One of the most valuable aspects of this blog is the compassionate commenting and conversations that take place within. Do be sure to read and participate. This is above all a safe place for those — many of whom arrive from an emotionally fragile place — to find understanding and a path forward.
You only have to watch this video I created Infertility’s Emotional Impact (now some five years ago) to fully appreciate how far down the road I’ve come. The multimedia project was an attempt to express emotions that had haunted me for far too long. Through exploring and expressing some unexpected emotions in the wake of failed fertility treatments, you’ll see an evolution both on this blog (and in the guest posts), as well as the Coming2Terms blog content and related comments.
On this tab you’ll see links to pieces I wrote for other publications and blogs including a small video in made for the International Infertility Film Festival in 2007. You’ll find links to my contributions to the Seleni House as well as a by-lined post for The New York Times Motherlode blog on Mother’s Day weekend in 2010, and a guest post most recently in Bloggers for Hope. They are evidence that the darkness that surrounds us as we initially come to terms with the finality of infertility does indeed lift and new light and purpose finds us and carries us forward.
