What you really want to share, but can’t….

We’ve become a virtual society flooded with memes, GIFS, pictures, graphics, YouTube videos, et., etc., etc. Hello, visual overload!!! We can’t open up FB, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, or even the plain ‘ole Internet without being bombarded by some visual stimuli!

For a girl slapped with the infertility label it’s a struggle. You see a meme that you identify with and would love to share but those fertile people won’t understand. It’s not that you want the pity you just want the acknowledgment that “Yes!!! Someone out there gets me!!!” You don’t want to hunker down in shame, bury your head under a rock, or live in hiding. Infertility is a disease-it’s not your fault, it’s not my fault and we shouldn’t feel ashamed.

This journey is rough and a roller coaster ride of emotions, but sometimes you just need a little humor to get ya through! So for all my infertility sisters-these memes are for you. I get it. I feel your pain. I’m in the valley with you. And, when you come out I’ll be there, too. Rejoicing in your victory!  Hopefully, some of these will bring a smile to your face today!

So, dear friend which was your favorite? What would you like to share that you’re holding back?


P.S. If you’re a fellow infertility sister, I’d love to hear your story and add you to my prayer list. Infertility is lonely in a world full of babies so, it’s nice knowing you’re not alone.

  1. I have a question…Do you ever get frustrated when a mom tells you how easy you have it because you have no kids? Then proceed to complain about theirs. They complain in hopes of making you see just how “blessed” you are. Sometimes in all honesty it sort of makes you bitter. Thank you for sharing your journey. A lot of people think that just because you don’t have it then it doesn’t hurt.

    1. Yes, I do get frustrated. It’s part of being human. I work at an elementary school and it’s very frustrating to hear parents complain about their children. They don’t realize how much I would give to trade places with them. But, what I’ve found more often is that people don’t know what to say when they hear of my struggles so, the words they mean to be a comfort are often more of a hurt. That’s where the brave smile comes in. Infertility is one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with and most people, especially those who’ve never struggled to conceive, don’t understand the pain. Thank you for taking time to read about my journey. I will keep you in my prayers!
