I've got to say thanks for all the support Christie and I have gotten since we opened up about the whole infertility thing. We're hardly unique in what we're going through, but it's not something anyone talks about, so nobody gets any support. Yes, there are support groups, but by talking about it openly, we've found our own support group from within our friends and family. So thanks.

Also, I realize somewhat belatedly that my crack about old magazines in the doctor's office might be construed as a complaint. Not true. See, as near as I can figure it, for middle-aged men, pornography is more about nostalgia than actual lust. Looking at the young girls in Playboy isn't about sleeping with 20 year old girls, it's really about being 20 years old ourselves. And Playboys from the early 90s are therefore much better than new ones.

Okay - is this Mike from Kirksville?? I just made that connection!!! It's me, Lissa from http://mitchellfamilyhome.blogspot.com/...you've commented on my blog before and I think I just now figured out where I know you from! (I hope that's right at least. LOL.)

Yup. Though it's a bit disturbing that it's a Playboy post that helped you make the connection. Not sure what that says about me...

Mike,

I says nothing about you. . . everything about Kirksville.
