The other day someone compared having infertility issues with being a survivor. To me a survivor is someone who has come close to death, not someone who has non life threatening issue. Someone who beat cancer is a survivor, a crash victim is a survivor. Death knocked on their doorstep.
I don't feel that because I had children I "survived" infertility. I feel more like a struggler (if that's even a word, if not I just made it up), I struggle with infertility, and will even when I can no longer have children.
What do you think? I am interested in know how you guys feel about this. Post anonymously, if you want. Would you consider yourself a survivor or a struggler?
