Infertility

Infertility....


...is depressing

...is devastating

...is exhausting

...is not fair

...is expensive

...is painful

...is disruptive

...is discriminatory

...is lonely

...is isolating

...is time consuming

...is hard on relationships

...is hard on your body

...is hard on your soul

...is draining

...is unmotivating

...is sad

...hurts

...leaves scars

...is emotional

...makes you angry

...makes you doubt yourself

...makes you want to crawl in a hole

...makes you jealous

...makes you judgemental

...makes you feel like a failure



Oh, and did I mention - Infertility SUCKS!

Feel free to join my pity party and add to the list.

I hear you and feel you and I hate to hear you are going through these emotions again. Just be very kind to yourself and get some of that terrific confidence back so your next batch will result in those twins you want. I don't think you are stupid at all for being confident and making plans...I am convinced my own faith/confidence that I would be pregnant led to my twin girls. Lots of folks are thinking of you and looking for the positive results to come...Michele in Atl.
