I am a 50-something European woman doing what I once thought wasn't possible: finding happiness after infertility. While it's been a long, difficult and emotional journey (10 unsuccessful IVF treatments), each day I take another step down the path toward a fulfilling new life. This is my story of reinvention.
I will be happy to hear from you: klara.soncek (@ ) gmail.com
I have just returned from lovely mini holidays in Croatia, I was on this island: http://www.krk.hr/en/
It was sunny and very warm, so we spent lots of time on the beach. Those two photos are from the only day that was cloudy, so we had a bit of time for sightseeing.
I didn't check my email for 4 days, so it was only today that I read a thank you email from someone from other part of the world who is accepting her childless life. I was deeply touched to read her email, especially the lines: ", and your blog has been a HUGE part of my healing."
Thank you for writting to me..... wishing you all the best!
I had a tough day at work. Everything was just perfect until our pregnant coworker came after 6 months of sick leave to greet us. I didn't know until today that she had one IVF and the very first one worked for her.
Don't get me wrong. This coworker is a lovely girl. Very witty and full of life. Everybody laughed when she shared funny stories about the IVF procedure.
I felt very old, grey and bitter. There just isn't anything funny about my 10 failed IVFs. I would prefer to delete those memories out of my head for good. But I can't, I will always live with them.
