We're not taking it anymore!

Wow. I didn't mean for almost a whole month to pass before posting. I'm trying to stay good on my New Year's Resolution, but quite honestly I didn't know how to start a post after reading about the pain and heartbreak out there in the blogosphere.

It just seemed wrong to throw in one of my drawings that tries to make light of the whole infertility thing, ya know? Not when there is so so so much suffering.

But it can be so cathartic to draw our Infertility Monsters meeting their demise. It definitely has helped me cope with the emotional rollercoaster that comes with Infertility. Somehow it made me feel better to tie up my IF monster. And to keep him locked up. Other times it just felt good to scream at him. And who wouldn't want to give their IF Monster a wedgie if given the opportunity? What can I say...I'm a juvenile.

My heart mourns for you and I'm always here to send you hugs through the computer. But if you ever need someone to show your Infertility Monster the business end of a shovel, well, you know where to find me.

You know, you should offer to illustrate Mel's upcoming book! Between her IF characters and yours, you guys are really able to illustrate the world of IF.

Feel free to take out your frustrations on my monsters all you like! I'm thinking of setting up one of those dunking booths and letting people throw rotten tomatoes at them, or something.

I love your drawings and I always feel better when that monster is being tied up, knocked down or punched in the face. I'd like to take the Stress and Worry Monsters and sink them all to the bottom of the ocean! :)

It's great to give IF a face. So you know who to punch when you're mad.
