Hi! My name is Julia, and I am a pessimist.
This usually serves me well in managing expectations and it lends itself to my particular brand of sarcasm. But when it's time to stay positive, I have a problem.
I am the mom of an amazing little girl. We decided we wanted try to have a baby and then *poof*, I was pregnant. The pregnancy and delivery that got her here were...not fun. I swore I was never going to do that again! And then that squawking lump grew into this awesome miniature person and I felt so much love my heart grew three sizes that, er, half year.
So we decided to try to have another baby, expecting another *poof*. And we did what comes naturally, and we waited. And we waited some more. And nothing happened. For a while we thought we just needed to be more patient, so we kept on waiting. After a year it became clear it was time to call in the pros. Now I have an appointment to see a specialist... in three months.
I'm having a hard time keeping my spirits up as the months wear on and on. What do you do to stay positive?
