Happy NIAW

Happy Nation Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW) to all. NIAW runs from 04/25/09 - 05/02/09. I forgot about it until last night. You know why...I have not heard one story about it on the news. It seems to me like it will pass just like any old week in the year. No media attention, no "walk" for a cure, no fundraising...at least none that I know of...

All there seems to be is us. We won't let it pass without a word. We won't pretend IF isn't a "real" problem. We will try to educate and spread the word just like we do everyday. We know the pain! We know it's real! and we wish NO ONE ELSE HAD TO EXPERIENCE IT!

I thank all of my bloggers...no I mean all my friends! You have made things feel not so lonely. You offer unconditional support. You are an inspiration!

If you would like more information you can also go to the RESOLVE website. They too have some great information.

Here are some myths and facts regarding IF.

and here is some ifo about taking charge of your fertility.

I hope you all have a GREAT week!
