Maybe she took it as an insult, as in, hanging out with kids is not fun, therefore, you wouldn't want to hang out with her and her kids. People are so dense sometimes.


Maybe she did. Maybe she now sees me as the horrible witch from Hanzel in Gretel. "Yummy children!" Posted Image

Thanks Mkttc, I think that is all I was looking for, some sort of acknowledgement. But I guess you can't always get what you want.

Just to continue my story. My DH came back last night after fishing with the DH of this lady. She forwarded on my text to her DH. He said to my husband. "Your wife is funny." Then read him my text, followed by the comment "Is your wife down in the dumps these days." My DH responded. "Nope, why would you say that? She was just saying the truth."

I love my DH sometimes. At least I know he gets it.


Now that couple knows that you are made for each other and are both "funny" people in that way. :D

They don't get it. They are wrapped up in their own world and they are waiting for you to say that you drank the happy Kool Aid and you can immediately put aside your pain, while they offer NO support of sympathy.

They have probably come to the conclusion that you don't like kids. My SIL has been accused of that and she's been dealing with IF for 15 years. I was at a family gathering when a neighbour of another family member went up to her and accused her of not liking/wanting kids based on...her lack of kids. Genius. People can be small-minded.

Just remember your truth.

This is one of the best cranks from the male perspective on other people's kids and their parents. Warning, seriously coarse language at times.

Nothing in particular.

So I was watching the news and an 18 year old was arrested for some very serious violent crimes in the city. 18 years old. Even though he's well down the road of being a hardened criminal, he still had a baby face. What a loss. Like, what could he have become if he had a better upbringing?

It made me think of something I saw on FB:

How's this for grouchy?

The last few days I've just felt tired and stressed.... about work, about our house that hasn't sold yet, about trying to unpack the new house, and don't even start on the 2WW.

So, get up this morning, decide on peanut butter. Mmmmm, pb and toast and tea...... except that DH has put the pb container back in the cupboard totally empty. Like, scraped clean.

I seriously considered crawling into bed with him and twisting his testicles off.

Instead, I put the empty container back, and emptied out the coffee canister. So tomorrow morning before his conference call when he goes looking for coffee he'll be s*** outa luck.

Witchy, but I don't care. It's not the first time he's pulled this crap. For such a kind, caring, and considerate man, he can be a real dough head.

Looking forward to the update about the empty coffee!

Gibasgirl, I was just reading through this thread when my guy walked in & read your Facebook 'share':
'Don't marry a man unless you would be proud to have a son exactly like him.'

He just smiled ;)

I really like this thread. Even before I was a member of this site I would always read this thread and I read it before it exploded. It's nice to see people that have the courage to wake up everyday and keep going in spite of infertility and all the craziness that comes with infertility (mainly comments from friends and family). Since my first failed ivf I just wish I could get over it and move on, but instead I'm wallowing in self pity.

The friendly fire from family is a challenge. My two sisters are Mombies and think nothing of giving me assvice like "just relax" or "it's not meant to be" but when I protest and point out their insensitivity, I am portrayed as the bad guy.

It's a one-way street.

It's always hard to have sympathy for other people when you're not feeling it yourself. It's easy to tell a depressed person to "snap out of it" when you feel fine, or to tell someone in a bad relationship to dump the jerk already but when you're that person and feeling those feelings, it's totally different. And IF is something that I think people who haven't experienced it have a lot of trouble understanding the really deep feelings of. I know I certainly had trouble before I felt it myself - I didn't understand how anyone could take someone else getting pregnant easily personally when it's clearly not about them... right up until I did. And I'm not a negative person at all, and I hated being that person, but it's what it does to you and other people don't get it.

Not that I'm excusing it, but I get it. I think it's made me be a lot more accepting of other people's feelings as being valid even if I don't fully understand what or why they feel that way. It would be nice if others who give us grief over what we feel would do the same.

So true, frostedlemon. I can tolerate the lack of understanding from people who haven't ever experienced it. I find it much harder though when friends who HAVE experienced infertility suddenly have success and then choose to forget how hard it was. I even have one friend who completely dropped me once she had her baby.

Maybe it's a coping mechanism to distance themselves or get amnesia ... who knows?
