I’m over at Coffee+Crumbs today talking about what could be considered the prequel to last week’s Oils Can Save Us from the Zombie Apocalypse.

    This describes my visit to the pediatrician yesterday only we were on the “well” side, or as I like to call it “not yet infected side”. I am a crazy oiler, lol, which is what drew me to your webpage. What kept me is your amazing attitude. I just sat here and read all the infreakinfertility posts and sobbed along with you. I worked as a RN in a high risk labor and delivery unit for years and took care of patients like you all the time. I also worked with infertility patients, was an infertility patient and my husband is an REI. I could feel myself hugging, comforting and reassuring my patients, crying over my miscarriages and experiencing the joy of every moment of my daughter. You have a gift, many gifts, and I am glad you share your gift of empathy and love through your writing. Thank you for putting it all out there, we all need to hear it. We are also thinking about adopting and I am sure I will be coming back here for comfort and encouragement many times.
