I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Thankful

On our way to see family and its shaping up to be a gorgeous day! My toes are pleased in their flip flops for the mid 70's today! I am thankful for so much this year... even though at times it doesn't feel like I have a lot to be thankful for. That couldn't be father from the truth, and I'm glad we have today to reflect on that!
We have an amazing set of friends and family. I have the best and most loving husband. We have good jobs, a wonderful home, and a crazy cat. We are truly blessed! We are parents to a beautiful angel son and hopeful for another chance at parenthood here on this earth.

I hope you find time today to feel thankful. I know the journey if infertility and Endo is a difficult one, but, be thankful today for something beautiful!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to you... obviously, living in the UK, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, but we do try to remember to be thankful even when times are tough.

Have a lovely holiday with your family xx
