I need to remember that I'm not at the forefront of everyone's mind. Not that I ever think I am, but it would help if those close to me would remember a few facts. A relative and I were messaging:
Her: So when are you going to settle down and give our family kids with your eyes and hair?
Me: (dumbfounded) You're kidding, right?
Her: No, why? You don't want kids? I know you love them.
Me: Yeah, but remember last year? Cancer took my ability to have and carry my own children.
Her: ...Oh right.
Really? Maybe I'm just being too sensitive for once, but she and I have talked about this before.
