Crack the Code of the F.E.R.T.I.L.E. Mind
Does struggling with fertility issues leave you feeling like you are locked in an emotional prison?
With everyone else appearing to be getting on with their lives, whilst you stay trapped in limbo. That place of wondering if whether you should still have hope, or if it’s time to give up on your desire to have a baby.
It’s not fair is it? It feels like everyone else is getting pregnant with ease, or maybe worse, all of your other friends struggling with fertility issues are one by one getting pregnant too. You want to feel happy for them but with every pregnancy or birth announcement you see, it feels like someone is twisting the knife ever deeper into your emotionally wounded heart. The guilt you feel about this adds to your pain and you feel forced to put your fake smile on and pretend that everything is ok.
You wonder if there is anybody out there who can truly understand what it is that you are going through.
Even when you make an effort to explain you feel misunderstood and perhaps even angry at your friends, family and colleagues, for their ill-informed words that they think should make you feel better.
