Things Fall Apart


And by things, I mean me.  I got my period tonight.  It’s starting, anyway.  I will say at this point that while I never let myself admit it out loud, I was 100% sure this IUI worked.  I was as certain as you can be that I was pregnant.  Certain.  And then certain again.  I tried to talk myself out of it – but I couldn’t – I just felt certain.  I’m even having a hard time believing it now – and I am spotting.

I am at this conference, and there is a big dinner tonight.  I am on the senior team – this is a mandatory event for me.  But I just left.  I told one of my colleagues, who said she would try to deflect for me, and I left.  Which is good, because apparently the amount of time it took me to get back to my hotel room was the exact amount of time I had before disintegrating into a weeping, semi-hysterical disaster.  I am currently not at risk of vomiting, which is an improvement over 10 minutes ago.  And I am not hyperventilating.  Also an improvement.

I knew I was going to fall apart some if this was the outcome, but I guess I didn’t expect the complete breakdown that I seem to be having.  I am trying to focus myself a bit by writing, I would like to stop being hysterical.

This might be the first time that I am absolutely not sure if I can do this anymore.  We have 2 more frozen donated embryos, we’ll use them.  I’ll get out of this knee jerk hysteria, and come to my senses.  But, I don’t know.  I’m back to that fucking place where I don’t know how to keep going, but I don’t know how to stop either.

I want to go home.  I don’t want to have to hold it together for another day of this conference.  I don’t want to have to be in front of everyone tomorrow, biting back tears all day.  I don’t hide them well.  And this is not the time for me to slip up- I HAVE to be in control.

It’s hard to blog when my head is everywhere – I feel so disjointed.  But because I am sitting in this hotel room alone, it’s all there is.  This computer and crying and more crying.

  1. I’m also so sorry. It hurts me to go through this with you. 😦 You have every right to cry and fall apart as much as you need to.
