If you’ve ridden the infertility roller coaster, you know that infertility can make you feel depressed, upset and completely alone. Your chest may ache, your heart may break and you feel like giving up on a daily basis. Everyone else seems to be getting pregnant and you feel like this may never happen for you….
You’re right. You should feel depressed about your life, and you definitely should cry every single day in public places. You should cry until your eyes are swollen and you have to wear one of those pirate patches to cover up the puffiness. You should cry until your nose is bright red and people think you are wearing a clown nose. You’re right. This is completely your fault. You asked to have a twisted uterus, a messed-up cycle and follicles that can’t seem to implant. At your third birthday party, you closed your eyes, blew out your birthday candles and secretly wished for infertility later in life. You’re right. You are fat and ugly. It was your choice to wear that outfit with non-matching socks. If only you could lose 10 pounds than your life would be absolutely perfect and flawless. You’re right. You do smell. How can a baby grow inside your uterus with that stench. Maybe that’s why those sperms are so repelled.
You’re right. One day your babies are going to think that you are the most beautiful, strong and caring woman and they will only see you cry during happy occasions.
