Re: [IP] Other people's reactions to pumping



Just last night we had my husbands brother and his wife over for dinner.  So
before dinner i did a site change, and his sister-in-law commented about how
bad she feels for me because i have to do that.  I was going to try to
explain it to her but realized that it wouldn't have changed her mind.  But
what bothers me is that people feel pity for me and i don't understand why,
I don't have pity on myself so i don't want it from any other person.
