I feel more alone right now than I have at any other point in this journey. That's not to say I feel like no one cares. I thank all y'all that are still reading for expressing/showing that you care. But I feel like there's no one I can relate to.
I can't relate to the people who have had their dreams come true and become parents. I can't relate to the people who don't want kids because they're happy without them. But I also feel like I can't relate to the infertiles anymore. They're ALLOWED to try. Even if they're in a period where they can't afford to try, they're still allowed to if the money can be worked out. And if they've been told it's not possible at all, they can still try to get the money and the agencies together to try and adopt. But I don't even know if that's ever going to be allowed.
And so it's hard and I feel alone in a way that is completely different from ever before. I was going to ask for advice from one friend that I thought could relate, but now that friend is going to be a parent. What I want is advice from someone that still doesn't know if they'll ever be allowed to try.
