Welcome to Pace of Mind! I created this page as an outlet. You see, I’m going through infertility treatments and it’s made me a little nutty. Rather than being in my own head, I’ve decided to write. I’ve always loved to write so I figured I’d put this crazy energy to some good use. That’s why I’m here – on these pages before you.
First thing I should tell you, I typically don’t share my quirky thoughts/feelings freely with strangers so this is really big for me. This is part of the fertility process I’m undergoing – realizing that I need to share. I feel weird writing this for the public even though the likelihood of people flocking to read this is slim. I created this site as my online diary to sort out the complexities of the fertility/infertility journey – mostly this serves as a way to practice my writing while at the same time releasing a mountain of emotions in creative way – let’s hope. Also, if anyone going through fertility struggles happens to come across this site, that would be TERRIFIC. I hope this helps in some way – in knowing that you are not alone and if we can laugh about it somehow, even better.
Here’s a little bit about me: I’ve always done things at my own pace – I’m also a little quirky but I don’t know that many people see it because I only show it to a selected few. I am married to a wonderful and loving man who is my best friend in the whole world. We have 3 doggies who we adore and one whose paw was lovingly tattooed on my back after we lost him.
The picture on this page was taken in Sorrento, Italy about six years ago. I love this place. I remember running around like a child playing peek-a-boo behind the beautiful, rustic columns while my husband gives me a loving smirk. Little did I realize that there were people inside the building holding a community course wondering what the woman in the beanie was doing. I didn’t care. I was just so elated to know that we had finally arrived in Italy and I was ready to explore. This childlike wonder and feeling of joy is the same feeling I want to bring to our fourth (?) IVF cycle whenever I can muster up the strength to win the the “battle of the hormones”. If you’re going through this process or have gone through it at some point, you may know what I’m talking about.
