Sorry for my absence last Thursday. The entire household caught Norovirus and then a cold on top of it. It was not pretty. But, we are finally on the mend and hopefully we’ll sidestep any other major illnesses this season. While we were laying around recovering I took some time to go through the list of blogs and resources to update it. I realized pretty quickly that damn near everyone on that list has gone on to become parents and a lot of them aren’t updating their blogs much, if at all, anymore. I was struck with the duality of this community. We all band together in some of the worst circumstances but often it is a fleeting comradery. So often it is but a few year stint that we do in the land of IF. Which made me realize just how fucking strong those of you are who have been here a lot longer. To all my still infertile friends who battle it out in the trenches for years or even decades, watching those you love fall to the wayside and move on, I want to offer you support. I know, I am also one of those people who wound up with a baby and so I need to mostly STFU, but I wanted you to know that I see you. Struggling forward, again, still… I applaud you. I am sorry your journey wasn’t shorter.
Ps: Also, please, dear god, help me find more blogs to add to this list so it stays current for people looking for active in the trenches support! Add those blogs I should check out in the comments! Thanks!
