Okay, so I went to see my primary doctor today about possibly getting on an antidepressant, and she asked me, was I still sad because of my pregnancy? Um, yeah, it's only been a little over 2 months since my baby died and I almost died. Add to that the worry of potentially never being able to have a successful pregnancy in the future. I was crying a little and wiping the tears away, at which point she asked me, "When was the last time you saw an eye doctor? Have your eyes been leaking like that a lot?"

I have to hand it to her: She almost succeeded in making me laugh.
