Oh, I feel for you. I'm so sorry that you had to make this painful decision. The older I get the more I realize in what brief increments time is measured out, and how impossible it is to do everything I want to do. . . But things have their season and you may well be able to return to krav or another martial art in the future. At this point, that future might seem really far away, but from the future's point of view, this wasn't very long ago at all. :-) I was very devoted to my tae kwon do class for a year and a half - I know, not that long, but long enough and I was still full of enthusiasm for it and it was still a new part of my identity. Then I got pregnant and the world turned upside down and I gave that up along with cycling and anything else that carried the slightest amount of risk. I got back into karate when Anthony was 6 and we started going to the class together. I thought I was giving it up forever, but in fact here I am again. I don't know if that's any comfort. I concur that you should keep "fighter" in your tag because it has a much broader meaning than simply "a person who takes a martial arts class."

That's sad. But I'm very glad you're keeping 'fighter' because you're a fighter anyway! xx
