually thinking about writing an article in the college paper about this issue. Thank you so much for your help and encouragement. X3
