Is it bad that I feel like not all infertiles are equal? We all have had our struggles, but some less than others. A "friend" from my past found out that she needed to do IVF because of male infertility issues. I hasn't talked to her in years, and when she found out she needed it, she called me with questions/advice. I love talking about our journey and sharing the information that I have learned. I'm sure its tough to go into IVF not knowing anything about the process- its scary!
Anyways, we talked briefly and then she came over to meet the kids, chat, etc. Mind you, we have been living in the same town for a couple years and hadn't connected previously. She asked questions, etc. and went on her merry way. She told me that she just wanted to be pregnant like yesterday (didn't we all when we started treatment) and didn't care about the cost because that wasn't an issue. They got their testing done and within a month's time she started her cycle and was successful. She gave me a couple of updates and then that was it. She didn't need my advice anymore and probably never really did in the first place. I feel so used!
