Susan, I had an extremely difficult time dealing with the fact that I most likely would not get pregnant. This i found out at age 25 Got the hysterectomy at 35. But was able to adopt 2 children 2 years apart. That was in the early 70’s. I am now in my early 70’s and remember it like it was yesterday.
Give yourself time to adjust to yourself and your new you because every day is a gift. Be goofy to yourself and you are right about drinking a lot of water for so many reasons.
You still have a chance that you might get pregnant ? I got pregnant twice for 2 months each, and the Doctor said I would never be able to carry a baby I had a problem with my uterus, it was divided in half. Lucky me, if there was something weird to be it would happen to me. I was so miserable I don’t know how my husband put up with it.
Today when I see a pregnant woman I still get a little sad, but I learned that things happen for a reason. I have 2 great kids on their 40’s now and 3 grandchildren.
What are your plans for the future? Do you work, travel, read, volunteer, work out? Or are you not there yet?
Keep busy. Have something to look forward to each day. Even if it is a cup of tea or a soap opera.
I am happy that you seem to be adjusting to your new position in life because you are worth it.
Please tell me more about your self. Even if I am old enough to be your mother, my grandkids think I am so much fun and silly and I don’t care what anyone else thinks as long as I am happy.
The best to you.
