For the past four months I have gone to my support group and sat there, reading. No one showed up, and I went home. It was very awkward at times, sometimes discouraging, and sometimes I felt personal rejection. What am I doing wrong? Why doesn’t anyone want to come talk about infertility with me?
Well this week was different. This week, two women came. It was incredible. I can’t believe how quickly we bonded. It wasn’t awkward at all and we talked for an hour and fifteen minutes - having just met each other - and we could have stayed longer.
I’m not sure what other circumstances could bond women so quickly. Immediately we had a whole world in common.
It was beautiful.
