You're too Open

This is something I was told a couple of days ago about my blog. Well, first, this is my blog and you don't have to read it. Second, this is a history of my personal life and what is happening in it. Infertility is such a huge part of my life right now and I have decided to share my experiences with whoever wants to read about them. I hope to be able to touch someone's life the way others have touched mine. I want to spread the word about infertility; that it is a disease and that it is more common than we realize. 6.1 million couples in the United States deal with infertility in some form. So why is it that our culture keeps this on the down low? Our manhood/womanhood is not measured by what is or isn't going on in our reproductive track. Why are we so scared to talk about these types of troubles. If I had been more open two years ago, then I might already have a baby. I waited way too long before going to the doctor about our problems and there wasn't a good reason to wait. There is nothing to be ashamed of and we need to be proactive about Infertility.

Wear to make aware.

Who said you were too open. I'll go find them. I thought this country had moved passed the "taboos" of talking about these things. This is real...this is happening all around us. How we choose to deal with it is our business and you're right-don't read the blog if you don't want to know. This blog is a wonderful things and I hope you don't let other people's opinions hinder you. BLOG ON!!!!

Where do you get the awareness braclets? I would wear one if I knew where to get one.

Is that your hand? if so, where is your wedding ring. Hmmm, I think I would want people to be aware of the fact that I am married before much else.

Family of N, I made the awareness bracelet and I had taken off my rings because I took this picture right before I went to bed. Plus, my rings are too big now so I don't wear them when I am at home.
