Friendship

When I was out to lunch today with Miss Ohkay we got talking about how we started blogging & how we ended up on Twitter....always interesting to hear others stories & brought them to this route!

But then we got talking about what amazing friendships this has all brought us.

2 years ago (wow!) when I started on Twitter & then blogging shortly after, I never knew how it would change my life. When I started all this, it was strictly for me. I needed a place to vent & get out what I didn't feel those around me would understand. I was the only one out of all my friends & family dealing with infertility & I just needed somebody to "listen" that understood & 'got it.'

I would have never dreamt that all this would turn into so much more. Not only did I find people that would listen & understand. I found some of the most amazing women (& a few men) that have completely changed my life.

I remember Dr. Phonebook telling me to join a support group after the DH's azoo diagnoses & I told him I didn't think I needed one, I thought I had found out on line...little did I know!

Some of my closest friends are you lovely bloggers & twitter gals. I am so lucky that the internet is here for this journey & was able to bring some strong, courageous, amazing people into my life.

I never thought this is were my blogging & tweeting would land me....but man am I glad!

  1. It is crazy how we have formed our own little support group....and how we are all close. I blogged recently about "real" friends and "fake" friends....You all are the best "Fake" friends a girl could ever hope for.

    I LOVE YOU!!!

  2. And you have to idea how grateful I am that blogging and tweeting has brought you into my life. You've been an incredibly wonderful friend to me, and I don't know how I could ever truly thank you for that!

  3. Yes, after a devastating letdown in early January, I deleted a lot of my infertile friends in twitter (only to add them all back in a week). I thought that was making it worse...maybe it was at the time. But I realized that it's a great support network to have...invaluable! We get it!

  4. I agree with this post so much! I seriously started blogging just as my own personal way of venting. In just over a year I've made online friends that I've met in RL and have gained such a phenomenal support group online that it blows my mind!

    I'm still on for that cruise ship with cheez-its and drinks btw. :)

  6. Agreed. BB (before blogging) I thought that the Blogosphere was full of narcissistic types, or scream on the soapbox types. And there are fair amount of those, but the IF and adoption communities are a world apart. They have been THE biggest source of support and information I've had along this journey. It's truly amazing.
