Hollow Words Swirling in My Head: Infertility and Heartache


I can hear my own words ringing loudly in my head…

…it’s okay to cry

…it’s okay to be angry

…don’t give up hope

…I’m here if you want to talk

…have you thought about joining a support group?

Yes, these things are all swirling around in my head…

…but in this moment, I find no solace in them.

Because my period has arrived and brought with it so much sadness that the tears have been unstoppable today.

This month is the toughest one I’ve had in a while.

No amount of rationalization is helping me right now.

So, the only thing that I can do from my list above is cry.

And hope that I have the strength to tackle the others tomorrow.
