My best friend is the opposite of me - she is too fertile. The type of woman who has 2 beautiful daughters who began as a whoops. Her marriage and life almost fell apart as a result, but she persevered and took care of her family before she considered herself. You would think that she would be the last one able to relate to all this, but instead she is the most understanding of any non-blogger I have talked to.
She has had a lot of struggles in her own life, but when she calls and asks "how are you" she sincerely wants to know, and she listens to the real answer. I don't have to put on a happy face, she justifies my feelings and offers condolence and support. A good friend is hard to find right now, and while she will never experience this problem, she takes on the burden of some of my pain.
I am lucky. She made me smile for the first time in days. The bounce backs get harder each time, but its nice to know I have help from an unlikely source.
Thank you for all your support in the blogosphere. I will feel better soon - I'm climbing out of the valley.
