My Birthday

Today is my birthday....last year when I discovered that it fell at the same time as NIAW I was heartbroken.
I wanted a break from what I carry as the darkest part of my heart.
I realize now that it is not a curse, but a scar, a story.

I am a Barren woman
I have been to dark dark places, I have felt sadness with no end
I have cried to the point of dehydration
I have been lost
and I am still alive.

All the best on your special day. Hope you can celebrate your SELF, not the 'I' word part of your life

Hi from ICLW. Happy belated birthday! You show great strength in your words and that is admirable. Hopefully this will be your last birthday living with infertility.
