"We can’t talk about it, because it’s women who write other women off. It’s the female friends and the sisters-in-law that say, 'it doesn’t matter.' And then the more you talk about it, you realize it DOES matter to them. They've never had a place to talk about it or tell their stories. You can see the pain and the terror in their eyes when they do talk about it, even years later. You can see it on their faces. You’re supposed to enjoy every moment of it - you’re not supposed to be traumatized by it. And don’t ask for help....because 'good' mothers don’t need help! So plaster a smile on your face..."
