10 years later, today, our worries consist of the next fertility treatment…will we be the only one at our high school reunion that doesn’t have a child…will we make it to the parenthood chapter in our lives? 10 years later, today, we support each other throughout all our hard times, the negative pregnancy test, the dreaded AF, the progesterone levels, the hard symptoms of Clomid….all of the normal “trying to conceive struggles”.
10 years ago, Rosemary and myself started this notebook…
We wrote back in forth in the notebook exchanging it daily. I never realized how much of an impact that notebook would have on me 10 years later…this past weekend she brought me something to read, it was the notebook. She still had it! We read though some of it together and laughed so hard at how dramatic we were about things…about how serious we took these “high school boyfriends”. I took the book home that night and stayed up reading the whole thing.
We changed a lot in 10 years, we grew up, got married to amazing men…but one thing remains the same, our support system and our friendship.
10 years ago if you asked us if we would be in the “same” situation 10 years later we would have laughed. God knew what he was doing when he gave us infertility-he knew that with each other by our sides we can get through this. Rosemary supported me and has been that shoulder I needed to cry on more than I can count throughout my life. It’s bittersweet that she is by my side now. I am extremely happy that I can confide in her and she can understand my feelings; however I’m tremendously sad she too is going through this journey.
This past weekend while reading our notebook I was flooded with so many emotions—thank you Rosie for saving that; we have been through so much together and we will get through this as well :) Love you!
