Im on the Struggle Bus and I can’t seem to get off!

Scroll down to content

Today has been a rough one, but that’s okay because I know all day’s won’t be good. I was supposed to go to a doctor’s appointment this afternoon but I’m really struggling, so I canceled the appointment last minute. I hate when I do that and it’s not fair to the doctor either. A goal of mine the past few months has been to work on not canceling appointments due to my up and down moods. You could say that I didn’t meet my goal today. I’ve been doing so well with this lately until today.

I only got two hours of sleep last night and I woke up in a sour mood. On top of it, the infertility issues that I have, have been weighing on me a lot since my birthday. When my birthday came around it hit me that I will never have my own biological child and it’s ripping my heart out. I’ve been going through the “mourning” process but the past few day’s have been rough. I’ve been crying a lot because I can’t hold back the tears anymore.

I also feel extremely lonely. My friends have their own families so I can’t see them that often. I was hanging out with one friend of mine once every other week but I think that is stopping too, which makes me sad. I really looked forward to seeing my friend because we had a really good time together. It was a good time to decompress and talk about anything. Everyone is busy in their own lives and I have my own “busy,” but its different. I really wish things were different. I always ask people how they are, how their day was, etc., but it would be nice to be asked how I am once in awhile.

I know life is hard and people are going through a lot more than me. However, to me, this matters. These things matter. Maybe tomorrow I will wake up in a better mood and have a fresher outlook on things. I hope I do. If not, I will keep going and work through my problems.

  1. Elizabeth, I wish you would call me sometime. Message me for the #. I’m a good listener if you want to talk.🙂

  2. I came here to thank you for your recent decision to follow Learning from Dogs. But I’m amazed by your openness, your honesty, at your condition that frankly I know very little about. However there’s one thing at least that you do really well: writing! I suspect there are others. Please be OK!
