Infertility Depression

Not only did the infertility drugs make me crazy the whole situation made me so depressed.  There are so many emotions tied up in whether or not you can procreate.

Find your Tribe!

Going through the infertility journey is hard – very hard and surrounding yourself with the right kind of people is essential!  There may be times that you want to pull away and a true friend will understand this and give you the space you need. It is perfectly normal to feel sad when your BFF gets pregnant after her first try while you have been trying for so much longer.  A true loving and supportive friend will understand.
