I never thought I'd say this (and I really never thought I'd write it), but I heart blogging. If you'd asked me a year ago my opinion on blogging, I'd of said "I don't really get it." You know, the whole putting your life online for the world to see, your innermost thoughts now public, and the narcissism of thinking that anyone would actually read it... not something I really understood.
And then, after almost a year of BFNs, and after my first failed IUI, I got online looking for women who were going through the same thing that I was. And as soon as I saw that there were blogs out there, and that the women were struggling with their anger, their disappointment, their frustration, that they ranted and they raved about the unfairness of it all, and they philosophized about the meaning of it all, and they commiserated with one another, and they sent out "hugs" and "good lucks" and "I'm so sorrys" through their comments, and suddenly I knew that I needed to be a part of that world.
And so, I have officially replaced my infertility obsession with an infertility blog obsession!
No longer do I think "my RE is an incompetent fool and that sucks," now I think "I am SO going to blog about what an incompetent fool my RE is and how much that sucks!"
I feel much better!
