Thank goodness for perspective...

Well, here I am back at square one, as AF decided to show her ugly face today once more... Fortunately/Unfortunately something happened to us last week that has cushioned yet another blow by putting things into perspective for me. I almost lost my hubby last week... His appendicitis was misdiagnosed as "food poisoning" and by the time we realized it was something much more serious and rushed him to the ER, things had already taken a turn for the worst and his appendix oozed all over his insides... He spent almost a week in the hospital recovering. Thankfully everything turned out just fine and he is making an astoundingly quick recovery!

Yes, I'm bummed yet another month has gone by and still no BFP. I'm sad, but that's normal and to be expected... how else are you supposed to feel after 3 years of constant failure? However, despite the pain (emotional & physical, as the cramps are a killer this month) I am doing surprisingly well and haven't thrown my ususal "woe is me, life is so unfair, my life is over!" pity-party... why? Well, again, perspective... A LOT worse things than a BFN could have (and almost did) happened to me this month.

So up I get... yes, this sucks... I hurt and I feel like poo on a stick, BUT I have much to be gratefull for... my precious hubby! :)

I hope things have calmed down for you!!!! I'm so sorry you are going through so much!!!

I am posting this comment about the topic of 'endo in the media' (re: last week).

I’ve been blogging a lot about this because I’m concerned that the public is receiving misinformation about endo.

I’m asking bloggers I know who have endo to blog about this and sign my petition too. I’m planning to send petition to Oprah and “The View”...


***ANYONE*** wishing to help the endo cause can sign this petition... We have signatures from the US, the UK, South Africa, and Puerto Rico so far...

See my blog for details on the misinformation in the media last week following endo diagnoses for 2 contestants on "Dancing with the Stars".

Endo patients go through enough without mass media spreading misinformation about this devastating illness.

Please ask your friends & family to sign the endo awareness petition too. ANYONE who wants to create awareness & understanding about endometriosis can sign this petition!

Thank you!!!
