This too shall pass

hoping-for-the-best profile image

After the nightmare emotional rollercoaster of the last two weeks, I’ve been really struggling emotionally, especially given what a terrible round we had and what that means for the future. I’ve really been in a dark place, spiralling downwards and just feeling utter despair. Thankfully, today my mood seems to be lifting. One of the hardest things to deal with through IVF is the lack of control in every aspect of the process. I feel we can deal with quite a lot physically, but emotionally we have to be really careful about our mental health and what the constant state of anxiety can do to us.

For all those out there going through similar struggles, I just wanted to say be kind to yourselves, take it a day at a time and have faith that you will get through this. It’s one of the toughest things anyone can go through, so it’s understandable to feel a multitude of difficult emotions. But you won’t feel like this forever. As the old adage goes, “this too shall pass”. Xx

I’m so sorry that you have been having such a difficult time. I can really relate to everything that you’ve said. I think it’s amazing that after being in such a dark place so recently that you can write such brave and supportive words for others, thank you. I’m glad that things are starting to feel slightly brighter. Sending the same warmth, support and positivity right back to you xxx

Thank you Picalilli, I’m sorry that you’ve been going through a hard time recently too. This forum is such a great source of support and one thing you can be sure of is that others on here share the same feelings and understand better than anyone. Xxx

Your post really made me emotional. It is indeed a rollercoaster! There are so many highs and lows. however, one shouldn't give up. The thing that is very important on this journey is to be positive. The more your surrounding is filled with positivity that better you will feel. I am saying this from my own experience. I hope things work out for you.

Big are right...this too shall pass.

This is just what I needed to read at 6am when anxiety keeps me up. Thank you
