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?
