bless you, dear Julie

Anyone who was at my house over the weekend would have witnessed me scowling repeatedly at this month's issue of People magazine. I picked it up in the check-out line on Friday evening because J-Ho was pimping out her new twins on the cover and I was just dying to see if she'd 'fess up to any infertility treatments. She didn't. Surprise, surprise.

I've found that infertility brings the gift of a gaydar-esque sensor for picking up others in like circumstances. While their strife may remain invisible to the untrained eye, we voluntary pincushions who haunt the waiting rooms of Reproductive Endocrinologists and are on a first name basis with the cryobank staff know better.

Anyway, I've had a scathing response to the article bouncing around in my head for a couple of days and, as luck would have it, Julie beat me to it, with her usual grace and eloquence. Check it out!

What did you think of M.A.'s statement about only having 12 tries a year? Oh, that article made me BITTER.
