A letter in recognition of my self-centeredness

Dear Interwebs,
When you spend so many of your days in angst over your own (in)fertility, and lamenting each and every pregnancy announcement, it’s easy to forget that it really isn’t all about YOU. There are other people that have things that make them stressed and freaked out, things that are baby related,  things that are pregnancy related, and things that are fertility rated.

When you learn that someone you know is experiencing a suspected miscarriage and battling the medical system to understand it all, do you know how you feel about all your whining?


I mean, really, it’s not like I’m the first women to ever experience miscarriage. And while it would be good if I was the last, that’s not the case either. So on when this sort of thing happens, PLEASE DON’T LET IT HAPPEN OFTEN, it makes you take stock and realise that this person you know is going through an extremely lousy time and you’d better stop feeling so sorry for yourself and get over it already so that you can be there for others when and if they need you.

That is all. Thank you.
