I'm wiping away tears reading the hard times many of you have faced. I can't even comprehend the loss of a loved one. My heart aches for your sadness. It really puts things into perspective. I almost feel that stating the year that most dramatically changed my life seems so insignificant in comparison, but it was the toughest year of my life and I feel that I should be thankful that so far this is the worst I've faced...
2010 (28 yrs old) - I was 5 months pregnant with my second DS when I discovered that my husband who I'd been with for 10 years was having an affair with my best friend. Apart from the obvious change (becoming a single mum) this event changed me as a person forever. It also changed my feelings towards others and it seems silly to say - but my innocence as a person who'd lived a simple life where you just thought people did the right thing was gone. My eyes were opened and I could see the world outside of my safe little bubble. It seemed at the time like it was the worst thing - but in hindsight it's made me a much stronger person. I've grown more as a person in the last two years than I had in all of the 28 leading up to it.

1999. Sick of my life, family, job, friends, my idiot boyfriend and constant bad luck health-wise, plus getting knocked down by a car. So I jacked it in, quit my job, bought a one way ticket & moved to Australia. Best thing I ever did.
2002 met dh. Best thing that ever happened to me.

2009. I separated from XH and found out I was pregnant with #3 four days later. We briefly got back together only for him to send me an email, while we were under the same roof, ending our marriage. My boys and I moved into a unit and watched my belly grow. XH was in and out of the picture, one minute wanting us back then the next being a single man. DD was borin in September and by the time she was 5 weeks old, XH and I had had a fight and that was it. Then all the cheating stories started coming out and he gave up on seeing the kids and I became a strong, independent woman.
It was a crappy year but wow, I grew so much as a person and DD was, and still is, an absolute blessing.

I had to quote you, PippaG, as I thought I'd read it wrong when you said that your mum died just 1 and a half weeks ater being diagnosed. I can't even begin to imagine the shock and disbelief you must have felt over such a tragic event

So many hugs to many of you ladies. The things each of you have been through, wow.
Mine is 2005 - finding out I was pregnant with ds1, getting my s*** together, losing majority of my 'friends' because I kept ds1, strengthening my bond with my dad
