Reminding myself why I do this...  
For my content writing, I often get article ideas from looking at the google search phrases bringing people to the pages/articles I've already created. It helps me focus on on precise topics/keyphrases that might be worth taking on.

It also can make me ragy/depressed/frustrated, especially when I look at the search phrases bringing people to some of my infertility awareness articles. Such as (and seriously, these are straight from Squidoo's Google search analytics:)

annoying infertile women childfree

terrible things people say to infertiles
i dont know how to deal with being infertile
people's insensitivity to infertility

Seriously, reading these search results...it makes me want to hug some people I don't even know across the internet - and also makes me want to bang my head against the wall (or do other violent things) in other cases.

And then I remember...yeah, this is why I write. Even if I can't get through to everyone. Even if some people will be forever clueless. Maybe there's at least someone out there who I can get through to, or someone else who's hurting and needs to know where and how to even begin trying to find support.

And I applaud you for it, given that it's such a difficult issue both socio-politically and emotionally. I have no doubt you have reached more than just one person and reminded them and yourself that it's something you don't have to face alone.
