My 30's have been rough

I had a daughter who died. Then I had my son, and then I had cancer. Then my husband started a business of his own which failed. He took a job here in Michigan and four days later we found out I had leukemia and needed a bone marrow transplant. We had no health insurance. So it has been an extremely interesting adventure. I'm 34 and I joke with people that hey, my 30's have been really rough but my 40's can't be beat.
