There are a couple of women who I'm acquainted with IRL who are also struggling with infertility. One I've known about for some time now, and another I just recently "found out" about. Both are wives of hubs' friends, and I know only a few details about their situations.
(I know, I should think of them as "my friends" too, but I just can't. I never hang out with them unless it's a group function or party. Hubs has a BIG, tight-knit group of friends, and although several of the wives have gotten to be really good friends with each other, well, I haven't.
But back to the point.)
Is it weird that I wish I could forge some kind of IF connection with these two women? I'm always wondering how they're doing, if there are any updates, etc. I guess maybe I'm used to the comfortable bond that all the We.bmd ladies have, that we're all about sharing every gory detail of every facet of TTC.
Okay, maybe I don't necessarily need to be THAT close to these two, but I feel like we have this commonality and it's a shame that we don't support each other, or share with each other at all for that matter. I don't know about them, but I know I don't get a whole ton of understanding from most people. It would just be nice to have someone to talk to IRL who "gets it" as much as my fabulous internet pals do.
I would try to bring it up, but I don't want to ask about them and risk making them uncomfortable, and I also don't want to be "that weird chick" who ends up spilling random personal tidbits to people I'm not that close with.
Sigh... Just another way infertility sucks I guess!
