I wanted to write this post because I have found many websites about infertility, but none are really geared towards people who just can't have children. I am in my 30s and when I was 31 I had to have a hysterectomy. I searched and searched the web for advise from people who were like me, but websites seemed to be about ways to get pregnant, IFV or surrogacy. I know the topics are similar, but somehow I don't get any comfort reading about IVF because there is no hope for me in that way.
Anyway, due to this, and other reasons I am writing a blog nochildrenwhatnow.wordpress... to try and come to terms with my childlessness. I am also part of a support group on facebook which sometimes helps when I want to vent. I think the hardest part of it all is that people who can have children, underestimate the impact childlessness has on our lives. They are sympathetic to begin with, but then forget, and can be really insensitive at times.
To those who can have IVF good luck! I really wish you well, and hope your dreams of a child will soon happen. For those of us who can't well, we'll be ok once we appreciate our lives for what they are and count the blessings that we do have. I don't suppose it's the end of the world, but it sure feels like it at times.
