Hi Michelle. I completely understand where you're coming from -- there is a point where you just don't have anything more to give to TTC -- and I was almost at that point myself. I am glad that you made this decision when the choice was right for you and I hope that you are moving on happily. We will miss you heere -- and I am so grateful for the support you have give to me personally and to others on the board.

Take good care and drop in once in a while to say hello.

I just started the fertility treatment journey and often feel overwhelmed and "tired" already.
