My mother took a drug during her pregnancy that caused a congenital defect. This "defect" was a body formed with no left breast. No breast, no nipple, nor certain surrounding muscle. Pretty much looking as someone after a radical mastectomy. Needless to say I have climbed the top of "Everest" with this and am now at the top and feeling wonderful about myself. If you can imagine adolescence, "breaking the news" so to speak before making love for the first time, or just having to take a shower in the company of other girls was quite the dilemma. - Thank heaven for maturity!I have gone through "reconstructive" surgery beginning at age 16, to appear "normal". It is truly amazing the clout put onto breasts in our culture...so thanks for your march!
