I am holding office hours this week, but here's a short quote I heard at a conference last year that has stuck with me
"[Infertility] has taken my pride, my dignity, my privacy, my time, my self-esteem, my money and changed my goals and life’s plan. It’s caused my parents to judge me, my wife to have doubts about me, and it’s caused me to doubt myself."
From a talk by Brennan Peterson at the 2022 Jefferson Infertility Counseling Conference, Philadelphia; quote from Esmee Hanna, Brendan Gough et al. "Emoting infertility online: A qualitative analysis of men’s forum posts." Health: An Interdisciplinary Journal for the Social Study of Health, Illness and Medicine. 2016.
Thanks to all of you who are taking the time to speak to me during office hours. It's wonderful to meet you, catch up with you, hear your stories, hear your ideas, and share.
