Thankfulness

I just want to thank everyone that sent me words of encouragement yesterday! It means so much to me and helps me a lot! I had someone at work pretty much making fun of me yesterday. She was saying, "you don't even know those people on those blogs, but you act like they're your friends." I was so hurt by that! You are all friends to me! It is so awesome to have people going through the same things! We are able to encourage each other and it means so much to me. Even though we haven't ever met in person, I feel like we have such a special bond because of the infertility journey we share! Thanks so much to all my blogger friends!!!...and of course to all of my friends(that i have met in person;)) that read my blog! You are all so special to me!

Unless someone blogs...they just can't understand. :) Especially those who haven't been through IF. I have made true friends through my blog...we email on a daily/weekly basis and pray and encourage one another. It's an awesome support system.

((hugs))

Awww, you're so sweet! I agree completely! Some of my blogger friends I'm closer to than friends in life who I see and actually talk to. :) I don't know what I would do without my blogger friends. :)

Thanks for your support on my blog! You're so sweet! I really needed that today so thank you!!!

What you are saying is so true! It is nice to have someone who knows what you are going through. If you need anything, you know where to go! :-)

Its so nice even though its unfortunate to share what you are going through and unless they are in your shoes they will never know or understand:)

Oh lindsey.. i haven't checked out the blogs in a while. I am saddened and infuriated that someone that we work with made you feel so hurt. No one understands what this journey is like. No-one. Unless you've been thru this crazy experience. You can tell people how it feels. They can watch you cry. They can watch you drive yourself practically crazy by doing all the research. And it's easy for them to say don't worry about it because they don't know what it feels like to always wonder.. hmm.. maybe this will be the time i get to actually get pregnant. I don't feel like i have any words of wisdom, because i feel like i'm always so scared myself. I am here to be a listening ear though. :) Because even though our situations are a little different, our goal is the same. All my love and prayers for you.

I think it is nice to be able to talk openly about something that only the people going through it can understand. In reading your blog and others, it helps validate my feelings when I feel the exact same way about being scared. I will keep you in my prayers.

Only someone who has never dealt with the challenges of infertility would say something so mean. I wish that there would have been more people blogging when we were going through our infertility challenges because it would have given me hope and strength, whether I ever met them in person or not. Thank you for sharing your challenges with all of us!!! You are amazing!!
