Oh I remember comments like that!! Some peeps are clueless.
Seriously?!?? And she works at a fertility clinic?? Someone should tell her to get a different job!
Oh, Ellen. I'm sorry! How ignorant and insensitive.The patient should mention that to her doctor...
Oh Ellen, I'm so sorry both for your disappointing news and for the insensitive uninformed nurse. FYI: the rates of spontaneous pregnancy for women who adopt after infertility are not statistically different than those that do not adopt. Unless you're a TV sitcom. Also, if you do decide to pursue adoption instead or in addition and want someone to talk to I'm always available.
Aww man, that is just horrible. Some people can be so clueless on how insensitive they are being.
That's awful! I'm so sorry!
What a jerk. My mother worked in a hospital for most of my life, and is still a practicing nurse and she has no problem speaking her mind. I think in this case scenario she would tell that person off to their face. I'm so sorry that person was an insensitive jerk-wad.
I am so sorry Ellen.
Yeah.... sigh.I'm in a better place today. I don't know what made me more angry... the complete wrong timing of the comment, the insensitivity or the fact that there is NO "just" to the adoption process. It was just all yucky.
Oh sorry on so many levels.
This makes me angry. That nurse is a big fat doodiehead. The End.P.S. I love you, Ellen!
They said that to me too. Call the doctor and raise hell, do not accept the nurse's attempt to cheer you up.I did adopt.
