One thing that I regularly obsess about is infertility. It is amazing that at one time I never even thought about it, and now there isn’t a day that goes that I don’t think about it or research it in some way. I don’t really discuss it too much in my day to day life with others. Our families are aware of our fertility struggles, and a few of our close friends, but other than that I don’t really talk about it. So, I venture into social media to follow others sharing the same experiences. However, I don’t share my own fertility struggles on social media (yet) other than this blog. I almost feel guilty that I am not sharing my struggle there, but I just don’t think I am ready for everyone to know… I will probably be more comfortable sharing once I become pregnant.
One of the outlets that I really enjoy is YouTube. I would never have the guts to post videos of myself and my struggle, and my hubby would never be on board for that, but I admire those that do. The pure rawness makes them so relatable to me and it really does help me cope with some of the things I have difficulty with. I wanted to share a few of the YouTube channels that I follow.
