I just wanted to pass this along, because I know everyone deals with grief differently, and I am someone who is very goal-oriented and I get very depressed when I am unable to accomplish something (TTC included). Last year I was an emotional wreck, because not only did I m/c, but it was a partial molar pregnancy, so the gyno. scared me about the moles possibly being linked to cancer and warned me not to TTC for a year. That is a HUGE commitment to make for someone who desperately wants to accomplish the goal of getting KTFU (at least I was desperate at the time, not so much now). As a result, I totally ignored doing anything I enjoyed for the longest time and make myself miserable. I often get mad at myself for wasting those days of my life being so miserable. So anyway, this time around (in addition to seeking counseling), I have made a promise to myself to celebrate little things. Even though going to work is such a great distraction, I am going to reward myself for getting through this week on Friday by doing something silly for myself that I enjoy (I'm thinking pedicure?). Because, as we all know, m/cs absolutely SUCK, nobody should ever have to experience them, and just by dealing with them in our lives, I think we all deserve a little reward here and there. Anybody thinking of any ways they can reward themselves for getting through the day, week, month, or year? (Note: it doesn't have to cost anything. My feet are just really achy and I've been ignoring them).
