Sorry I'm not more supportive

Ok, I read my boards and respond kindly and supportively regularly. But every now and then, I see a post that really gets to me. It's never the ones labeled "TRIGGS". No, it's usually somebody saying something dumb. A special kind of dumb.

This morning, I found myself over the edge when someone posted about their co-workers asking them when they would get pregnant. My problem was that she already has one kid and had some line about 'wishing people were more sensitive' and 'you can understand where I'm coming from'.

No, I can't understand, cause I don't have any kids. You'd think that someone hanging out with IF people and that presumably has some IF problems of their own would be more sensitive. Maybe someday when I've had baby no. 1 I will understand, but till then, you just sound like an ass.

Also, last week someone got a positive on their beta on the ITSG board and needed to go for their second beta at 8:30 on the weekend and complained about not being able to sleep in. OMG! You've got to be kidding me. How quickly people forget where they came from. Never complain to an IF woman about having to get a second beta at 8:30 in the morning. I would show up happily at 3 am to a location 6 hours away if it was for my second beta.

Or how about the girl that had her embryos PGD the other week and thanked GOD that she knew which embryos had Down's Syndrome. She was someone that was always very religious in her postings, but there she was thanking God for for letting her know which embryos she shouldn't implant. For the record, I'm pro-choice, but there is something really messed up about praising God for knowing which embryos to destroy.

Ok, that's my rant till someone else says something unfathomably stupid.

Sorry for all the deletes, but I keep remembering other things to say. I totally know what you mean about reading a post and just not agreeing with it. I just find that I don't respond, as it would only upset people.
