Infertility & Loneliness- a Male's Perspective

My Perspective was one I never thought I'd share, but here goes nothing:

Every road to life leads to a new journey. The biggest journeys are usually the ones that you least expect. I am an infertile man! At first I was embarrassed, felt weak, less of a man, and any other masculine insult you can add. 
Now I stand tall and know who I am.
This has not always been the case. The moment I found out I was infertile, I immediately shed tears of pain. I was in the third doctor's office and couldn't hold it any longer. I couldn't be strong and pretend. Life came crashing down with three words.
"You are Infertile!"

I always wanted a family and now I could not obtain a family in the traditional sense. I was in denial- this cannot be. 
No one in my family is infertile, and in fact they all had children of their own. Did I mention that I have over 16 first cousins on one side? 
I was suffering alone.
Secretly I became angry at my family. I hated them. Do you know what it is…
