I am so grateful that I have many people supporting me while I am struggling with secondary infertility. I have friends who have been through this and they listen to me and tell me my emotions are normal. I have friends who have not been through infertility who take the time to listen and support. And of course, I have many of you who have been reading my posts here and offer your own insights and share your struggles and stories with me.
It means a lot to me and going through secondary infertility a little easier, knowing you’re not alone.
I know that generally when someone comments on a post or chats with me in real life, they’re trying to be supportive and most times, their comment comes across that way. There are times though that I can see someone is wanting to help, to offer some advice or insight, but they may be going about it the wrong way. I know they’re not trying to be hurtful or insulting — but there are wrong ways to support someone even if you’re intentions are good.
