A year ago last May I started this blog. I had been quietly skulking around several people's infertility blogs and felt like I really wanted to comment and chime in. I was so relieved to hear that other women were feeling exactly what I was feeling and that I truly wasn't the only person in the world feeling like shit. I was nervous about actually starting my blog since I am not a writer (not even a little bit!) and since college days haven't so much as kept a diary or journal. (I can't even begin to describe how embarrassing those college diaries are! It's mortifying to go through and read them...I need to burn them so when I die I am not haunted from the grave that somebody will pick them up and look through them.)
There was a blogger who I messaged because we had sooooo many similarities it was almost like we were the same person. I am sure I came off like a total psycho stalker in my desperation to connect with someone who I thought would empathize with my situation. However that person was so kind and welcoming. She messaged me back almost immediately and continued the conversation over several days. It was like she instantly became my infertility sponsor. She encouraged me to start this blog and honestly if it wasn't for her support I probably wouldn't have. That person is Teresa from Where the *bleep* is our stork? So thank you Teresa for your encouragement and your friendship this last year. Even though it's only been a year you have been there for me through many ups and downs. You introduced me to a whole community of women who have literally saved my sanity in the last 12 plus months.
To all of you who continue to read and comment on my posts I thank you too and truly appreciate your friendship! I always look forward to reading your updates and I admire each of your strength and ability to adapt, cope, accept, grieve, doggedly pursue and persevere in your journey to find what it is you are looking for. I hope we all get our happy ever after...or at least our peace ever after.
