I’m sure this will get better with time.
But it still hurts so much.
At a recent eye doctor appointment during my health history update, I was asked, “Is there any chance you could be pregnant?”
I teared up instantly with my reply, “Um, no.”
[Also, wondering what that has to do with my eyes.]
She replied, “I know that’s kind of a strange question here.”
I just told her that I’d recently had my ovaries removed.
She responded with so much compassion. She knew someone that had been through a heartbreak with IVF. We spoke about that a little bit and I shared how adoption isn’t all that easy either. People seem to just throw out adoption as the catch-all easy solution for everyone, but it’s not easy and it’s not for everyone.
I was really touched by her compassionate response.
And my poor little heart hurts.
