So I had to share this with everyone. We are all on this roller coaster ride of a journey. Some are here for known issues, some are here for unexplained and some are here for personal reasons. But the one thing we all need is the support from those who know what is like to be poked, prodded and stuck with more needles that we ever thought was imaginable. Plus we then to have to be at the mercy of nature and the doctors (and God) while friends, family and co-workers get pregnant at the drop of a hat.
It is a stressful journey just getting to this phase. And it is an even more stressful journey to continue at times. That is what makes this so special. Last week I found out that one of my co-workers was having to do IVF. I know her, but not well and until about a month ago I could not tell you her name. But we both found out that we were doing IVF with the same clinic - but i am 5 weeks before her.
She is very nervous since it is her first time and I am very nervous because I know the heart ache this can bring. But together we are here for each other. I told her that I would even go to her appointments with her if her DH can’t make it. No one should go through this alone. So now she checks on me several times a day, she is my cheerleader. And she even left me a card telling me that is so excited about being on this journey together.
So the moral of this story is that we find our angels in all different places and all different forms. And just when you think that you need something, you find out that someone needs that same thing even more. In this case I think that I was the one that needed it more.
