    @Blossom74 Just wanted you to know I'm thinking of you and sending much love, hugs and healing for your broken heart

    I can only imagine how you must be feeling which is why it's better I leave it to the other Lovelies here who actually do know how you're feeling having unfortunately been through it themselves to support/talk you through this painful time

    10mg's is the standard starting dose for a basic immune protocol Luv. Do you have any known immune issues??

    I haven't used that med, @midnite01, but I'd probably stick with the dose your FS recommends

    @midnite01 my fs nurse told me to start off on 5mg and every 4days increase by 5mg. Till i get to 25mg then start decreasing the same way. I have thyroid issues though. Im sure your dose is right for you.

    @Blossom74 ... Weve just met and all. But I just wanted to say that you are heard.

    I've been in this space for all of 5 minutes but I came seeking =here= because I needed a "Cheers" ~ a bar where everybody knows your name kinda space. No one in my real life really understands. I'm alone in this. A few friends know. But I still can't honestly talk about the sobbing or the jealousy and resentment and fear and anxiety and panic.

    What I'm trying to say is - I know numb. I know the disconnect. I know the random sadness. I think we all do here.

    I think - even if you have a partner which I don't - you're still essentially alone - because it's your body heart and soul that's going through this seriously intense process ... And it's totally frocking hideously hard.

    I think this is the one space where no apologies are needed.

    If I've been here in this forum for 5 minutes and I get it ...

    I think these people who've been part of your network and your journey for a lot longer, I think they'll definitely get it.

    ❤️

    yes @GreyDove very eloquently put
    @Blossom74 I always give myself time to just feel emotions (even if it is numbness) and to just go with it for a while. A counselor might help too, I found mine invaluable when I eventually got around to seeing one. I totally understand not wanting to do anything, I've felt like that on and off for several years and it can be debilitating. My partner has taken up marathon running the past two years. I am very proud of him but sometimes I look at him getting excited about his next race and I feel very alone in the stress and sadness and apathy of it all.

    @Blossom74 I am thinking of you during this difficult time. Everyone else has offered some really good advice.

    I have never been in your shoes, but I have suffered cycle after cycle with no or short implantation. When I found out in April that my eggs were duds and I would never have a bio child of my own I thought I would never get over the sense of loss. I couldn't imagine ever feeling happy again. I let myself wallow (if that is the right word?) in the pain. I embraced it and ranted, raved and cried. And when I could cry no more I picked myself up and slowly, day by day, the pain lessened.

    I know my story is different to yours, but I just wanted to let you know whatever you are feeling at the moment is what you are supposed to be feeling. Don't get caught up in 'I should feel like this, or this'. Your soul knows what it needs and if you need to be sad and numb, then don't feel bad, you will feel better in the end, just give yourself time xxxx

    @Blossom74 I don't really have any advice that is different to the other lovely ladies here, but just want to say again that taking all the time you need is really important, and to let yourself grieve in any way that you want to. I know it is really hard for your DH to understand the level of grief, mine was useless with it, as they don't experience the hormones, the instant bonding, the feeling of having another little life inside you - so they can't really relate as for them it is just an idea rather than a reality as it is with us.

    Grief takes time and you have had a significant loss. Don't downplay what you've been through, it's an absolute nightmare that no one should have to endure. Your hormones will be dropping and your body has to come to terms with the loss just as much as your emotions do. Maybe with the events this week just have a low-key nod to them, and talk to your husband about "celebrating" them at a later date. Although as @Green lady said, sometimes it can help to get out and put on a happy face and do something normal.

    I don't have any answers. I grieved for a year after my last loss and even though I'm out of the worst now, I still balled my eyes out at the new FS last week even though I thought I was OK and dealing really well.

    Take good care of yourself and do whatever you need to do. One day at a time.
