Last night was the first meeting of a newly forming Resolve support group on our side of the Valley. Unfortunately, it was also the first major monsoon storm of the season to come through here. Brian didn't even want me to go as it was going to be about a 35 minute drive. However, I had really been looking forward to it and had myself all talked into going. So, I went and really didn't have any trouble with the storm, though it put on quite a show.
Having said all this, it seems as though some gals might have had a little more sense than me and stayed out of the storm. The meeting consisted of just me and the leader! What an easy way to ease into a support group! I was very encouraged to hear her story. She has seriously been through it all and has made it through to the other side, eventually building her family in three very different ways.
She also had lots of really good advice about how to take things step by step and how not to get too overwhelmed. She also raved about the doctor I see, even though he was not her doctor, so that made me feel really good. Most importantly, she told me that absolutely everyone she knows who has gone through infertility has come out the other side of it with kids, one way or another. That was really good to hear. This will be over one day. She also encouraged me to actually call and go to a follow up appointment with my RE to get the "now what" questions answered. At least that way I won't have to worry about what he might or might not say.
Listening to her sort of humbled me too. It makes my year and a half struggle look like a walk in the park.
So, I have an appointment scheduled with my RE for first thing tomorrow morning. I'm sort of looking forward to what he has to say, and I hope to have some of my worries settled down.
