- I'm not in this alone, and there's no way my husband would go for it.
- We haven't even told everyone in his family what we're truly experiencing.
- I don't want the ignorant comments that I'm sure I will get.
- I'm still not convinced that this is a cross I need to carry publicly. It's one thing to let close friends and family (even coworkers) know that you are dealing with infertility, but to blab it to people I haven't really talked to since grade school seems like too much for me.
I certainly feel called to be an advocate for NFP and want others to know that infertility is real and affects so many couples, but I'm just not there yet. Maybe someday I'll be ready to tell my story in a public way, but certainly not right now. I guess this blog is the closest I will get to that for a while.
How about you? How "public" are you with your infertility story? Where are your boundaries? Do we have a responsibility to be public with our stories?
