Someone Like Me

In keeping with Operation Smile I've kept myself pretty busy each weekend. I need the distraction. This past weekend I was lucky enough to attend a financial advising seminar by Bill and Giuliana Rancic. For those of you who may not know them Bill is the season one winner of the Apprentice and Giuliana is an E news anchor and they both star in their own reality show Guiliana and Bill. They are struggling with IF and have had IVF and a miscarriage all shared through their reality show.

I experienced something very special with Giuliana this weekend. She's the first person I've met that I can relate on this level - someone just like me. I told her I was right there with her in her suffering and she was sad to hear we were going through it too. Her words were encouraging and we hugged twice. The hug was such a bond, such a silent exchange of "I know how you feel, and it sucks!"

It was pretty amazing. It felt great to meet someone that new exactly what I'm going through, knows the emotions I experience and truly just understood the me today. This just made me realize what a bond we all share. It's an unfortunate one but it's there. No one understands us like we understand each other. What would we be with out each other, how could we cope with all of this.

I'm thankful for those of you out there who read my blog and leave your comments. I'm also thankful for you for sharing your story too. It takes a lot to open up about this and expose ourselves, but what I've gained in return is priceless. You are the way I cope and you are the reason I can get through this and keep semi sane.

Thank you!
