1 in 10 people fall somewhere on the gay spectrum. I am bisexual and polyamorous.
1 in 40 adults are bipolar (approximately). I am the most recent in a long family line of bipolar disorder.
1 in 8 suffer from Infertility. I am part of that 1 in 8. I am the 1.
I am the 1.
I am the ONE.
1 in 3200 if you do the math. ONE.
The shame, the silence, the hiding, the pain...all of these apply to anyone who falls into one of those categories. They always have. But it doesn't have to be that way. There are resources.
This week is National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW). The theme is "Don't Ignore." Don't let this apply to only Infertility. There are so many others hurting, suffering shame, fear, pain. Be an advocate. Don't ignore them.
"Mothers tell your childrenBe quick you must be strong
Life is full of wonder
Love is never wrong
Remember how they taught you
How much of it was fear
Refuse to hand it down
The legacy stops here"
Stop the fear. Stop the shame. Stop the silence.
Stop the LEGACY.
