If you are looking for serious, you came to the wrong page. If you don’t like sarcastic humor, you won’t like these posts. If you aren’t in the mood to laugh about infertility, then this isn’t for you. Don’t get me wrong, infertility is not funny. It’s heartbreaking, painful, dream shattering, and challenging. There is nothing funny about spending thousands of dollars in order to have a “chance” at getting pregnant. There is nothing funny about hiking your legs up in the air and stacking pillows under your derriere after baby-making sex. And there is definitely nothing funny about being pulled over by a State Trooper because you were speeding down the interstate in order to get your husband’s semen (which is tightly tucked in between your boobs in order to stay warm) to the nearest doctor’s lab. Nope–not funny at all.
But if you don’t find the humor through some of the challenges of infertility, I believe you will tragically slowly forget what it was like to smile. You will forget how to enjoy the simple pleasures throughout the day and you will eventually forget what it was like to be happy.
This is why I have created, “The Comic Section.” I have learned that we can’t change everything life throws at us, but we can change our attitude. So, go ahead laugh like a hyena and giggle like a schoolgirl at all the crazy things you are doing, have done, or will do in order to create a “mini me”. After all, I believe it’s time for us to start enjoying the journey while on the way to our destination.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength. Proverbs 17:22
