CW: infertility Hello Blooms, It's a f*cking weird time to be alive huh? THE END No I'm only pulling your leg - however this pretty much sums up the alternate reality we seem to be existing in; almost like we're floating in space, waiting to wake up from this bloody nightmare. I'm having a bit [...]
