Humor and Infertility?

When I first began to run mind/body support groups for women struggling with infertility, I included a segment on humor. A few colleagues thought I was nuts, reminding me that there is nothing funny about infertility as if I didn’t know. Humor as an important coping mechanism has remained part of my program since the beginning. We need to laugh, perhaps never more than when we’re dealing with adversity.

Laughter is healing. It releases endorphins. It takes the mind and the body out of the all consuming emotional stranglehold that is normal if you are dealing with this crisis.
