Difficult decision to discuss

OK, this is difficult to even post but I thought it was worth a discussion because you like me are all TTC. Today I got an e-mail that I was a possible bone marrow donor match and to please contact the bone marrow donor registry. Wow. That made my heart leap. I called the number and said I am TTC and they said in that case that they would inactivate me for 2 years. I said that would be fine. I feel terribly selfish. It was not an easy thing to say no to. I remember why I registered to be a donor, and you hope and pray you are never the person who needs one or your relative or child. And its not the inconvenience or time off from work or the pain, but its the time itself of having to stop TTC in order to do it. I feel so guilty right now.
I know this is a tough one to discuss probably and maybe controversial so Vickie if you think you should remove this I am ok with that.
Life's decisions are not always so black and white. My suggestion to anyone on the registry and TTC would be to inactivate yourself immediately.
