True Life fans?

I am completely overwhelmed with the beginning of the new school year, so I have been a bad, bad blogger. I'm behind reading, writing, and generally keeping up. I will be back soon, but for now I'm trying to keep my chin above water at work.

In the meantime, I wanted to spread the word about a media call that RESOLVE put out. I'm too much of a geezer to participate, but maybe some of you are spring chickens:

MEDIA ALERT: MTV is doing a “True Life” show on infertility. RESOLVE staff recently spoke to the producers, discussed their approach, and advised on how to address infertility. Now MTV is looking for people to share their stories. Have you always wanted to have a baby and are finding out that getting pregnant isn't as easy as it seems? Do you plan to seek help from a fertility clinic? Has trying to have a baby left you emotionally, physically, and financially drained? If you want to share your story, are age 18-29, are currently struggling with fertility issues, please email your name, story, location, PHONE NUMBER, and photograph if possible to MTVInfertile@mtv.com 


  1. HOLY MOLEY!!! Seeing this makes me incredibly excited! Hopefully MTV will pair with RESOLVE on this, making it a positive thing, but finally. Finally this is getting covered!

  2. Who really suffers from infertility at 18? I don't agree with the ages on there.

    1. I suppose some women could have had childhood cancer, anatomical issues, etc. So, they might be aware of infertility in their teens.

  3. Thank you for passing this along! I have applied. Will let you know if I hear anything! Cristy is right though, this is so exciting that they're even looking at this. I hope they do it justice!

  4. You make me laugh - geezer... I totally relate. I'm a geezer too.

  5. Fellow geezer. This is exciting, though! Good luck getting back into the swing of things with school.

  6. exciting that MTV is teaming with RESOLVE and the word will hopefully spread, but at the same time the age group of 18-29 just isn't realistic. I know it is for MTV and most likely their demagraphic age group, but statistically marriages are happening later in life and thus so is "starting a family." I am 34 and don't consider myself old my any means. My husband is 45 and no I don't think he is old either. I think this is more of the age group that is struggling and despratly willing to try anything to have a baby!

  7. Well I guess I'm out being that I am 31. I love that they are doing this, but hello! Most of us are not 18-29.


Shout it, shout it, shout it out loud!
