no. 305 – Bitter Pill

Have you noticed my new picture over there on the right? The infertility pill? A bitter pill indeed.

Tonight as I choked (literally) on my prenatal and folic acid and baby aspirin, I thought to myself, "why bother?".

Why do any of us "bother"?

  6. Oh, sweetie. Come here. You need a hug.

  7. Oh DD. It makes me sad to hear the hopelessness in your post. I am still holding out for a miracle here. Big hugs from Japan.

  8. I think we bother because the pill is less bitter than the disease that otherwise afflicts us.

  9. I just posted an entry about why I bother. I can’t imagine not having those moments.

    I wish there were some way for you to know now what was happening.

  10. Oh, sweetie, I’m so so sorry. It is a bitter pill.

  11. I did notice that and made my husband come to the computer to get a laugh. I guess that is the only pill I am good at taking since I am so bad about taking my prenatals and was horrible about taking the doxycycline for this recent ER. I hope you are doing o.k.

  12. I’ve always been terrible at swallowing. Just ask my husband.

  13. Oh, Casey is my new girlfriend.

  14. Because, like it or not, hope springs eternal (on some level or another.)

    Hang in there.

  15. Yes, I saw the pill and went to the website the other day. Great stuff there; I had so many ideas. There’s enough variety that you can change it when you feel better.

  16. Faith

  17. I know you can’t feel it from there but I’m giving you the biggest hug ever.

    Why do we do it? Because sometimes after many, many losses we get a miracle. I’m still hoping for you.

  18. I feel ya! I used to choke on birth-control pills.

    Chin up DD, hope springs eternal.

    (((hugs)))

  19. I have the most sensitive gag reflex ever. The other night I was taking my pills and ended up puking in the sink. As I watched all of my pills go down the drain, I thought, “There’s at least $8 worth of pills in there.”

    Fucking infertility.

  20. It is hard not to ask ourselves this question, “Why bother?” when we face setback after setback after setback. Even the most eternal optimists.
