So many revelations, therapeutic moments, tears shed, laughter spread, songs sung with the help of my Shrink! And by "shrink"... I mean my car! If I need to blow off some steam I take a ride in your car, turn the tunes up as loud as they can go, and sing until my lungs are depleted of all air!
I do see a fertility specialist, have a life coach along with supportive friends and family to help me through my journey with infertility... however, I'm just not quite sure how I'd survive this journey without my shrink.
I cried yesterday on the way home from my Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) and cried again on the way home from work this morning (only because I could!). I'm overwhelmed with where this journey has taken me... how many doctor's appointments are in my near future, the strain it will and has had on our financial situation, the people I'm still hiding this from and need to tell, the emotional roller coaster I experience each month where I start with hope, proceed with excitement, and end with frustration and disappointment. I must admit I'm feeling much better after my time with Shrink this morning. Maybe running a 5K on the treadmill afterwards also had something to do with it... but still... expressing your raw emotions and releasing the energy through a good cry is certainly quite helpful and therapeutic for me.
Now, go find yourself a good SHRINK! ;)
