Another one that I can't honestly relate to. I've had food allergies my whole life. I know all about living without and not being miserable. Don't get me wrong, there are times I smell chocolate and want to weep in a corner, but I can live without it.
I could say that I can't live without Ruby, but since I haven't tried, and don't plan on it well, it doesn't fit this question does it. Life before Ruby was not a miserable existence. I had moments (days, weeks, years) of abject misery, wondering if I would ever experience motherhood but it was a pretty decent life. If she were to disappear from my life NOW, well... quite frankly I can't even fathom that, much less type it. But I would keep living. My heart would be broken, but i would keep living.
