‘My HR director said, ‘We don’t have a need for infertility coverage right now.’ I would have to fight ferociously and sacrifice everything.’: Woman candidly details grueling infertility journey

“Medications, injections, acupuncture, growth hormones, hot Chinese herbs, burning moxibustion sticks. No cold, raw, or processed foods and drinks. No products with parabens, fragrances, and BPA. I was mad at the world. Every second, another woman was discovering an ‘oopsie pregnancy,’ while I had done nothing short of Olympic-level aerial gymnastics to get pregnant—and it still didn’t matter.”

‘I’m Claire. I’m 90. I’m single. And I don’t need no man! Mic drop.’: 90-year-old woman hilariously praises ‘hubby-free’ life, claims it’s ‘the secret to living long’

“I’m a prune, I know. But a living prune nonetheless! I don’t have Alzheimer’s. I don’t use a cane. Yes, I remember what I ate for dinner 3 nights ago. And I don’t have a husband! No, he didn’t die off on me. I didn’t outlive him. He never existed! I’m convinced these leafy greens aren’t the only reason I’m been alive and truckin’ this long!”

‘Since I was 12, I wanted to be Mrs. Chris. He was my first kiss, my first love. Only there was one problem. Chris was older than me. We had to sneak around. I was obsessed with him.’

“My little sister and I were talking about our pasts. Of course, Chris came up. I made the comment that I needed to call him and see how he’s doing. A few hours later, the phone rang. I recognized the name on Caller ID right away. It was Chris! I was so excited that I jumped. However, it wasn’t Chris on the other end. It was his stepdad.”
