I came sort-of-'out' on Face.book

I found the courage to post on face.book. I felt like I had to. Like I needed to. The more of us that are 'out', the more it will no longer be taboo.

I say that, but I posted a pretty innocuous statement:
Because 1 in 8 is someone you know:
 for National Infertility Awareness Week.

No one commented. Not that I expected them to. I just want it out there.

Having said that, I'm pretty proud of what I did. It's a beginning. But a good beginning. A great beginning.

I wish sometimes I had the courage of Stirrup Queens who is completely 'out'. She's making a mark. She's moving things forward. You guys have read about her trip to Capitol Hill this week? It's remarkable! I wish I could do that.

Maybe once I sort out my fears, inadequacies, pain, confusion... maybe then. But I don't think that ever goes away.

At least I hope my posting will let others know that they aren't alone if they are also going through this. And that they now have a resource two resources: me & Resolve. I hope I'm one step closer to breaking the taboo for others who just don't get it.

I think what I did was important for me. And for others.
