Support Group

Thursday, February 24, 2011

We have all longed for more discussion of infertility in the world at large, and this clip is from the Today Show this morning:

Visit for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy

Although there is no actual infertility support group in my area, I consider all my bloggy buddies (along with my amazing family and the friends who have stuck by my side) to be my support group. I could not have gotten through the hundreds of days of infertility without you. I totally agree with Alison that there is so much solace in the safety of an infertility support group- that is what I have felt every time I come to my blog and read your amazing comments.

And now that I am gratefully and miraculously on the other side, I want to be there for you. How can I help make our virtual support group better? How can I help you to feel more solace and more comfort when infertility is tearing you apart? Please let me know!!

Thank you for posting it! It always helps to hear others talk about their struggles.

I agree, we are a support group on here. My mom texted me about this, and I am glad I was able to see a clip from it! Thank you for sharing.

I *love* this. I can't begin to say what a difference blogging and meeting you wonderful women has made on this journey!

Kait said...

P.s. How did you post the video?

I cried watching that clip this afternoon it can be so isolating. The blog world has helped so, so much!

This might be a dumb question, but how do you acess this on-line support?
I've loved reading people's blogs, and I find great comfort in the feeling that I'm not the only one (though every blog I look at, the people end up pregnant (yay) so I keep having to add more!). But I don't have support as in people interesting in me and my story. Is it just by commenting? Are there forums I can join?
Any advice?

Thanks for posting this. I didn't get to watch until now. I def consider the blogs and bloggers I've connected with to be my support system. I would just ask you to keep doing what you've always done, you're an encouragement to all of us. =)

Wow, that was a great segment! Loved it! For once, I thought they were 100% right on (they're not always).

I think you do a fantastic job of supporting everyone. I think just having other people respond and say that they hear you and are thinking of you is huge. Letting you feel the feelings you are experience without telling you that "it's not so bad" or "things could be worse" like most of our IRL supporters (as well meaning as they are) is a big deal.
