Hey ladies, I'm fully aware that people are not always open & honest about the struggles they face in life and particularly now with social media many people only present their 'best self' but does anyone struggle with frustration that some of their (even closest) friends moan about the most trivial of things while you're sat here like 'hello, try being infertile, with endometriosis and about to face your 4th IVF'?!
I have a good friend who've I've never had any doubts about and who has been understanding during our IVF roller coaster (as understanding as she can be with 4 children that came easily!) but who will mindlessly sit and have a little moan about 'problems' that I would happily swap for my day to day struggles. I feel so guilty even saying this and I know we all have our stuff to deal with but unless people are really hiding some things, some people really have it so much easier than others 😕
My friend recently had to miss some social occasions because one of her children were poorly and it was clearly a big inconvenience. I couldn't help thinking she would never cope with the unpredictably and intrusiveness of IVF. Am I a bad person/friend for thinking this? I would never ask anyone in the 'real world' but I know I can be honest on here ❤️ Sorry for ranting, it's just been one of those days I guess x
