Badges of Belonging

We all have a chip or two on our shoulder.  It seems in the infertilty world that chip is also your sad badge of honour.

For every IVF cycle you have had, someone has had at least one more.  For all your cysts and surgeries, someone has had worse news and more surgeries.  It isn’t a competition, but sometimes it feels like it it is all you have.  All that defines you.  It’s not like we have pictures of our kiddies at dance recitals anyway.
