    Posted this to my FB and 3 people, including 2 people who had gone through successful IF treatment, responded that others shouldn’t have to worry about how others will react to their comments about TTC or surprise announcements at Thanksgiving or other holidays. (I added a part about thinking twice before doing this when I shared the link.) No one asked their opinions - it’s literally telling those who are struggling that it’s okay to feel however they want without feeling guilty.

    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*

  • @NYTino24 this is a great article. That sucks that people took it as a warning against making announcements/comments, etc. Obviously whoever had the knee-jerk reaction didn't read it or read it very carefully.

  • @NYTino24 Jeez... people will always think they are most important and get defensive.  Sorry that they took it that way and made it about them ❤

    My WTF happened while getting my nails done.   TW 
    There was a pg nail tech there so the woman next to me was chatting with her tech about the pg girl and her own kids....
    My nail tech asks me if I have any kids, to which I simply say "not yet".  She asks how long I'm married and I say "3 and a half years".  She replied "oh you're not desperate".  Confused I blurt out "for what" and she responds "kids".  W..T..F??!!  So much for my relaxing me time...

    @emeraldduchess Well that was part of my point - be aware that some people may be struggling, especially during the holidays, and maybe don’t do a surprise in-person thing on a holiday and / or don’t ask childless people / those who maybe have secondary IF TTC questions.
    @ziggymama06 I feel like it’s inescapable. TV, radio, commercials, ads, etc. Sorry it wasn’t relaxing for you.

  • @ziggymama06 I will probably never believe that people say stuff like that until it happens to me.

  • @NYTino24 💕💕💕 I think the article itself proves that point nicely in the beginning - it’s far easier to look back on the IF journey from the other side, however they get there. It’s sad that some people lack empathy for others even after having lived through it themselves. 

    @ziggymama06 so sorry, friend. That nail tech can go fly a kite in my opinion.

  • Dude, @NYTino24, they all missed the damn point of the article or outed themselves as having not read it. I’m sorry they felt entitled to share their very wrong opinions on the subject.

  • @NYTino24 wow are their comments tone deaf! They definitely did not read the article. Sorry people can be such trash!

  • @NYTino24 I definitely needed that article, thank you for sharing! So sorry for the comments you got, like others have said...they clearly didn’t read the article and have obviously forgotten about how it felt being on the other side! 
    @ziggymama06 ugh, so sorry that happened! Sending hugs your way...sorry that ruined your relaxing me time!

  • Thanks girls.  Definitely caught me by surprise.  Obviously I've had ppl ask me if I have children and that's fine, whatever... just so odd how ppl have no regards for what may be going on below the surface.  Had a nice night with hubs and ready to pig out tomorrow.  Hope everyone enjoys their Thanksgiving 💗
