We are having beautiful sunny & hot summer in my country. And I literally do not have any time for any thinking about infertility :)
There are 2 alpine lakes near where I live (above is the photo of one of them). They are beautiful, especially the one on the photo, that is less touristy. So from Friday to Monday I went swimming every single day! Both lakes have now 24 C and they are crystal clear.
I couldn't help of thinking of last year's August. I was already on different drugs, preparing my body for a treatment with egg donation. And my body did not take drugs well - it was so swollen for many weeks. So I missed the whole swimming season.
I really really enjoy my drug-free summer & swimming so much!
In the first year of my infertility I was so sorrow & bitter that I could not even be kind to any kids in the neighbourhood. Now it is easier every year (I really do love children, at least most of them). I am kind to them. I know how to talk with small kids.
Yesterday when I took my trash out, I saw in the distance a neighbour. And her 3 year old daughter said very loudly: "Look mommy, there is my friend!". Isn't it sweet? It was the first time ever that a child so young called me a friend :)
And this neighbour isn't really a close friend, it is just a girl that I have known for ages so we always chat a bit when we meet.
