Cancer SUCKS.

by mssinglemama on September 5, 2008

 

Is your body image in check?

This one is coming from a fantastic new reader, we’ll call her Moon Beam… she’s a new single mom and is just now getting back into the dating game. In fact, she went on her first date last night! But she’s concerned about how her new flame will react when he sees her new, post-baby body.  

Here’s the latest Single Mom S.O.S.:

I have a good body, but it’s still different than someone who’s never had kids, (if you know what I mean). Do guys know some of these differences or are they shocked?

I love hearing from new single moms because it takes me back to my first year of being a single mom. I was petrified of being with a man again. But I finally took the plunge and you know what? He didn’t care. Not one of them has… or at least they haven’t said anything, but who would? Were they all just being nice?

It is true, after having a child our bodies just aren’t the same. So… what do you think?

To the single mamas, how is your body image? Is it affecting your ability to get back out there? If you are out there are the men “shocked” when they see you?

And to the men, does it matter? If you’ve ever been with a single mom did you freak out at what you saw?

I want to hear from everyone on this one. Keep the comments clean please. My opinion: Men don’t care. They really don’t. But if you care, they will. (As always, I could be wrong). With that said, to the mamas – how can Moon Beam work on improving her self-image?

Jim Everson, known to many of you as Depot Dad, just found out that he has a severe form of skin cancer. We’re still waiting to find out just how severe… but it’s looking, well, very scary.

I haven’t even called him yet because I know I would just burst into tears. I hate cancer. As you know, I lost my own father to cancer when he was just 51. HATE IT. Damn it. Cancer is one of the cruelest things on this planet. But Jim is young, healthy and he has two beautiful children to fight tooth and nail for…

Please go wish him the best. The support you give him, from his fellow single parents, will undoubtedly mean the world to him.

I know. My dad died last year at age 59. Ugh!

I cried so much when Jim used the “c” word on his blog. We’re keeping him in our prayers!!

I am praying for him and yes I too have already cried for him. He is one of my new found heroes here in the blogosphere. Thanks for giving your readers a chance to reach out to him as well.
