Hi, I’ve just had my et in our fourth round of ivf (First fet). We had two cancelled cycles over the summer holidays which caused me huge amounts of stress and I’m worried about how to manage work and stress levels this time round. I’m a PE teacher and Head of Year so there isn’t a moment of space when I’m at school, and lots of meetings and fixtures etc after school. I know my stress levels are still high from the summer and I went to see my doctor ahead of this transfer for advice and all they could offer (when I listed all my symptoms) was either sleeping tablets or trying just to ‘chill’....... I was signed off (by the same doctor) on my last cycle and feel even more stressed this time round and just don’t know what to do to get a bit of breathing space from a demanding job. I was surprised not to be signed off as I’m struggling to remember how to spell common words, remember words, my short term memory is appalling (even within 20 seconds I can forget something), I’m struggling to plan lessons, forget that I’ve done work so am redoing it before I realise (sometimes up to three times!) my teeth and jaw are sore from where I must be clenching my teeth..... I won’t bore you with all my symptoms but wondered what other teachers have done in a similar situation......?XxxX
