This morning the weather had the decency to mirror my mood with grey skies and rain. I appreciated that more than I can say.
It was a hard morning. For no reason at all. I’m just so disappointed in what seems to sure to be another failed cycle. I’m just so loathing a ruined Thanksgiving. Lots of tears fell. I hate facing my classes after I’ve been crying. Especially when I don’t even have a very good reason for crying in the first place.
Today I outed myself on Facebook. I did it slyly, it was kind of genius in fact. I just wrote a quick update asking if anyone could give me any info on infertility treatments at Kaiser, that I was curious what we should expect. I liked this strategy because it didn’t pressure anyone into responding if they felt uncomfortable and made it hard to deposit assvice in the comment section. Hopefully this way people will get an idea of what we’re going through and others’ who are struggling will know they are not alone.
Of course the post has been crickets all day long, except for one ALI blogger saying she may be able to hook me up with someone (which I really appreciated because I DO want some info on what to expect).
Later, if/when we get a diagnosis and if/when we pursue treatments I will put more on Facebook because I think people should know that secondary infertility is a thing, and that someone they know may be dealing with it.
I know everyone has difference comfort levels when it comes to “outing” themselves on Facebook. I wonder, did you ever “out” yourself on social media during or after IF? If so, how and why? If not, do you ever plan to?
