I got it!...I think I'm getting it...I'm not sure, but I'm trying my best!

Well, first of all I would like to say THANK YOU to all of you! You have no idea how much each of you has blessed my life! I had no idea what kind of support I had been missing out on these last 3.5 years as I've wallowed in self-pity and kept all of this built up inside of me. I thought that no one would understand what I was going through because "they all already have kids" but that is not it at all! As my sister-in-law Terri related to me today, pain is pain and all of us know what that feels like and, no matter what, we can all be there for each other in some way. I can't believe what LOVE and COMFORT I have received from my friends and family. I am so sorry that I underestimated each of you and I want you to know that that "yucky" part of me is gone. I feel so thankful. I have so much to learn!

THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! for all of your prayers. I have felt them. I don't recall a time in my life when I can say that I have experienced that before. It has been amazing to actually feel your prayers.

I have learned so much and I know there is still much to learn. I hope that you can continue to encourage me and help me through this and I hope to be able to do the same for each of you.

Love,
Danielle

I knew I recognized your name some some where other than 2ofus4now! Thanks for your kind words, it's so nice to have support from people who know how you feel. Don't worry about feeling bad. I still have pity parties for myself and who cares, you gotta do what you gotta do to get through this. I personal like to celebrate my infertility by seeing how much chocolate I can eat before getting sick. I am glad you started a blog and that you're feeling better.

Hi Danielle,

You don't know me. I saw your blog link on Amy Jensen's blog. I'm also dealing with infertility and I know exactly what you're going through...the heartache, the pain, the anger, frustration, etc. The feeling that no one else know what you're going through because they already have kids. The fact that you don't feel like you fit in anywhere...it can be very overwhelming at times. I go through cycles where I'm okay with our life, but then I go through cycles where I really have a hard time. I applaude you for being so open about your feelings - I on the other hand have a hard time with this. Hang in there. I'm trying to just remember that Heavenly Father has a plan for each of us and we might not understand it yet, but He does have a purpose for it all. Good luck with everything!!
