Mvoyek, I have been where you are. I miscarried when my sister in law was pregnant and now my niece is 8 years old. I can't help but think that I'd have an elementary school aged child by now too. I coped by just living my life and enjoying myself as best I could. I still get those woe is me moments but I know that what is for me is for me. I did eventually get on antidepressants for some time but I didn't stay there long. Now we're trying again and my fingers are crossed. I'm getting much older and my window is shrinking but I'm hopeful. Be strong and know you're not alone out here.View Thread
