Mike and I made New Year’s Resolutions this evening.

1) Get up out of bed. Every. Single. Day.
2) Drink less during the week.
3) Drink more on weekends.



  1. All fine resolutions. But, you know, sometimes staying in bed and hiding all day can be good too.

  2. I used to follow your story religiously – on FF and then LP. (I am a chronic lurker and you wouldn’t know me except for one PM I sent you about the similarities of on of our cats…) In any case, the last thing I knew of you was that you were off to Cornell… Now thanks to Kami, I’ve found you again. I’m only sorry that it wasn’t better news that brought me here. I’m so very, very sorry – that this happened to you and that I don’t have something more or better to say in response. I am profoundly, deeply sorry for this pain you are going through though.

  3. I agree with Solitaire that sometimes staying in bed is a good thing, but when you are really depressed, maybe not the best.

    I find that taking lots of walks helps too.

    Keep swimming.

  4. Frick, I’ve been reading through your last few posts and you’ve really been through the ringer on this one. While I can’t really comment on #1 (I get too restless in bed), #2 and 3 look good to me. It’s what I’m aiming for in 2008 as well. Hang in there.

  5. Great resolutions!

    For me, one of the hardest things after a chemical pregnancy loss was doing just that. Once I got going, had a shower, got my clothes on, MADE myself get started on the day, things seemed easier.

    But some days, it just sucked. Sucked, sucked, sucked. And I would just crawl back into bed early on those days.

    Still thinking about you. I may not know exactly how you feel, but I know how I felt after my chemicals. It’s awful.

  6. I am mostly a lurker but I have followed you on IVFC (after reading your incredible newspaper article) and wondered what had happened with your cycle. I’m so sorry for this result. I have never had a BFP so I cannot relate, but having given up the dream of bio kids at age 30, I can relate. I think No. 1 is important and always necessary, but No. 2 and 3 I’m not so sure about – as long as I meet all of my personal and professional obligations, I let myself drink whenever and wherever I please. Be good to yourself, whatever you do.

  7. So very sorry my dear friend. I am still here – watching, wishing, wondering. Please call to talk if you need to/want to… and by all means, get up. Be there for eachother Sending lots of love on the wings of angels.
