I want to send a great big thank you out to Kellie and Becky and K for talking me down off the ledge last night at our WAITT dinner. By the time I got home, I was able to look at Manly without feeling like I wanted to rip his head off his shoulders. We still haven’t talked any more about the IUI or the car, but I am trying to get my thoughts in a coherent framework to discuss the situation with him this weekend. (I did NOT, however, share my cookie.)
Last night just drove home for me the importance of having a support system when you’re dealing with infertility. I had a table full of women who knew exactly what I was going through and who were able to discuss the situation between me and Manly without telling me to relax or trying to change the subject. When I explained that my husband doesn’t want to believe that this is happening to us, they understood. That is something I just do not have in any of my other friendships, and I treasure it.
So for any of you out there who might be looking for a infertility support group in north Alabama, come see us!
