Go figure, I'm slacking and haven't been keeping up with my entries. Ugh. Finding out baby number three wasn't much of an option hit harder than I expected and Curly Bones took a major backseat. I didn't want to write about all of it and now that I am ready to write again, I feel like I'm at a loss for words. I really don't know what to say or if I should bother writing at all. I started Curly Bones as an outlet for our infertility woes, a place to vent, a place where others could visit and realize they weren't alone. It helped me through a lot and I hope it helped at least one person but it served it's purpose either way and now I'm not sure what to do with it.
I've considered taking things in a completely new direction, I still have Arthritis and a major part of Curly Bones revolves around my Arthritis. I'm done trying to get pregnant, done having babies but I'm still a Mom with Arthritis, raising two toddlers and realized maybe I can still help other mothers. Mom's search out parenting advice all the time and mom's with Arthritis aren't any different but we definitely have a different experience when it comes to nurturing our children and maybe sharing my experiences as a mom can help.
I've come to realize there are a lot of mom's out there with Arthritis and other Autoimmune Diseases that don't have anyone that can relate to what they go through on a daily basis. There aren't a lot of resources for advice on the physical aspects of caring for a baby when you have Arthritis or recommendations for tools that can make life as a Mom easier and less stressful. Maybe the few years of experience I have can help those new moms that are searching for any advice they can get. So, for now Curly Bones will stay active and I'll still be here for those of you who have infertility questions or just need someone to talk to. I'll also try my best to decide what's next for this page of mine and I'll do my best to make it happen before another four months passes.
