Just need to vent. I went to a "reveal party" to find out what my sister in law and my brother are having. There were 4 others at this party who were pregnant. Its been 8 years since I had my son and I've always wanted to have 1 more and it's not happened and although I am happy for them, it just rubs salt in the wound having to sit through all that. Just hurts seeing everyone else so happy and having babies with no problems. When all I want to make my life complete is just 1 more. Thanks for letting me vent.

Your other way of looking at it is to diminish someones emotions and feelings. I would never join a support group for women who lost their mothers and offer such "cutting" advice because I can never understand their feelings. By the way I work in health care and specifically for hospice so I have been specifically trained in grief counseling. That type of support where you diminish others feelings is specifically taught not to be done.
Perhaps you meant to be helpful. That is fine. However this my tragedy is worse then yours game needs to be done. The type of support you aim to provide is unneeded here. Tyvm.

LOL, Dixie, I was just looking for the "Like" button for your post, like on Facebook.  Duh!  I'm glad she says she won't post here any more.  I do hope the orinal poster has found some support for her situation, as I think she's probably not bothered to come back here after the original unpleasant and unhelpful response to her post.

I hope so too. Stuff like that burns me up. If its not a brilliant example of what NOT to say I dont know what is.
