Your man is hurting too!


My husband and I have been TTC for 6months now. I have PCOS and he had testicular cancer 4 years ago. Well this month when AF came I became depressed and shut him out. I closed the door and laid in bed, blaming God, blaming myself etc. I was selfish, I was naïve.. He came in and he wanted a hug but I didn’t want to be touched. I didn’t want to be comforted, I wanted to wallow in my self pity and loathing. He became upset and said to me “You’re not the only one trying to have a baby! You’re not the only one who’s hurting today”

How naive was I to think he was completely unaffected? I never even considered he could be hurting too. And how he must have felt standing over the toilet, to look down and see the tampon wrapped in the trash. I didn’t even consult him I didn’t even consider his feelings. 😔

So ladies, remember, you and your loved one are in this TOGETHER. Go to them, love them through it. Give them that hug, tell them you love them! You are NEVER alone in your journey!!
