I'm okay

I just want to say thank you for the phone calls and personal emails in regards to yesterday's post. Honestly, I'm A-OK! I just needed to get that off my chest. This kind of stuff comes up about once a year now... where I don't deal with the mounting stressor, and it starts showing up in other things... obviously I know that it isn't the healthiest way to deal with things, but I am getting better about it. It was way worse before we adopted. I'm simply too busy now to let most things bother me!

Anyway, I'm back to my normal self now that I have identified and owned up to what was bothering me... and Daddio and I had a great talk yesterday about it... again he usually figures out what is wrong with me way sooner, his Llama sonor must be a little off with all of his travel this year!

Yesterday's post reminded me of a few things that maybe aren't talked about too often... how to talk with a friend who is suffering with infertility, and questions people ask adopted families. I am going to work on a post that hopefully sheds some light on some of the pit falls that a fertile woman might fall into when talking with an infertile woman... and not realize. And also there are so many inappropriate questions that I, among many other adoptive parents, have fielded by well meaning friends and strangers... watch for these, they will be both entertaining (I hope) and educational.

I'm glad you're feeling better today. Some times just being able to get it off your chest helps the most, kwim?

I'll be looking forward to reading your future post about talking with infertile couples and comments made to adoptive families.
