A Letter To Infertile Women

Finding out your infertile can make or break you.

A Letter To Infertile Women

I am dedicating this article to all the infertile women in the world.

Though we may never meet each other, we share something special.

To the next infertile woman,

Welcome to the family! You may have just received the news that you are infertile and you don't exactly know how to process it. Your head is spinning. You may be feeling sick from realizing your body won't be capable of bearing a child. Take a deep breath, you'll get through it.

I am here to let you know that you will survive this. Yes, at first it feels like your entire world is crumbling down, that you will never fulfill your duty as a woman because you can't get pregnant and that no one will ever love you. Think again.

There are hundreds of thousands of women that love you and know exactly how you feel, including myself.

I know that you feel miserable knowing that you will never experience the anxiety of peeing on a pregnancy test, planning your baby shower or delivering a baby. You have to remember this is something you had no control over.

You feel less of a woman. You begin to feel powerless, likes there's no point to living but there is... you have to live for yourself.

Finding out that you're infertile can really mess up your life; I want you to start a journal and keep track of your thoughts because one can go insane if they keep the emotions bottled up inside.

Though knowing that you can't get pregnant becomes an obsession you think about 24/7, remember to keep your sanity.

Your desire to become pregnant is the only thing you will think of.

Don't let infertility take over your life.

You're thinking that you will never find a man who will love you because you can't give him a child. This, I wish I could say I have a straight answer, but the real answer lies within yourself. Let yourself open up to a man, don't scare him away. Open up and see how things go.

You're thinking if it's that hard to find a man, you'll never get married and your future mother-in-law will hate you.

Don't lose your faith in mankind.

You will be the envy of your friends. They will tell you how lucky you are to have all the unprotected sex you want without worrying about a pregnancy scare. Though they are partially right, there's more to unprotected sex. There are still diseases to be cautious about.

Your mom will try and cope with you and tell you she understands but the truth is she doesn't. She's had a child of her own, she has lived through motherhood and the thought of being an infertile woman cannot process through her head clearly.

You will receive rude comments like: Maybe you weren't meant to be a mom, Maybe you're meant to live a child-free life, you can always adopt, etc.

Don't let the comments get to you. You are worthy of living the best life you can ever have.

I ask that you never blame yourself for being infertile because you've done nothing wrong.

I know all of this because I was once in your shoes, and still am.

If you need someone to talk to, I am always here to share my love. We share something only you and I will ever comprehend.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
