It's that time of week again!!!
This week I am featuring Slackie O. from over at My Lazy Ovaies
Here is a little message from Slackie:
Hi. My name is Slackie and I’m infertile. It has been 23 days since my last POAS.
[OK, let me hear you say it: “Hi Slackie!”]
Let me introduce myself! I’m one month shy of 38 years old. Yowza that’s hard to believe! Near the end of 2008, my husband and I decided it was time to expand our family to three, and after the usual responsible preparations, we began to make a real effort to do so in January of 2009. Twenty months and twenty cycles later, we’ve learned more than we ever wanted to know about reproduction and yet we remain a family of two.
I started my Twitter (and soon after that my blog) a few months ago, just a couple of cycles back on the wagon post-miscarriage. I was feeling very lost, frustrated, hopeless and alone. I was quickly scooped up in the welcoming embrace of the most amazing community of people all of whom are suffering from a similar crisis, all of whom share my most basic desire. Bad days still happen, I still get frustrated and sometimes temporarily lose hope, but I am no longer lost and I know I’m not alone.
That’s me up there, or at least, my feet. The photo was taken on a recent vacation, and believe it or not, those clouds blew right on past and the day finished beautiful and sunny. I love that photo because it reminds me that in spite of the dim forecast, if I can sit tight in this spot of sun, the day might just improve.
I want to say a huge THANK YOU to Aly for pulling together the New Blog Friday feature! I’ve already found some great new friends through it, and I’m looking forward to finding more. Please feel free to find me on Twitter or stop by my blog and say "Hi"!
Nice to meet you!Slackie O.
