You know who you are! You’ve been enmeshed in the infertility battle duking it out body and soul. Or, unlike the woman I wrote about in my last post, you are warriors who have been there for colleagues, relatives, friends and neighbors. You care.
For a limited time you can get (for free) a magnet sticker with the Infertility Awareness logo and the phrase “Millions struggle in silence” from Patrice, who is making them available from her Infertility Warrior website.
I’m also pleased to announce that the second edition of Exhale is now available online. In addition to a male perspective, one of my favorite writers, Christina, has joined as an infertility book/blog reviewer. Amid the many thought-provoking contributions in this issue, you’ll also find my column, A Foreigner Among Peers. It attempts to convey the weirdness of being the only non-mom in a gathering of moms. You can learn about how to contribute your own essay, poem, or visual here.
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on a image to convey the non-linear experience of confronting infertility. How did I do?
