|Me, Susanne Rico & Lindsay Taub|
Here's the low down: Along with a panel of three doctors available to answer questions, I was one of two ladies who shared their personal egg freezing experience with a room full of wonderful women. A rainbow of sixty women attended -- some listened, some asked questions and some just tagged along to support a friend.
My favorite part of the night came at the end when I was able to chat with women individually. All of them were at different points in their fertility journey, but I could see a piece of myself in each one I spent time with: I remember what it feels like trying to take in all that information. I remember what it feels like hoping not to be judged. I remember what it feels like being squeezed by urgency. Most of all, I remember what its like to feel alone in all of it.
When I went through the whole egg freezing process, my best friend brilliantly reminded me (at all the perfect times, of course) that I wasn't alone. So remember: Just because you feel alone, doesn't mean you are. There's always someone who's willing to walk with you. Leave a comment or send me an email, I'd love to hear about your journey!
