The Speak Up and Speak Out Award



I have been nominated by the wonderful Jamied. Thank you. I decided a long time ago after trying for a couple years that I would not suffer in silence. I was going to let people know how much IF SUCKS!!!! I was sick of feeling alone and I think people need to be educated. We are not alone and that is one thing I have learned especially since starting my blog. I am sad and angry that so many have to be a part of this "club" but I am glad that all of you beautiful people are out there and I thank you for your support.

Read the full post here .
I am going to list a few of my favorite criteria here for being an angry infertile.
-If you talk in TTC acronyms nobody except people on the internet understand
-If you know what a cootercam is
- If you have ever heard "just relax" or "it's not your time" or "it's God's will"
- If you've ever told anyone you are infertile and they're response was, "That sucks. I'm super fertile! I can have all the kids I want!"

Check out the rest of the post for the entire list. It's sad that I can relate to every one of them.
Rules for posting award:

1. Link back to this post so that others will read the original story behind the award
2. Nominate 4 others who have not been "silent about their infertility"
3. Enjoy speaking out and speaking up :D

I nominate:

Broken Bits
Knocked Up, Knocked Down
The Great Big IF
An Unwanted Path
