Did you know that this week is National Infertility Awareness Week? Check out Resolve.org for more info.
I blog about infertility. But my blog is anonymous. I would like it to be more public to raise more awareness but 1) I’m a teacher and I CANNOT have one of my high school students reading about my cervical mucus 2) I don’t want ALL of my facebook friends to know this much info about me.
But I do want to spread awareness. It’s quite a conundrum.
For now, I’ve started sharing my blog with a few select people in my real life and have told them to forward to their friends that they think would benefit from it.
I also did resolve’s blog prompt “Don’t forget…” You can see all of the blog posts on their site.
What will you do this week to spread awareness about infertility?

great post! I will do the same thing I did last year and post something about it on facebook for the week and ask others to do the same.
In my opinion one the things that helped me the most when dealing with fertility struggles is to know that you are not alone, that others are going through or have gone through the same thing.
Redbook also has a great series online that includes celebrity videos and testimonals – I believe it is called “the truth about trying”

I want to find that posting about “What not to say” to couples struggling with infertility and post it on Facebook for National Infertility Awareness week.

I’m lucky because ppl have been willing to share their private struggles. So, I’ll continue to put the word out to my friends, family and co-workers. I’m always disseminating info to anyone who is willing to listen.

I posted the Infertility Etiquette on my facebook. I have my profile set where “friends except acquaintances” can read my updates. So people that I don’t want all up in my business are set as acquaintances and therefore cannot read my updates!

Ooh, that’s a good idea. I’m not sure how I feel about posting on Facebook, but I have the same dilemma as MrsGreenGrass. I want to share my blog and struggles with infertility so that people become aware, but I definitely don’t want all of those details floating out in the public.
Resolve.org is wonderful though. I’m sure I’ll find something to post that doesn’t declare “I’m having lots of sex all the time every day!”

@lilybugg78: That’s a great idea! I’ll look into it.
