Spreading the News: The Cycle (Sept 27, 2013)

Just wanna spread the news about The Cycle, a wonderful public forum for people diagnosed with infertility that will be held in NYC on September 27, 2013. Whether you're still trying or you've adopted or thinking of adopting or you've let go of the dream and move on or you have an infertile friend and would like to learn more about it, this forum is for you. For more info about the event, go here

Anyways, today I just had my dam broken. You know one of those moments when you've watched or read or heard something that just suddenly touched some tender parts inside of you and then you just can't help yourself but cry? The kind of crying that is cleansing, I mean. Not the kind of "woe is me" type of crying.

I read "Not Just Baby" and the dam just broke. It felt like I was being held by a friend who truly understood what I had gone through because she herself had gone through a similar path, to whom I didn't need to explain myself in great lengths on why IF affected me so much and why IF-related thoughts could appear out of the blue even when someone else was talking about something completely mundane to me. I felt justified to be in my IF-scented world. I just love this kind of cleansing experience and for that, I'm SO thankful.


  1. It sounds like a book definitely worth reading. I'm so glad you found such nuturing from it. I'm not quite ready to read the books yet, but will add it to my list.
    Much love

  2. Just clicked on your link and realised it is not a book, but I've site I've also come across! :) Still, the sentiment is the same - so glad it was helpful to you.

    1. Oh yeah, I did notice your name in the comment section of the blog post. :-) I'm also glad it was so helpful to me.


THANKS for dropping by and for leaving a comment. :-) I truly appreciate it. :-)
