Taking a BReak from DS

Well friends, I have come to the decision that I need to take a break from the world of infertility for awhile.  My life has been overtaken it seems by thinking about babies, trying to have a baby, and having babies and pregnant people all around me.  I have also vowed to give up my Facebook page for awhile too- as on Sunday alone I learned of three people who announced their pregnancy and a past youth group member (she was a youth in my youth group when I was the Youth Pastor at my church during college) who just had baby number 3!  It seems like I am being swallowed up and need to take a break before I truly drive myself crazy.  The support I have gotten from everyone has been overwhelming on here, and I love and appreciate you all.  I will still periodically check in, but will admit that I won't be opening all of the email updates that I receive.  I am so happy for everyone who has gotten their BFP in the past few months, but am overwhelmed with feeling like it is never going to happen for me- just for everyone else.  I will be checking any messeges that are sent to me- but that will be it for awhile I think.   Wishing everyone the best! -Sarah

While I will be sorry to see you go for a while...I completely understand your reasons for needing a break. I found myself taking many breaks over the past few years...it becomes easy to \"lose\" yourself to infertility. Do what you need to do...spoil yourself...and love yourself! And when you decide to come back, know that we\'re here for you!

Dear Sarah, I have appreciated you immensely. Even though I will miss you, I understand your need to take a break. I will continue to keep you in my prayers. Everyday I pray that God will give you a child. Best wishes- Kara
