Good afternoon. After joining a few months ago it's finally time I got round to introducing myself & using the site more.
I'm a single lady living in the Midlands. I have recently been diagnosed with M.E/CFS but have always wanted a family.
Previous long term relationship broke down after 15 years due to differences, one being my desire to have a family.
I find myself alone after dating for the past 5 years but not finding anyone who wished to start a serious relationship / family together.
After visiting my G.P last month to ask about fertility options I was told IVF was available if I had a partner, but basically, to seek counselling to prepare myself for the fact it might not happen. Or, to get out and start feeling better about myself.
Not exactly what I was hoping to hear. I feel lost.
