Response to Did I word my post badly?
I think the fact that this post was by an "anon" poster, I immediately wondered if it was supposed to be confrontational. If she had posted her name, I would have known where she was "coming from" and I would have known better how to reply. Knowing that it was a regular poster who just didn't comprehend my post or didn't spend enough time reading all the way through, I would have just said, "You misunderstood my post. Here is what I was saying . . . ." Initially, after typing an angry response thinking it was a confrontational, attention-seeking poster, I actually backed off and posted based on assuming that the "anon" was someone who didn't really comprehend my post. I was still so upset at that point that I really didn't express myself the way I wish I had.
I've been on the boards for a very long time - probably longer than I should have, given how hopeless my own situation is now and given that I'm hardly the poster girl for the hope that I try and instill in others. I've been here so long that I've seen the gamut of stories - from the truly dire case of the 27 year old whose FSH was 130 (and who had stopped ovulating at 22) to the 43-year old with an FSH of 39.6 who got pregnant with TI and a minimal amount of meds on a monitored cycle with Dr. Check. I try and strike a balance between being a "Pollyanna" and a "DebbieDowner" and try and give hope where I think there is some. Frankly, I'm so seriously depressed knowing there truly is virtually no chance to conceive my OE baby with my own horrible stats, that I should just move on. But, I've had a hard time weaning myself off the boards knowing that although what I've learned (and am still learning) from my many years on the boards was too late to help me, it might just help someone else beat the odds given to her by her RE. But after sitting at my computer crying trying to explain myself to a poster who didn't identify herself and who should probably have been just ignored, I realized that I probably need to force myself to step away from the boards for a while and grieve my own losses and figure out how to move on with my life without any bio children.
