I am thankful to have been born when I was. Not only because had I been born in another era I wouldn’t have met CSP & all my friends etc, but because of modern day luxuries. God bless those people who lived in pioneer days and even before. I wouldn’t have done well with no deodorant, hair product, mascara, lip gloss, moisturizer, you get the picture. Not to mention medical advancements. I surely would have died in my early thirties had I been born 100 years ago! When my fallopian tube twisted and became engorged it got the doctors excited at the hospital- and that was in the mid 2000s! They surely wouldn’t have known what to do with me in the 1800s! And that was just the start of my surgical adventures!
