Coming Out

In honor of National Infertility Awareness Week, I followed the lead of a friend and outed myself on fac.eb.ook.

Like, totally outed myself. And I even changed my security for that ONE POST so that EVERYONE could see it. It was a brief post, but included length of time, cycle count, miscarriages, surgeries, and how many/what treatments we have done.

I feel very exposed. My family and close friends have known all along. But fac.eb.ook? That's a totally different thing.

But... I'm glad I did it. Please read this article and see if you feel inspired to share publicly. Maybe just a neighbor, or a co-worker. The point is: We NEED to talk about this.

I outed myself on FB too (for the 2nd time), although I didn't share details... I was surprised that I actually got supportive responses. Last year, there was nothing.

Good for you for being so brave!
