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
