Someone like me
This weekend P and I went to a work function (his) and I think I met another infertility patient. We didn't get into specifics, but I'm fairly sure that we've had the same experience with the same ClinicFromHell and its leader, Satan. She seemed to know exactly what I was talking about on several specific points, but neither of us gave up the whole truth. Her husband had a pinched, slightly agitated look on his face while we were talking and I felt bad for him. (Assuming my infertile-radar is accurate, of course,) I know IF can be a whole 'nother kind of hard for men. In a place with many kids (though thankfully, very few tiny children/babies) we huddled together in one corner. Of course, it could all be in my head and she's just a nice lady who's had bad doctor luck. Either way, it made me feel less lonely for one day, and that's something.
