There is an article right? Or a tutorial? Or something to navigate communicating to your partner the pain you feel and why they should understand?
I tried. I even have a post about it. But there is no explanation. There is no way. No one can really understand no matter how much they love you and want to help. It is like anything…until you have been through it, you can’t understand.
So here I am. Out on a date with a man I have been committed to for 10 years. A man I love. A man who has tried. But he can’t understand.
I try to be a blog about positivity. I try to find the silver lining. But I also am honest. Always honest. And I will say – going through PCOS and IR with a partner who isn’t…is lonely.
Please don’t get me wrong. I love him and our relationship. But he just doesn’t get it. He can’t.
So here I am…sitting at a bar…next to my husband and writing to you. Thank goodness this crazy world has made it normal for a couple on a date to be on their phones next to each other.
But here is the thing. I am SO thankful he isn’t going through this. I am so thankful he doesn’t have the pain that I do and that he doesn’t understand this.
So I will take a deep breath. And another drink of wine (because hey – I feel nauseated anyway) and I will make this a great night. Because I love him. And because we only have this moment we are given.
