I spend A LOT on the infertility chat boards. Probably too much at times. I can't help it. I am somewhat addicted to the stories of inspiration woman battling the same "disease" as me. I often find my own strength from the others and I am so thankful for that. Not only do I find friendship, but information as well. Today I stumbled upon an article that reassured me in my decision to be of the "Tell Camp".
A. and I decided that once we entered this path of ED that we would want to tell our child(ren) as we are not ashamed and feel honoured that we are/were given this amazing opportunity. Yes, I am petrified about the logistics of telling and how I will react, the child will react and how others may react, but in the end, we both feel it is the right thing for us. We are comfortable with our decision and it was not made lightly. We spent many hours reading, talking and counselling to reach this decision.
This morning while reading this article I felt a calm fall over me as I realized I had thought of the many possible scenarios mentioned and feel even more confident in our choice. I am so thankful for the information I have been given and can only hope to do the same for others.
