Yes, Pregnant.

I went to the dentist's last Tuesday.

And look back at the medical form completed in September 07, filled out with a cheerful "Yes, Pregnant!" next to the line asking about changes in my medical status.

With an exclamation point.

I'm tired of being a patient, tired of being broken and lost. Tired of the sheer cruelty the world inflicts on the parents of dead babies. Tired of being ignored and forgotten and left behind.

I wondered: what would they say if I said: "Yes, heart broken and soul torn in two".

Should I use a question mark with that?

I am so tired in body and spirit today.
