***Stepping down as co-cl :( :( :(***

I have been wrestling with this a while now but I need to step down as co-cl of TTCAM.

After almost 5 years and 2 losses, I have to come to terms with the fact that this will probably never happen for me and do really be able to do that, I think I need to walk away.

I feel like reading about CD's, OPK's, m/c, BFP's and the like every day, feeds my insanity when I am trying desperately trying to find out how to live my life NOT trying to get pregnant. TTCAM helped me come out of what was easily the darkest year of my life. It was there for me during a time in my life when I needed empathy and understanding so badly from people who knew what I was feeling

Hey Chelle,
I totally understand. I am just a lurker here, but I know you have to do what is best for you and your sanity.

Love you too!!!

Hey Chelle...

I am also very proud of you for taking this step. I know it's one you didn't come to lightly. You have helped so many of the sistahs here with your insight, intelligence, wit and humor. You have cheered people on, you have been a voice of reason- and a grounding force when needed.

I truly, truly wish a little miracle for you. I hope you know how much I've come to love, admire and respect you as a FRIEND in addition to being a "sistah" on the board.

Take care of you. Love your daughter. Spend time with your DH. And do whatever you need to do to find that peace to keep Zen Michelle going. Much,much love and (((HUGS))).

(((Chelle))) I can completely understand where you're coming from. In fact, I'm only just seeing this now two+ days later because I haven't felt like I can be here every day. I hate that you are going through all of this right now, though. But, you know I know how you're feeling. (((HUGS)))

You've been a great co-cl, Michelle. And you've always been so supportive to all of us. If you need the break, I think we can all understand that.
