Giving Thanks During My Infertility Struggle
This is a hard post for me to write, but an important one. Throughout all this, I have to remind myself of what I have. How far I have come. How thankful I am for everything I do have.
So what am I thankful for?
First, I am thankful for my amazing husband. He’s supportive, funny and kind. He makes me a better person and I would be lost without his love and support.
I’m thankful for my friends. Without them, I wouldn’t have the outside support I need while dealing with everything. They act as a support and an escape, whatever I need and they are invaluable.
I’m thankful for WordPress. WP has helped me make the amazing friends I have. A community I feel welcomed in. The ability to have a career without a college education. Without WP I’d still be a slave in the retail customer service cog, and I’m forever grateful to be out of that.
I am also thankful for RESOLVE. Having the ability to find a support group to help manage the emotional aspect of this disease, and get involved in affecting real change has been an invaluable asset for me. It’s given me some level of control in a situation I have no control over.
This Thanksgiving season, what are you thankful for?
