I LOVE LOVE LOVE getting the emails with her new blogs! I'm not exactly in the same boat as notsomommy, but there are still a lot of things I can learn, and the experiences she's had help me to be a ...better person as well. I'm really enjoying getting to read these. See More

Focusing on the advantages of not having kids became my ladder and helped me climb out of a pit of despair when I was at my lowest. Maybe this list of benefits will help someone else who is trying to accept his/her childless life, I thought. So, here's to the bright side of infertility...

While some may think me selfish for being happy that I don't have kids and can sleep in, I am simply choosing the bright side of infertility...

We childless not by choice understand the storm... But I love that we get to decide what happens after the storm... How are you putting yourself back together again?

As these negative thoughts were flying through my mind, another student in the class looked at me and said, “You are one strong lady.” I shook my head and stated, “I don’t know about that.” She countered, “You are.”

As I left class, I started thinking… Why do we have such a hard time accepting compliments? Why do we focus on our flaws so easily?

I was diagnosed with endometriosis at age 29 and only because I saw an infertility specialist. My ob-gyn never even mentioned the possibility of this chronic illness.

Whether you have endo or not, we should all educate ourselves about this disease so that the younger generation does not have to suffer in silence...

This video is far from perfect. The lighting caused some glare and shadows, the song (which I'm singing) was recorded at our 10 year anniversary celebration so you can hear family in the background, and the photos are simple snapshots. But life isn't perfect. So, I'm sharing this imperfectly perfect video of our snug. Hope you enjoy the tour...

When I was little, I loved colors, which is what I called crayons. To this day, I love colors because they evoke sweet memories, profound emotions, deep meaning. Yes, the colors of this imperfectly perfect life are definitely a good thing…

The pain associated with endometriosis is very real. The amount of pain does not always correlate with the severity of the disease, however. Please, do not put off going to the doctor because you think your pain is minimal. Get properly diagnosed so that you have all the facts you need to help properly manage this chronic illness.

This list of endometriosis symptoms is not exhaustive, but these are the symptoms that I most commonly suffer with. We need to find better answers than birth control (which I refuse to take because I already suffer with hormonal imbalances), surgery (the only way to properly diagnose endo), and pain pills. We need a cure.

Recently, I read a blog at Life Without Baby, which asked, "What do you wish you'd known about a life without children?" (You can read it here - )

It got me to wondering... What advice would you give someone who is facing a childless not by choice life?

I know that many of us here are pet parents, whose fur babies are family. Like me, I am certain none of us would ever want our four-legged kiddos to be put in harm's way. Please, click on the link to read the article about the horrible incident that happened on United Airlines recently and consider signing the petition to ensure such a tragedy does not happen again.…/dog-dies-after-united-ai…/

Unfortunately, this isn't United's first animal tragedy. Something is wrong and United needs to do more than just investigate. (104311 signatures on petition)
