    Substitute vet for doctor and I reckon it's a fairly good comparison.

    Moving away from home to the other side of the country where you know no one. I did it at 18 and then saw my mum do it at 50 something and it was harder for her than it had been for me.

    For things I've experienced that I think you need to experience to understand:

    Addiction
    Infertility
    Social anxiety / agoraphobia

    As things I don't imagine I can truly understand without experiencing them:
    Almost anything to do with raising children! I can empathise with people on what I think it's like to experience the sleep depravation, insecurity that you might be doing it 'wrong', the different challenges each age brings, having a child with developmental problems etc, I don't think I can really KNOW what it's like until I experience it myself.

    I agree with Pp who said migraines.

    I didnt go though gender dissappointment, but I feel as though I understand someone who has, because I knew before kids that I would have really struggled if I didnt get to have a girl. I would have been devastated. So even though I never experienced it, I feel as though I can try to put myself in the shoes of someone who can.

    I think I am a pretty empathetic person, but I feel like some things are easier to understand than others. @siansmum, I have two asthmatic children who have had some serious attacks, & I read your story on here & think of you often. I could never understand or imagine what it was like to lose your beautiful little girl xx 💗

    Having twins.

    I've had a few people tell me that having 2 under 2 or whatever is like having twins... No, it's not! I'm not saying that that situation doesn't have its own unique challenges that I don't understand, or that it's not bloody difficult, but it's not the same as being pregnant with two, giving birth to two, caring for two newborns and starting your life as a parent as a mum of two.
