Where to begin?! So much has happened in the last few months. So many doctor's appointments, so many emotions, so many tears... this is why I have decided to start a "series" of sorts. These blog posts will probably be uncomfortable for most people. Society is so hush hush about this subject. I suppose it's because no one really wants to talk about something so painful. It is an extremely sad topic and believe me, I remember thinking to myself in the past "Oh, I feel so sorry for that lady who can't have a baby. That would be so horrible. I can't imagine not being able to have children." I never knew what to say to those women. That's why I think we need to talk about it. I think it is important for people to try to understand and be informed about this topic so that they will know what to say and how they can help someone who is trying to cope with infertility.
The second reason for these posts will be purely therapuetic for me. I need to talk about it. I don't want to be secretive about what I'm going through and I don't want to have to put on a brave face 100% of the time. I don't want to try to hide the fact that I'm hurting and I need all the prayer and support I can get. If you can handle it I would love for you to join me on my journey and be there to cheer me on! Moral support is so much more helpful than you can imagine.
I have already been so blessed to have some amazing women in my life that understand exactly what I am feeling. God has used them to help me stay strong throughout the past year. I am so thankful for them... you know who you are, ladies!
Don't worry, I won't overwhelm you with depressing "infertile myrtle" posts! Right now I plan to talk about it once a week. I still want this to be a happy, crafty blog so don't worry about it being all gloomy from here on out! Infertility is just something I am going through... it's not going to define my life or steal my joy. I would love to hear what you think about this new series of posts. If you have any questions or topics you would like to see please let me know! Tata for now!
