Have you guys seen this?
It’s a post about infertility from the man’s perspective. I just cried my way through it. We spend so much time focusing on whats happening to us, the women. After all we’re usually the ones getting the shots, the blood draws, the dildocam – we’re the ones with our legs spread on the table so that a bunch of strangers can examine us and give us bad news. Sometimes our partners get left behind. And they are suffering too, just maybe more quietly or in different ways.
Anyway, this is worth a read.
It’s both encouraging and saddening to read that this went viral. Encouraging because the candour and detail is refreshing and much needed to fill a long and tragic void. Saddening because it illustrates just how rare this candour and detail from the male partner’s perspective truly is. Thank you for sharing; I hadn’t seen it yet.
As usual, you sum it up precisely and concisely.
