I had to bring attention to Invisible Illness Week which is this week. Especially when it comes women dealing with chronic illness or pain and also having the challenge of infertility! Infertility could also be seen as an invisible illness. I don’t like it being referred to as a ‘disease’ which kind of makes me feel a victim, or being broken, or something you can catch… Anyhow the combination of pain or illness and fertility is a really big challenge. I know what this is like because of being a migraineur (cluster headaches/occular migraines) and I am sure that the physical and emotional stress of that together with trying to creating a life can have a huge effect. It probably also has a lot to do with why I haven’t been successful yet on the road to creating a family through treatments. So I really want to support those of you out there who have this double condition, and know that you are not alone.
