It’s a very sad thing how isolated you can become when going through problems ttc or infertility. Within my circle of my friends I have found sources of comfort, stress, despair, support and hurt in equal measures. After sharing my deepest darkest secrets with my closest friends since childhood, I never thought I’d come across anything that would be so hard to talk to them about. I was wrong! This was it!
After realising that my “real” friends weren’t going to help me on this journey I turned to the internet and I will never look back! I started following blogs and making the occasional comment, then started my own blog and signed up to Twitter. I was initially never a fan of Twitter, but boy have I changed. I love it. I am (almost) constantly signed in. Without Twitter and people sharing their stories on blogs I would have gone insane by now (and I’ve come close, believe me).
I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone I’m following and to everyone who follows me. You helped me through my second miscarriage, with all your kind words and comments. You share your thoughts on my posts, so I know I’m not alone in what I’m thinking and blogging about. I share your BFPs, miracle babies, despair and sorrow.
I know I’m not very “vocal” on Twitter, but I get so much from knowing you are there on my computer, tablet or even in my pocket on my phone. You are a fantastic support network and I don’t feel alone anymore. I have never met any of you, but you truly are virtual friends.
Thank you! Thank you so much!!
