Couldn’t have said it better myself

I just can’t say it any better myself, so go here and read this post.

It’s something that I’ve struggled with throughout this journey — handling other people’s pregnancies.  Basically feeling like a complete shithead because it’s so difficult to be happy for the gazillion people in my life popping out babies with ease.

A friend, after attending my birthday party in June, said that she realized I really wasn’t kidding when I said that ‘everyone I know is pregnant’, as she watched literally almost all my friends filter in with their pregnant bellies/babies/toddlers.

It was so great to read this blog post and know that I wasn’t alone in my feelings.  I beat myself up on a regular basis for not being a better friend.  But sometimes it’s just too damn painful.  I know it’s self-preservation, but it doesn’t help me feel any better about it.


Why are you still here?  Go read that post!

    This article certainly will open people’s eyes on how you are feeling…but always remember – you are a terrific friend to all you know, never doubt that.

    Such a profound feeling of sadness for my friend…I wish there was that magic word or amazing wisdom that would make you “FEEL” better. I guess there is nothing at this point but continued prayers and positive thoughts from me to you…I so want this to work for you!!! Please know that I think of you often and wish the best of everything for you!!!
