My husband just wrote and said he's worried that you readers will read my recent blog posts and think I'm having a nervous breakdown. I'm not. Not really, at least.
I'd like to think I'm faring as well or better than the average person who deals with two years of infertility and miscarriages and the 50% chance of impending death for her current baby, all by herself while her husband repeatedly fights in war.
I'd say out of all the people in the world who are doing that right now, I am definitely near the top of the list of not having a nervous breakdown.
Even if you DID
have a nervous breakdown I can't imagine anyone who is more entitled to it. Well, maybe, one person I know online has a child who is terminal with cancer, but that's the only other thing bigger. I'm not even going to tell you to be strong, hang in there, etc. because you have done that admirably well. So just keep on doing what you are doing, I'm glad I am not in your shoes and I wish you were not in them either. Yeah, I'm a crazy ole lady

Your husband is very sweet to worry about you like that. For your fellow bloggers (and Your Worrier in Chief over here), we understand you need to run through the scenarios and 'talk it all out' at your blog.
I have been praying for you and about you & all that good stuff each day. Your boyfriend also sends his best--he asks about you each time he e-mails.

For whatever it's worth I think you sound fine.

It never occurred to me that you could be having a nervous breakdown. This is certainly not a pleasant time, to say the least. But the bus has taken some worse turns before, and you've somehow made it this far. Although I don't know where the bus will take you tomorrow, I can only hope for the best.
One thing's for sure: your Worrier-in-Chief will be looking out for you. And the 300
will be behind her.

I hope Russ understands that this is your liver...cleansing etc. It was sweet he was worried we all might think you are a nut case. In that case we all are

One more thing... you would be crazy not to be worried. Alfred E. Newman comes to mind. What? Me worry?

As a fellow-traveller (infertility-wise, my husband is a civilian), I think you sound remarkably sane. You must have some optimism for the future, because in order to have a second child, you have to have a first one. You are right on to get the CVS test and I only hope that the results are not only positive, but that they are delivered to you quickly and with some celebratory chocolate or fried chicken, whichever sounds better to your uneasy stomach. Milkshakes were my thing. Do they have Sonic where you're at? Banana Cream Pie Milkshake--awesome!

Nope, didn't think you were having a nervous breakdown at all--just sounded like you're riding a very bumpy road with a lot of quite-reasonable baggage. And you're doing an amazingly good job of it.
