Another day..

Well here we are, a new week, a  new day.. yet I still feel the same as I did last week, yesterday.  Yesterday was really rough, you see some people in my family like to brag about things, like how much money they make or what they will get back at income tax season, how big their engagement ring is, things of that nature.  Well I have been so emotional when one of these people said how much they were going to be getting back, I just burst into tears!  With that kind of money I could have easily paid for a cycle of IVF and still had some left over. But that just seems to be another thing that those fortunate enough to have kids, reap the rewards of.  It's not the money I even care about, it's how easily it's coming to them when those of us who don't have children, are out here working our asses off in order to come up with the money to just "try" and have children.  I write to my State Representative(big jerk that he is) every time I get a chance about making insurance companies cover things of this nature, and you know one time I even got a letter back from him explaining that his sister to had to go through IVF in order to have children and was successful. But he doesn't support this. Umm, what??? Although, they are more fortunate and had the money to go forward with everything, I still find it very hard to believe how you can be that close to someone experiencing this and not support helping other with it?  Mind boggling .. thats all I can say.   I mean do you seriously not have a heart at all?  I mean when will people stop and pay attention? Educate yourselves on this before you automatically decide you will not support the bill to cover ivf and infertilty, instead of thinking Oh NO, it will cost me so much more blah, blah, blah.  Actually if a company of average size would make this coverage available, each persons cost of insurance would go up a little over $1.00 a month! Is that so much to ask, hell not to me.. uuggghhh just so FRUSTRATED with the way this government works!


  1. Hi there, I'm sorry you're experiencing such frustration. It's so not fair that this costs so much and that something that should be available to everyone comes down to money. Hugs.

  2. Ugh, I don't understand bragging like that. The financial side of infertility is insanity. It's unfair, conceiving shouldn't be considered a luxury!

  3. I will never understand how so many people can justify not wanting infertility to be part of insurance coverage. Never.

  4. aww thx runnyyolk! :)

    @WaitingVicky, I totally agree! It should not be a luxury!

    @C.Sue, I don't get it either if they would just take a few minutes and look into it to see that NO it's not going to cost any more then insurance already does! It's extremely frustrating to me! I am constantly writing my state representative and senators!
