Does it ever get easier?

September 22, 2010 at 9:10 pm (Just wondering...)

This month, I started my Masters in Counselling. I had mixed feelings: I was excited to be one step closer to my goals/dreams but I was so nervous to see all new faces. The prof entered the room which housed about fourteen people (much more intimate than in my undergrad classes) and asked us each to introduce ourselves and tell her about our experience in counselling etc. I was overwhelmed by the educational/professional backgrounds of my peers. Most declared they were interested in working with children or adolescents. Some were interested in couples counseling and family therapy and some were interested in working with those battling addictions. When it came to my turn, I was nervous. I am no good at speaking in front of crowds but I stood and introduced myself and told them about my hometown and all those mundane details. But when I came to explain my professional interests, I struggled for the words. It is still pretty hard for me to speak about MRKH. I mean really, I don’t think there is anything more personal to me. I shared few details, explaining only that it was a congenital anomaly that affects female fertility and I did not say “Oh and by the way, I have been struggling with this for over eight years now” but I was calm and confident in my explanation. When I sat back down, I was so proud of myself (that I had managed to keep it together) and to top it off, my prof and my colleagues were really interested in what I had to say. I got several questions, none that I dreaded (like “how do you know about this?”) and on top of that I heard the the girl behind me whisper to her friend: “That sounds interesting.” It made me feel really good!

Meet other MRKH women?

September 19, 2010 at 10:09 pm (Housekeeping: General blog info)

I recieved this email from MRKH.org. If you are interested in attending/able  to attend, follow the link below:

I just want to remind you to sign up for the MRKH Gathering in Boston on Sunday October 31st.  Yep, Halloween.
There is a link at www.MRKH.org to register.  Come one, come all.
This is a different conference then the one at Children’s hospital on Saturday the 30th.  That conference is limited to women under 22.
The Sunday conference is not limited to age range, and we will decide what we want to discuss depending on what the attenders want to talk about.
The past Gatherings have been great.  We laugh, cry, eat and build connections from face to face fun time.  The event will be (in the same room) at Simmons College.
Hope to see you then.  Please forward to the other lists if so others can attend as well.

Dear readers,

Thanks again for your ongoing support! I am interested in how couples cope with fertility issues and have started to research this area quite a bit so I will be posting more research as well as thoughts in this field if you are interested.

Fertility issues affect both members of a couple so it is important to communicate.

Therapy with infertile heterosexual couples – its not about gender – or is it
