I just wanted to post to all you strong, brave ladies and gents as I’ve always found the support and advice on here a massive help in keeping me sane on this long and difficult journey.
Although we all have slightly different stories and will all be at different stages, we are all on the same path, battling with the pain and massive mixture of emotions that infertility can bring.
Some days we can cope and find ourselves standing up and carrying on despite the weight on our shoulders but other times it can be too much to bare and it can all seem completely hopeless.
This is how I found myself a couple of weeks ago (there was an awful lot going on for me on top of our fertility struggles) and a lovely friend that I feel so lucky to know set me the task of looking for one positive thing each day to text her that evening. I honestly couldn’t think of anything that first day as I was so low I couldn’t see a purpose to anything so eventually came up with
‘My favourite bottle of wine was on offer in Tesco!’ (Not the best start but still a start!) but since then day by day I have found myself looking out for positives to tell her - it sounds a bit cheesy but it’s completely true - and now it’s easy to tell her a few good things about my day.
So, I thought I would see if this could work for us on here. Each night this week I’m going to post a positive from my day and would love as many of you to post one too - even just seeing others nice experiences might help us see our own.
This is such an isolating journey so if we can share some positivity surely that can only be a good thing.
So here goes.....
Today it was meant to be raining but it’s the first chance I’ve had to take my dog for a nice long walk for a while but when me and my husband got out the weather was beautiful. We found a new woods not far from the house we’ve just moved to and it really made me feel happy seeing my dog bouncing around in his element, plus we found a lovely spot overlooking some fields to sit together and we actually talked properly together for the first time in ages.
I’d love to hear about some more happy moments
