Definition of Infertility Amnesia:

Function: infertile ailment, noun

1 : referring to an infertile woman who is consumed by her quest to get pregnant that she forgets how lucky and blessed she is in her daily life.
2 : a statement meaning to obsess about infertility and disregard everyday joys and happiness.
3 : the action of crying and feeling depressed about infertility and forgetting how to laugh and smile.
4 : referring to the dislike of all pregnant women and hating to hear another woman’s joyous pregnancy news.

The good news is there is a cure for this ailment! You have every right to feel how you feel about your situation BUT you can still remember to enjoy your daily life and think about all the other wonderful gifts you also have. It’s like you forget about your wonderful family, health, friends, home, and the ability that you have two legs, two arms and are strong and healthy enough to go to a fertility appointment. You may forget to feel grateful for just being alive.

On the bright side, hopefully you don’t have Infertility Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Infertility Hemorrhoids, and Infertility Intestinal Gas Syndrome.

    A wise friend of mine said that she allows herself one day of mourning a month where she gets to feel bad for herself and cry and be angry. The rest of the month, she says, she picks herself up and moves on with her blessed life.

    Great post Naomi!

    I remind my infertility clients (and myself) of the importance of being thankful every day. The more grateful you are for what you DO have, the higher your vibrational energy. That energy is what attracts more good into your life.

    Thank you for this! I really needed it. I thought I was going to start with a donor egg cycle yesterday, and when I called my doctor, I found out that I have to wait another month. It was so hard to hear that – I thought I was going to explode! But your post helps me bring perspective to this. Thanks again for helping me laugh!
