Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky,
you'll get by

If you smile through your pain and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through
for you

Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear
may be ever so near

That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying?
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile.

Hi Michelle, I stumbled upon your blog a while back actually and been following it ever since. You are an amazing writer and to be honest an inspiration to me. Even thought we don't know each other personally I feel like we have a lot in common. My husband and I have been doing fertility treatments for a few months now ever since I was diagnosed with endo. I really love this poem...isn't is so hard to do when you sometimes feel like your whole world is falling apart.

I just happened across your blog, because I was trying to find a song that kind of describes how I'm feeling right now. I too suffer from infertility, but I'm just near the beginning of my journey.

Thank you. That's all. Sometimes it just helps for me to know that I'm not alone.

I read the rules you've set on your blog (VERY smart, by the way...) and am hopeful this doesn't violate any of them. :)

My name is Elisabeth, and I am an infertility / repeated pregnancy loss "veteran". You can read a little bit about me and my experiences in my (not very updated) blog: . I am completing a PhD in Counseling Psychology, and my dissertation is focused upon the impact of infertility on marriage. I believe strongly that there is a need for better support services for men and women who are undergoing IF diagnosis and treatment, and my hope is that this study will aid in the development of such services.

I am contacting you after stumbling across your blog. I am recruiting participants for my study, and wanted to invite you and your husband to take part. All that would be involved would be the completion of an online survey, that would take approximately 20 minutes. All couples who complete the surveys will receive a voucher good for a pair of free movie tickets at a Regal Cinemas.

Please let me know if you are interested! I have included the criteria for participation below.

Best of luck to you!

Member of a married, heterosexual couple
Both you and your spouse are between the ages of 20 – 45
You do not have any biological or adopted children living in your home
You are not currently pregnant
Either you, your spouse, or both has received an infertility diagnosis
You have received treatment for infertility in the past six months, or plan to do so in the next six months
Both you and your partner are willing to participate & have access to the internet
