Is this a cruel joke?

I'm insanely emotional, all hocked up on Clomid, feeling like my ovaries are going to explode and what happened? Oh, yeah. I opened the mailbox to find a hospital bill for my D&C along with a sample package of baby forumla!!!!!!! Whose idea of a cruel joke is this???

Thanks, Terri. I think it was a coincidence since the sample came from Enfamil, but nonetheless, it was terrible. I just want to throw it away, especially since I'd never use it anyway, but I hate to waste something that is perfectly good. Maybe I could donate it to somewhere? Any ideas?

OH my gosh! I really think you should call that hospital, find out who does their mailing, and let them have it. I think I'd be wound up enough to go down there in person. That is just awful! I can't believe it! Hey, you can blame the reaction on the drugs, and it will make you feel better in the long run, maybe.

That's how I feel sometimes... the day I got a BFN I received invites to two baby showers in the mail. It's horrible how ironically things can go. You can donate the sample to a local womens' shelter. They will usually take unopened items. Or a local teen parenting program at a high school.

Yes, I agree, let them have it!! Or maybe see this as a sign of an impending BFP!! Maybe somebody upstairs is telling you that you will need it soon! I will pray for you. Nevertheless, I would be mad too.

I'm sorry those items were in your mailbox. What a crappy addition to your day. I hope it gets better.
