Some people are just idiots...

How's that for a title, huh?

It's almost 1 a.m., so indulge me in a little rant...

Ok, today I went to the doc's for a routine choelesterol blood test and a med check...just routine stuff. Met with the doc...blah...blah...new meds...blah.

So the nurse comes in the room to draw my blood. I told her to use my right arm as that one's the best...then I made some sarcastic joke about all the blood being drained from my left arm. She looked at me oddly so I explained that I'd had a lot of blood drawn over the past couple years because of infertility treatments.

She pauses, gives me a sympathetic look and says "Oh, that's too bad...I have five." *Picture eyes bulging out of my head* I mean, WTF? How do you respond to that? Then she continues..."All I have to do is blink and I'm pregnant!" Well goody, f***ing goody for you! She's a f***ing nurse! How f***ing insensitive can you f****ing be? Then she gave me the "just relax" mantra...(Oh really...damn...You mean that's all I had to do?)

I hate people sometimes.

*Rant over*

I'm so sorry. I have to admit that the main reason I subbed to your blog is to keep up with your treatments and progress since I went thought this myself. I can't believe how insensitive some people can be :( . Honestly, they're just clueless because unless you've been there, you just can't know how painful it can be. That doesn't excuse it, but I know that's why people say things like that...it's just impossible to understand how remarks like that can hurt people who go through what we've gone through. Hugs, sweetie.

Oh I so totally agree! I am in the same boat here except I can't even do the fertility treatments due to the meds I am on for my illness and may not even pass the home inspection for adoption due to my disability. People just won't drop the topic around me, I have learned to accept it and move on. It has taken a long time and is still a sore spot in my heart. It is not something I can keep "working on". UGH! I just loved your blog today, the title made me laugh, hugs to you!
