I need to vent!!! Please no r&r!!


THIS IS THE MOST STRESSFUL THING ANY WOMAN WILL EVER GO THROUGH! I AM TRYING NOT TO LET MYSELF GET TOO CAUGHT UP IN IT. BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE OUT THERE AND SOME HERE ON THIS FORUM AS WELL THAT FEEL THE NEED TO SAY THINGS THAT ARE NOT APPROPRIATE. I KNOW MY BODY BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE, AND I NEED SUPPORT EMOTIONALLY. I'M NOT ASKING FOR MUCH AM I? I THINK NOT!MY DH IS 10 YRS OLDER THAN ME. I AM 29, NOT EVEN IN MY 30'S AND THE PROBLEM IS ME!!! I AM STRUGGLING SO HARD WITH THINGS RIGHT NOW. I'VE LOST WEIGHT, I'VE QUIT DRINKING CAFFEINE, I REMAIN CALM, I TAKE VITAMINS, I AM DOING EVERYTHING I POSSIBLY CAN, BUT START MY PERIOD AND OVULATE ON MY OWN. JUST FED UP!!! SORRY, HAD TO GET IT OFF MY CHEST! KNEW MOST OF YOU WOULD UNDERSTAND. MAY NEED TO VENT A LITTLE MORE AFTER WHILE!

First off .

I totally hear you hun. TTC is soo stressful...without other people, who have no idea what they are talking about giving their "opinion" which is generally very unhelpful ! Sounds to me like you are doing everything right , its hard when our bodies won't cooperate with us. I myself don't ovulate or get AF regularly and i NEVER have done, even when i was my Ideal weight and yet the doctors want to use my weight as the be all and end all of it . Its so frustrating. I know my weight is an issue, and I am trying to do something about it, but its hard, people forget to see the positive things we are doing, i.e. I have quite smoking (hardest thing I have EVER done in my life), drinking alcohol and caffeine, I have even came off pain medication that I was on for chronic pain management... but its never good enough is it?

i hope you feel better soon honey , I know there are the occassional person/time where people on here can be a little insensitive but for the most part the ladies are lovely and very supportive, especially in the LTTC forum. I hope you find the support you need. As for friends and family, I sometimes wonder if they just seriously have no concept of how hard it is... its probably not nastiness but more ignorance to your situation (doesn't stop it being hurtful or upsetting I know) .

Big honey

to you xx

Really, some people in the LTTC forums have been saying inappropriate things to you? I'm not asking for names, I'm just taken aback that anyone would say insensitive comments about your journey. After all no matter the heartbreaking story, we can ALL relate to one another in some way. Seeing as we're all trying to achieve the same goal.

LTTC sucks, I wouldn't wish infertility on my worst enemy. It's ok to vent, the great thing is there's always someone on here to respond.

I am so sorry that someone on this forum has upset you. It is bad enough that we are having such a hard time with it as it is, you really don't need someone you go to for support to bring you down. Stay strong, hun!
