The deeper I get into this IF world, the more I realize that people around me (who know what I’m going through) just don’t know how to respond to my feelings and frustrations. It’s National Infertility Awareness Week next week (April 24-May 1) and Resolve has a great Q&A section about the myths and realities of what infertiles go through and how to respond/help if it’s your friends or family members struggling with it. Please check it out!
In the meantime, please think twice before you throw out that question of “so when are you guys going to have kids?” Honestly, either:
1) They don’t want them yet and this question is annoying and overasked.
2) They are trying to have a child and it isn’t working.
Either way, in my opinion this is an incredibly personal question that somehow has become mainstream to ask. There’s your food for thought today…
