Hey all. First time posting. I couldn't find in a search of previous posts answers to a question I ask myself often: what do I do now to have purpose if I'm not going to be a mother or mother figure (no nieces or nephews)?
I'd love to hear your thoughts. Part of me thinks I need to find a way to spend my energy - a business, a cause, a hobby, a new skill...not sure. I also feel like I need SOMETHING to talk about when trying to be social. I feel like I have nothing to say about what is going on in my life, since infertility has been the cloud over everything for so long. My friends try to be nice and ask about my job and my dog, but I really need something else.
I had told myself a year ago, which was just before the first IVF round, that if this didn't work out, I'd make sure I got into the best shape of my life. Well, post IVF #2, and 4+ years of trying, I'm at my lowest low in the acceptance of my life without kids....and trying to channel that into exercise. I have all my workout gear on right now, but couldn't help but first to post this before I get to the sit ups!
