Hello. I'm Norman. Are you ready to chat?
Can you tell me why you decided to have your son circumcised please?
Great - can you answer my question?
about why you had your son circumcised
thanks for waiting
No problem at all. So, why did you have him circumcised?
the decision was an authomatic one which was cultural I guess.
cos it happened to me and I thought it was the right thing to do.. I was unaware of the effects it had on me till later on in life
Would it be fair to say that with the knowledge you fad at that time, you thought you were doing the right thing?
I see you anticipated me!
Just because you were adversely affected in later life does not suggest in the slightest that your son will be.
You say he seems fine, and that means he probably is fine?
yes he is a delight and I love him so much
You did what you truly believed was right at the time, no-one can blame you for that, nor should you blame yourself.
Also, I'm practically 100% sure that your son will remember NOTHING about the procedure, and justs accepts that that's how things are
Given that he is OK, who is going to benefit now from you sharing your past problem with him?
As I said I feel that I need to share my story.. and a part of me thinks that this way my children will know their father more.. also I might be of benefit for other people
not sure why NormanM has left the chat so quickly.. I feel that I didn't get all my questions answered
I feel disappointed
