Getting Hopes Up To Be Let Down

Getting Hopes Up To Be Let Down - It Could Be Worse Blog - Mary Horsley

I really didn't want to talk about this, but I have to get the words out before they eat me up inside. Infertility is a pretty traumatizing thing to have to deal with. Month after month of getting your hopes up and being let down. It's a cycle of what-ifs leading to negative outcomes. Each … Continue reading Getting Hopes Up To Be Let Down

Remicade Infusion Day #4

After Saturday's post, Another MRI for Mary, my weekend went as per usual, filled with marinating on the couch, finishing homework, filling my pill case, and, writing for my blogs - yes, plural.  I can't believe it.  It is still quite nice to know that I am out there sharing on multiple outlets and bringing … Continue reading Remicade Infusion Day #4

The Week I Asked For Help

What has happened this week in my life?
