I'm not sure where to start & not sure if this is the right place to post but here goes... Basically I have some long-term health issues & haven't worked in ages. About 5 years ago I did get to a stage where I was doing quite well & the choice was between trying to get back into work or trying to get pregnant. So we went the pregnancy route. I've been TTC all that time, did my 4th IVF cycle & got BFN November last year. IVF has taken such a toll on me healthwise (I've had OHSS, internal bleeding & an ectopic) & my existing health conditions have been really bad over Christmas & New Year. One of the symptoms is dizziness/vertigo & I had a fall last week which has really dented my confidence & sent my anxiety levels sky high. I know I have to rest now to try to get back to a manageable state but I just feel so useless. I don't bring in any money (but I do cost a lot to keep!), I have failed to have a child, the house is a mess because in my present state I can't keep up with the housework & I keep fearing that my partner will leave me (he says he won't). I feel like I have wasted most of the last 5 years & ruined my health for nothing. I think I have just lost hope for the future at the minute & am having difficulty seeing things getting better. Logically I know it should get better as I have had spells like this before & then have improved physically & emotionally but I just can't make myself believe it's going to happen this time if you know what I mean? Anyway, that's about it - thanks for reading! Is there anyone else who has long-term health condition/s & struggles too? Any strategies for coping?
