when struggling with infertility, life can come to a standstill…
…but it doesn’t have to. Easier said than done, right? If you are like me, then every Mother’s Day, Birthday Day, and holiday (including back to school days) are painful reminders of what our lives are missing. The doctors appointments, the testing, the waiting, the exhausting of Plan As and Plan Bs… it can feel like a marathon with a goal in mind but no end in sight.
So how to I get through it? By focusing on LIVING. I got my partner, my family, my girl tribe, and that one friend that knows exactly how I feel. I focus on the good, how I am so blessed in other ways, and how I am strong and beautiful. I take on new challenges- professionally, at home, and physically. And have my outlets- through my art, self care, travel, and physical activities. Although I have a rich life and an amazing support system, at times I still feel overwhelmingly isolated and stuck. And I know I am not alone.
Infertility doesn’t have to be a private struggle. Come follow along my journey to motherhood and help me create a community that provides encouragement, support, and empathy. You can share your story, or silently participate and know that we are here for you when you are ready.
