@Bongley Me too Luv!!! I used to read that thread when I first joined BH
@Bongley @Green Lady yes I totally get where you're coming from. I was stuck in that completely sucky job I finally quit last year for nearly the whole time I was TTC and struggling. I had 2 losses during that time and didn't get a single pay rise the whole time i was there and I felt that as much as I hated it there that I was stuck because for most of it I at least had a manager who knew about things and was understanding. I have since heard that a bunch of biatches that worked with or around me are pregnant or have given birth since and I was SO relieved I escaped before having that sh!t thrown in my face.
On the other side of it though, my work (my own stuff) has been my saviour too, and its been one thing that I can throw myself into a lot and get lost in it since its creative and I love doing it. So thats the one thing that scares me about having a kid is that I won't have much time for that! Crazy isn't it.
Its all such a fine balancing act with managing your mental capacity to deal with everything at once, keeping yourself alive and being able to survive the best you can. It really does come down to that. I look at some friends of mine who have never really had anything huge to face, not even with their parents and family, and then I realise how much DH and I both have had thrown at us over the years. It really is not fair. Spread the joy I say
Nah I really wouldnt wish any of this on my worst enemy.
..my worst enemy?? hmmmmmmmmmmm....

@BlondeinBrisvegas Yes I know the misalignment with masseuses well. Except Im on the less hard more relaxing end - but i like firm just not too firm. The last one I had I came out hurting, and was hurting for days afterwards. And I remember during it feeling like backhanding her whilst I was lying there and hearing her tell me people who sit down for work have very tight muscles around the butt legs/lower back region. Yes I thought, it was like she was punishing me for that fact!!!
I can give you her number if you like
In an hour I'm taking my much loved fur baby to the vets to be put to sleep. I can't stop crying. My heart is breaking.
@ange1111 not sure what to do sorry. I hope the 6 follies have good quality eggs. sometimes it's more about quality than quantity. not sure if that helps. I've never had intralipids so not sure about those
Hugs @Tahli that is one of the hardest things to do I had to get my old girl euthenased a couple of months ago and I was blubbering like there was no tomorrow in the vets office. I felt so guilty because I thought she probably could have struggled on hobbling around for another year or two, but the vet basically said to me 'its about time!' so he obviously thought I had strung it out long enough. She was suffering. It is the kindest thing to do, but yes, it's incredibly hard to do.
