  1. cupcake closed the comments. Gee, big surprise there.

  2. So exciting - I can't wait to see the show! And as to this:Kick that blonde bitch in the shins for me!A big resounding yes - she is a simyoungihming fool esp on the topic of IF - go get her Riri!

    ETA: have you guys ever seen the spoofs of The View on SNL - hysterical, esp of Elizabeth and her histrionics.

  3. I got the last comment. YES! I love having the last word.

  4. The abilithy to bathe my Riri obsession with a moving picture of her? Too excited for words. Me thinks me needs a sick day Thursday. Can't wait to see you ! AND, I will be SCREAMING at my tv while you're on, so you know, give me a little shout out - I don't know, comb your fingers through your hair and I'll know it was for me.....

  5. , so you know, give me a little shout out - I don't know, comb your fingers through your hair and I'll know it was for me.....

    LMAO.

    yesser, SO nice to see you around these parts.

  6. Ladies,
    I love you all. Those of you who know me in real life know that I mean that.

    I am sooooooo not youngihmfect, and I am so not the youngihmson who can make it better for all of us. What I am is the youngihmson who has truly been through a hellll far beyond what I ever concieved possible and is still surviving, often, quite reluctantly.

    I don't know what I can accomplish on Thursday. The whole segment I'm part of is all of 7 minutes. I'm going to try. I promise you that I am. But I'm not your hero. I just try.

    When I went through this process, I promised myself that no matter what happened, I would still fight for our rights, and even though my irl friends are pretty fed up with me, and think it's time I've moved on and try to heal and work on the rest of my life, I'm not giving up. But with that said, I know that it's an uphill battle. And I don't want you to think that I can work miracles, I'm only one youngihmson and pretty d@mn flawed and weakened by the sh#t in my life. So pleased don't be disappointed if I fail to accomplish anything meaningful on Thursday. I suspect the forum is designed to avoid getting to the big issues. I suspect that they'll try to keep it light and mostly silly. I'm so scared, now, of disappointing you and the women on the parenting OT board who have been such great supporters.

    My life has been insanely shittttty of late. I'm still not divorced, because my husband and his crapppy family want to torture me (although I hear it will be soon); I finally started on line dating, which is evil and painful, business has been awful, failure all around. But I remain committed to getting us our rights, and I can tell you that we have good supporters in Congress. I speak regularly to some of them and they are going to keep our issues on the agenda. Please don't expect miracles from me. But I promise, I realy promise, that I won't let you down and I will do my best on Thursday. And I will keep on fighting our fight to get attention to infertility as a disease and pursue appropriate coverage and research dollars.

    And for those who want/need to know: it was an online date tonight at which I drank an insanely delicious Suyoungihm Tuscan, blend of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Sangiovese. I had 3 glasses. Since he didn't spring for food, I'm going to scavange in my cupboards, which means organic popcorn for dinner tonight. A little bit of drunken kissing, but probably not my Prince Charming. Dating sux beyond your worst imagination and you should all drop to your knees and thank your husbands for being there for you in the best possible ways that you can think of, particularly from that position. (ok, maybe that's more than they deserve, but youngihmhaps you'll get something great back, and I'm jealous!)

    Anyhow, thanks for all of your support, REALLY, thanks for the emails and facebook messages and the posts here and everything. I don't really deserve it. But I'll do my best.

    And as I said at the outset, I LOVE YOU ALL.

    Just having the courage to put yourself out there is worthy of everyone's admiration imho.

    I think the miracle for infertiltiy coverage and support is going to be the continued raised awareness and public education until people in general think...well of course it should be covered, we all know it is a significant disease.

    Sorry about dating he11 and the ex-trials. I truly can't imagine having to do that! I hope you find some freakin' amazing (smoking hot) guy someday soon.

  8. Can somebody tape it and put it on youtube??????PLEASE? I can't stay home on Thu but want to watch it.

  9. It's the only way I'll be able to see it!

    Go, RiRi, go!!! You so rock!

    See, no one is youngihmfect and no one can make it better for us. The fact is, this is hell and you happen to be an amazing youngihmson who has lived through it. So no pressure here to make major breakthroughs on a silly show like the View. However, a little recognition will be nice and I think we're all proud to have you be the one to get some of it for our community.

    So sorry about the dragging and dragging divorce (I have friends who are dealing with similar) and while the dating world does not sound fun (sorry) at least you got some good wine out of it. I hope it gets better. It will get better!

    Hear, hear!!

  12. Dating sux beyond your worst imagination It does, it really, really does. But once in a while you may get a chance to meet a great Tuscan blend. Now there's a silver lining.

    You can watch it on hulu hulu.com
    It looks like they post it the following day.

    Riri - you'll be great. Even a small portion of air time is better than none. I'm just so excited that a true vet is going to be on (instead of someone like the fertility idiot, I mean advocate). You'll rock your seven minutes of fame, I'm sure.

    As for the dating - agreed, it is hell. But at least the stories are occasionally humorous...

  14. So, she did publish my comment but couldn't resist explaining herself yet again. Here is her email back to me:....I never said that that positive thinking brings about the outcome that you think that you want - or that negative thinking brings about a negative outcome. I simply never said it.

    i\'ve been away from the vets board for a while, but i still check in on you ladies from time to time, and i just have to delurk to say that the wording this woman chose in defending herself to kate is incredibly rude and also INDEFENSIBLE.

    this is the part that makes me so damn mad: "the outcome that you think that you want " who the **** does she think she is? she's doubting that kate actually wants what she thinks she wants? oh, right, i get it. because if we really wanted viable pregnancies, we would have had them. i do think that maybe as a vet i MAY be over-reacting here. but give me a break. a youngihmson who puts themselves out as a representative of an issue, as an ADVOCATE, none the less, either needs to be more careful with her language or own up to the cruelty of her blame-language. *****.

    and on a more positive note: go riri. good luck tomorrow. i'm so glad someone will tell a version of our story, however brief the segment is.

  15. Thank you for doing this Riri! You will do great. I am so very proud to know you IRL. I will be glued to the TV tomorrow and the DVR is set so I can watch it again and again...

  16. Can someone tell me when The View is on and what channel it is on Time Warner in Manhattan? (as you can see I don't watch much TV...) But I really want to DVR this one.
