Where am I???

So I managed to bring myself back to the world of the living - just barely.

I realized today that I was a bit overwhelmed with where I am.
Despite the fact that things are looking good (finally) I cannot get over the fact that this whole medical drama has literally sucked nearly 1 1/2 yrs of my life away.

My feelings are pretty mixed up about that - I am angry, sad and disgusted. I am frustrated and overwhelmed. I am completely ambivalent about it all:

Did I cause any of this to happen? NO. Do I still feel guilty that it has interrupted everything in my life as well as my husband and family? ABSOLUTELY. I am grateful that none of this stuff was life threatening? YES. I am disgusted and pissed that I had to go through three surgeries, three different surgeons & hospitals, to finally get to a healthy place? YOU BETCHA.

And I have been thinking about this blog... the blog which I started as a place to sound out my thoughts while I went on my journey to start a family.

I have had so much going on medically that I think I felt like I had no business posting here....which explains the disjointed posts of late. I felt like I was no longer part of the IF community and as such, felt out of place posting anything other than family building stuff.

Then suddenly I realized it.......FUCK ...this is MY BLOG.....my thoughts, my life, my world. And yes it did start out with a basis in IF community however life crept up and bit me on the ass.
It does that sometimes....and guess what? It does is to other people too! Amazing...isn't it? I am sure you all understand....I am sure some of you have been there yourself.
So I will write what I want to write....what I need to write....whatever it may be at the moment. I am sure that sometime soon I will venture back to posts about our family building.
For now however....I am here - and that's okay!


Still waiting on this damn drainage to slow down enough to have the drain pulled. I have a sneaking suspicion that I will feel much better once that's done. Crocheted item quota is reaching critical mass - gotta get out of this house soon!

I'm struggling with the same thing and I'm stuck. I have so much that I want to post, but I can't because I don't really know where I fit in anymore. We'll get through this together MyFriend. I'm glad you're feeling better though, that drain will come out soon and you'll be on top of the world again!
*Lots of Hugs & Kisses* =)

I can't imagine how hard your journey has been...to have even more medical drama piled on top. I send a special wish out for you, too today...that a special adoption falls into your lap in 2010.

Hope you start feeling better soon and can get out of the house and do something! ((hugs))

I'm so sorry life has bitten you in the butt lately! However, this is YOUR blog and I feel you should post whatever you want to!

I found your blog via the wish link at Mel's place. While I wasn't the one to comment on your blog officially, your wish made me want to stop by and give you some hope! A couple of weeks ago we had an adoption opportunity "fall into our lap" if you will. The cost is not expected to be as much as it could have been through an agency. So miracles do happen and I'll be praying one does for you as well!
