Saw my doctor again today. It went quite well. She's changed her mind and is now supportive of my decision to get sterilized. Wohoo. So we talked a bit about what the surgery is like, and I'm just as convinced as before that I want it.
The only reason I hesitate is because I hope that our new government will overturn the old's decision to have the patient pay a fortune for the procedure. My father did offer to pay for it, but I'd like to confirm that he was serious before I sign the document declaring I want to be fixed. I don't want to be a burden on my parents, but more than that, I want my tubes tied.
Sometimes you just have to face the fact that you can't make it on your own, and just accept the kindness you are offered.
