That funny moment when you realize someone will never be there for you, like you for them.
You have no idea how strong you are.
You have no idea how much you are capable of.
You will look back on yourself in 1, 2, 10, 20 - however many - years, and go, “wow, I was so brave.”
You can’t see it now because it feels like you’re stuck in a marathon with no clear ending, and because it’s…
"If you’re part of the 10 percent of couples who have taken a ride on the infertility bus, you know that it’s not easy having a reproductive system that doesn’t do so good at the ‘reproductive’ part."
5 Surprisingly Outdated Problems Infertile Couples Face
#4. Everyone’s Medical Knowledge on the Subject Is Completely Terrible
Even after couples go through all the expensive tests that science has to offer, about 20 percent of them will still be told that their infertility is officially “unexplained.” … But while reproductive endocrinologists will at least usually admit that they don’t know why your or your partner’s womb resembles the dry barren plains of Mars, some non-doctors lack such humility. These laypeople once read something about infertility in an email forward they received 15 years ago, and by God, they are going to repeat it to you.
May The Lines Be Ever In Your Favor! Let’s not give up ladies!! Stand Strong!!
This is probably the best infertility post I’ve seen yet today. #mylifenowiguess
You are a woman. You and your boyfriend have decided that you want to have a baby, but find out that he is infertile. Here are your options:
- Take the sperm from his father/brother and use it to fertilize your egg.
- Use an anonymous sperm donor from a clinic.
- Use sperm from somebody you know (ex. a close friend).
- Adopt a child.
- [Insert your own answer here.]
What do you do?
I’d try to go with the same DNA donor first. Brother/father, if they’d be willing. A lot of families are so supportive.
Personally, I don’t think I could do anonymous donor. So, second option would probably be adopt.

In the nineteenth century, a morbid and curious custom has spread to various parts of the world: the photos were ”Post Mortem”.
”Post Mortem” comes from Latin, meaning after death.
The photos ”Post Mortem” apparently originated in England, when Queen Victoria asked to photograph the corpse of an acquaintance or a relative, so she can keep as a souvenir.
soon after, this idea spread around the world, keeping a morbid reminder of loved ones that have passed on.
Even today, as strange as it may seem, some places still have this custom.
The girl who is standing in the photo is the one who is dead.
This is a classic example of photographic art.
Notice the hands
for people wondering how the corpse is standing up, there is a posing stand supporting the body it’s very hard to see but the stand is supporting the neck, arms and back.
the girl in this picture has her eyes open, but in some cases the photographer will paint pupils on the eye lids to make it seem like they are wide awake
Have some historical, non-fiction creepypasta.
I’ve studied about these pictures not too long ago.
One of the reasons they were so popular was that, while protography started to become popular at that time, it was still expensive, and sometimes the families couldn’t pay for take pictures of their children or other relatives often. So, they did it when said people died so, this way, they would have at least one memento of them.
Sometimes, the photos themselves were painted, to make the corpses look a little more “alive”. A lot of manipulation techniques were used.
this is so fucking creepy
It’s beautiful, in it’s own right.
Time passes us by so quickly.
i really, really need someone to come be with me right now. i’m at the lowest i’ve ever been. but no one i know in real life watches my tumblr enough to see this before it no longer matters.
i’m not myself and it’s getting progressively worse.
We can lean on one another. I’ll see you Monday 😚💋💜
