I just wanted to take a brief moment to verbalize something I just thought of.
I read a small handful of IF blogs. Most of the brave women who share their stories are unfortunate enough to be surrounded by pregnant women, mothers with babies, etc.
I am very lucky, as far as things like that go. I work with women who are all in their late 50's and early 60's, or middle-aged men. My friends are mostly unmarried men without girlfriends (JP and I are gamers, the tabletop kind), and a few women who are in very similar positions to my own.
I am thankful for this small bit of non-excitement.
