I HAVE INFERTILITY, BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE ME!

It’s easy to get so wrapped up in infertility that you forget how to live. We need to consciously remind ourselves that there is so much more to life. Find those things that make you happy and don’t let infertility take that happiness away from you.

Fight! Fight for what you love. Fight for what makes you happy. Don’t let infertility steal the fight in you! Don’t give up. Keep pushing on. Realize the strength in yourself and know it’s okay and imperative to draw from the strength of others.

I’ve realized that no matter what happens infertility will be with us forever. We can’t run away from it. Sometimes it will be hiding in the shadows and sometimes it will be glaring us in the face. But it will always be there. We’re not ashamed of our negative feelings from infertility, because we know that’s part of the process. But we do want to avoid the bitterness and cynicism as a result of it. We know this whole journey has made us more compassionate and more understanding. It has changed us for the better and for that we are thankful.

I have infertility, but it doesn’t have me…
