stinging words

"My mom said your sister should just have the baby for you."

There's a statement that can kill a buzz. I'm ready to go home and curl up in bed now.

(we are out celebrating Buster's 30th birthday with friends and family.)

  1. Wow! That just solves everything, right?

    I'm so sorry that you had to deal with that tonight. Instead of celebrating the day the man you love was born, you are left with trying to educate the ignorant. Boo.

    Sending you a hug and hoping the rest of the night is better.

  4. ugh, we all need to start a running list of the dumb crap that people say to us about IF and mc/ baby loss. So not ok.
    I hope you continue to take care of yourself.
    P.S. Happy bday buster :)

  5. urgh that, just relax and adoption are stupid things people say trying to "help" not realizing what they are saying. What I don't get is, I'm pretty sure before our TTC struggles I probably wouldn't have been that stupid! Sorry chicky. :(

  6. I'm sorry that sucks.
    And what's worse is it is coming from your mom. Some random stranger or a not so close friend would still hurt, but not like that.

  16. Ouch. So sorry you had to hear such an ignorant comment. I wish people didn't feel like they needed to give unsolicited advice all the time. Sometimes it's better not to say anything or to simply say "I'm sorry and I don't know what to say".

  17. I think people just are clueless and don't put enough thought into the things they say sometimes. It's like they dont know what to say, so they say something that winds up being hurtful without even realizing it. They are better off saying nothing at all.
