In recognition of National Infertility Awarenss Week, I have been posting some facts and information as my status updates on Facebook. I've used statements about knowing what to say - or not to say - to someone dealing with IF. I also shared that just infertiles don't look a particular way; that we don't wear a tag that says, "Hi, I'm the Rambler and I'm Infertile."
For those of you battling IF, there are people out there who believe they can help you. I'm sure *they* think that their intentions are true, but they obviously need to STFU. For example:
"Did you know I read just recently that there is an increase of infertility due to what the hormones they inject into chickens and beef? I would recommend only things like Whole Foods who don't use that if you are having trouble. Just an FYI."
With that incredible insight. I will now blame the chickens and cows for my battle with IF. Obviously this person didn't read the part about what NOT to say . . .
