shame about procrastinating
Don't know if this belongs on here, but I really need to vent.
I am having this horrible addition to my shame about being a procrastinator.
It is that I have been trying to get pregnant for 4 years now (1 year with infertility treatments) and there is this sense that . . . it's my fault because I waited to long!
It's really hard not to beat myself up about that, even though in my case, it's actually my partner with the known fertility issues (low sperm count). Still. . .
And my feminist bona fides get all upset with this rhetoric as well. But the feelings are still there. The clock is ticking and now I have some tough choices (and acceptance) to face. Adding guilt and shame over feeling that I have "procrastinated" is not helping. . .
Thank HP (and Pro) for this forum and bless you all for letting me get this out.
