Stress test

I found this on a site as I was perusing infertility groups...

Infertility Stress Test Results

Your total score is: 28

Generally you feel in control of your emotions but your experience with infertility is starting to wear on you. If you are starting to feel isolated by infertility you should consider reaching out to the support network you already have available to you including your partner, family, friends and the medical professionals who are working with you. While it can be difficult to share feelings of fear, frustration or disappointment, maintaining strong, open and honest relationships will help you fend off distress during this difficult period in your life.

If you feel you cannot share your feelings with loved ones, we recommend that you look into other avenues for emotional support. Left unchecked, feelings of isolation and depression usually increase but you can take steps to improve your mood, your outlook on fertility treatment and the outcome of treatment too.

Just wanted to say "hi"! Thanks for your comment on my post. I'm glad you like when I swear. Sometimes I wonder if it offends people but then I write my blog for me so I just go with it. I find I can express myself better sometimes with curse words. =)
