A journey to myself

I have lived through countless moves, a layoff, a divorce and lost my both parents at the same time and yet nothing could have adequately prepared me for the journey of self-discovery that infertility has. Infertility has been the most painful thing I have ever lived through. And yet, it’s also been the test that has shown me how strong and resilient I truly am.

I know this will sound strange and maybe even crass, but my parents died together almost six years ago and dealing with that loss was far easier than my struggle with infertility.
