at the fertility clinic

desperate for money, i pondered donating my eggs. i went to an informational session today (no commitment and i don't know if i will end up doing it at all) at a fertility clinic. you get 8k if they end up taking your eggs, and they match you up with a donor--and it is very anonymous. all the women there were with either their mothers or husbands. the husbands went in with the wives, the mothers with the daughters. it was quite unusual, and i felt awkward with my ponytail and backpack (i had a huge stack of books to return to nypl!) and no one looked at me. i scrawled away on the questionaire in the waiting room, feeling nothing, writing down, not thinking.
