The Truth About Infertility

Click “Pardon My Disillusion” for my posts regarding my battle with infertility,
but remember… infertility isn’t pretty and it opens your “sharing”.
I rant, rave, and offer pissy commentary on our trials TTC #3… again and failing.
We’re currently on a possibly permanent break.
If you don’t like what I have written here-don’t bother commenting. 
This is my outlet when things drive me crazy and with infertility that’s a lot.
