This is what Amy said to me as we ended our session.
Amy came to see me after her friend’s suggestion.
Amy is in her late 30s; she holds a managerial position, is a high achiever, highly energetic, has a large social circle, eats healthy, practices yoga, and hikes a lot.
Amy and her husband have been together for almost eight years. From the time they dated, they knew they wanted two children, but they were waiting for the right time to start their family. Four years ago, they decided it was time, and they got married.
Like many others, they thought getting pregnant was spontaneous and easy, so they tried naturally. A year passed, and nothing happened. Their stress level went through the roof. Amy was anxious and deeply disappointed in her body. Amy’s husband saw her moods change, her frustration, and how drained she was becoming. He suggested they meet with a fertility doctor.
They met with different doctors and went through various tests. Amy felt as if she and her body didn’t work in harmony. It felt like her body was betraying her.
And then came the diagnosis: unexplained infertility.
Amy felt broken. What if she would never be able to carry her child?
What did it mean about her relationship with her husband?
What did it mean about her? Her femininity? Her desire to be a mother?
Based on their doctor’s advice, they started treatments. Soon they learned about the emotional rollercoaster that comes with those treatments. Each month began with hope and anticipation and ended in pain and misery.
To add to all this, there were the hormones and injections.
Even though the process was physically painful and took a huge emotional toll, Amy was determined to continue.
Amy’s husband was in pain, too, watching his love suffer without being able to do much about it. It was too painful to see Amy going through this.
And Then We Met…
So, after almost two years since they started trying, Amy contacted me.
Amy told me how hard it is to deal with all those emotions, how impossible it is to put on the “business as usual” face when inside, she is a mess.
She told me about how painful it was to go to her friends’ baby showers. She had decided not to go anymore.
Amy had to pause and put on a smile when someone asked when she was planning to have a baby. If only they knew how much she wanted that and what she was going through to make it happen.
Her friends didn’t want to upset her, so they didn’t talk about their kids, and she knew they stopped inviting her to parties so she wouldn’t need to deal with the pain. She felt alone. She felt left behind.
We started to compassionately work on Amy’s emotions, feelings, stress, and anxiety to help her sleep better and quiet down her inner chatter.
Every time we met, she was able to find another inner resource and reconnect with herself. She started to accept her body and learn how to work with it.
When Amy said, “I’m starting to feel like me again,” it felt like she was finding her way to rebuild her trust in herself.
And at the end of our last session, she said: “𝐈 𝗪𝐈𝐒𝐇 𝐈 𝐇𝐀𝐃 𝐇𝐄𝐀𝐑𝐃 𝐎𝐅 𝐘𝐎𝐔 𝐁𝐄𝐅𝐎𝐑𝐄; 𝐈𝐓 𝗪𝐎𝐔𝐋𝐃 𝐇𝐀𝐕𝐄 𝐒𝐀𝐕𝐄𝐃 𝐌𝐄 𝐒𝐎
orporates the practice of self-compassion and mind-body balance and supports her clients in finding their inner resources to make sustainable shifts in their lives. Individuals who practice those principles feel empowered in many aspects of their lives and improve their overall well-being.
