"When we decided to start a family we thought it was just a question of time. But then we found out that we suffered from infertility. What followed was a long and emotional journey. I understood all the facts of infertility, but my emotions were so strong and often so confusing. Was that normal? How could I get through it? That’s why I wrote down my feelings and what was happening throughout my journey from finding out about infertility to finally becoming a Mummy. This is not a medical book, but if you are looking for comfort in knowing that other people have gone through this before you, struggled with their emotions just as much and want to hear their story, then it is the book for you. If my writing helps only one person to find a little bit of strength and hope from my story, my suffering was not for nothing. My journey resulted in a beautiful baby." This is the journey of a young woman on her journey to motherhood. It starts with excitement which slowly moves into devastation and fear but eventually ends with a happy ending. The story is a true life story from a young woman who kept a diary of her emotions and experiences whilst going through the emotional and physical stress you can experience when IVF treatment becomes your only chance for motherhood.
My book ‘An Expat’s Experiences of Living in Turkey’ is based on the many and varied experiences that have occurred during the past 25 years spent living in Turkey. It starts with how as an Englishman I came to arrive here in 1989 and why within a very short space of time my late wife and I decided to buy a plot of land and have a house built in a quite village down on the Mediterranean Coast. What followed from our decision to uproot and move to Turkey is a mixture of joy, happiness, distress, frustration, grief and finishing with extreme happiness, with my now living in a completely new environment and enjoying a second life here in Turkey. Scattered throughout the book are various tips and suggestions on a variety of things that can help those thinking of either just buying a holiday home here, of moving to live here permanently.
The saying in life is really true that a persons life can change overnight! Mine did in 2010 when I woke up with a swollen leg, that afternoon I was in an emergency room in Hackensack NJ. The Ultra sound showed 3 blood clots! The one in my leg was called Deep Vein Thrombosis and the other two were by both lungs called Pulmonary Embolisim. Between 2 hospital stays, 3 leg operations, and a stay in physical rehab I was in a bed for 30 days. I always say Be Thankful For What You Have!
You're Ovaryacting is a short non-fiction piece - an extended anecdote I guess. It started as a facebook status then grew into something bigger. The theme is sexism in the workplace, an issue that has received much media attention in Australia in recent months. I found myself incredibly angry at the treatment of our first ever female Prime Minister Julia Gillard and decided to write about my own experiences. Thanks for allowing me the chance to share my story!
