I will start IVF in January or February, depending on how my Nov. 21st Endometriosis surgery goes. My problem is that my Mom is not being very supportive. She tried IVF once, 30 years ago (when IVF was very new) and it did not work. She and my Dad adopted my brother and me after years of trying to get pregnant. She still has issues with never being able to get pregnant. I think that deep down inside, she does not want me to get pregnant. Every time I talk about how excited I am to begin IVF, she becomes very pessimistic, and says something like we do not know that it will work, do not get your hopes up. Or we dont have a baby yet, and we may not ever. She tells people that she probably wont have a Grandbaby. After two years of trying to get pregnant, and seven years of Endometriosis, I feel like I am entitled to get excited about IVF. I know that it may not work, but if I do not have a positive out look, or I go into it thinking that it will not work, then it probably wont. I think that a positive outlook is very important when you are going through IVF. I am really starting to resent my Mothers negative outlook. My Mother in Law is over the moon with excitement, she just knows that one of the IVF cycles will work. It is just so frustrating that my own Mother is not excited for me. I really feel like I need to be positive about the IVF and I need to be around positive supportive people, and I think that this should be a happy time, not a negative time. What should I do, should I confront her about her negative attitude? Should I stop talking to her about the IVF, and only talk to my Mother in Law about it? Does anyone else have this problem? Thanks.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
