Solidarity

Things at work are better than last week, when I was up late working every night, but I’m still facing tight deadlines and lots of stress, so I don’t have much time to spend reading or writing blogs. Nevertheless, I wanted to post a quick note about the get together for DC area bloggers and readers. I had been looking forward to it for so long that I was surprised to realize on my way there that I was a bit nervous. I’ve always been pretty shy, so meeting with a group of people none of whom I’d met in person was bit daunting. Those feelings passed pretty quickly though. It was great evening with a fabulous bunch of women. ‘Thanks’ to LJ for setting it up. It was such a relief to be able to talk out load about all this infertility crap with a whole bunch of people who “get it”. And the really great thing is that even though what brought us all together is something rather unhappy, we laughed a lot and had a great time. Now I can’t wait for the next one!

I think we're all nervous - we've been vulnerable for so long.

I'm so glad you were able to come out this round!

Great meeting you at dinner. I was just reading some of your posts and I see you did a mini stim IVF cycle. Can you please email me when you get a chance? I have an appointment with your doc on 8/8, and I'm interested in doing a MS-IVF cycle.

Hi Bean, thanks for your comment...I haven't been here before, I think you emerged during my "blogging hiatus". Nice to meet you, it seems as though we are struggling with alot of the same issues.

Oh, and I'm fairly certain that our daughters have the same first name, so we have that going for us too.

Bean, send me an e-mail at smarshyfiles at yahoo dot com, and I'll e-mail you how I figured that out, I don't want to do it in a public forum.
