In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Green-Eyed Monster.”
Dear BFP Betty,
It has come to my attention that you nervously peed on a stick earlier this year and were finally blessed to see those evasive two pink lines. Since your miraculous moment, you have blessed your blog with countless pregnancy posts and bump pics. It disheartens me to say, but every time I see a new post the green-eyed monster in me roars.
Your writing was always a favorite of mine as I felt like you understood the infertility world better than anyone. You walked in my shoes and eloquently shared your experiences…we had never met, but you were the virtual friend that I needed; with you there, I was no longer alone. Then *poof* you were gone…sitting happily on the other side of the infertility railroad tracks with not a glance back at the ones you left behind. Your writing was once a well of inspiration or rants ….now there is a hole in my infertility support system that I have yet to find another to fill.
You likely had this same green-eyed monster in your life before you saw those two pink lines. If you thought he went away…he didn’t…instead he continues to live inside me. He kicks at my guts, steals my vision, and makes my heart beat fast. Do you remember this monster that once haunted you…he now consumes me.
I don’t want to unfollow your blog, but I feel like I have no choice. Sadly, the green-eyed monster feeds on pregnancy blog posts. Unfollowing you is a survival mechanism, please don’t take offense.
Your green-eyed BFN friend
Please note: As I sit in treatment limbo (see previous post), I struggle to find things to write about because my mind is actually pretty quiet at the moment. So, I thought the timing would be good to dust off the Blogging 101 task of using the Daily Prompt for inspiration.
