It's late and I really shouldn't be doing this right now.  But I really needed to get something off my chest.  When people think of IVF now, this is what they are going to think of.  

I have reached the point now where I am OK with doing IVF.  I was a result of fertility drug.  Never once have I every questioned whether or not I should be here.  My Mother did what she needed to do, albeit not as drastic as what I'm having to do, but still necessary.  For this women to cause other people to now look at me differently because of my choice, makes me sick.  Before, people were just uninformed by what was entailed in the process.  Now they are still uninformed, but they have this wacko's story to back-up their own misconceptions.  

I start the drugs tomorrow to begin my second IVF cycle.  We are using my own frozen oocytes this time, so the process will be a little easier on me, but we have less of a chance of it working.  I'm trying to take it one day at a time, but stories like this are making it almost impossible.
