    What can I say?
    I know exactly how you feel, it must be hard to reach this point. I’m feeling so over it at this point and I haven’t even made it on the plane to go over.
    Thinking of you

    @stacey10 thanks , will do a google search. I’d absolutely try to avoid an operation. I don’t like hospitals and have never been admitted other than IVF that is.

    FS in oz if you have one with letter detailing what you’ve done here and why you need to go OS
    Quotes from overseas with treatment costs broken down plus Dr N also did a letter

    This was in addition to airfare and accommodation quotes

    I should add they have really started to clamp down on it for OS applications so have every type of documentation available as we did to support your case. We did it 18 months ago and they do delay some cases now but Supercare won’t tell you that until it’s “sitting on DHS desk waiting to be looked at”. I would not use Supercare again if I needed to. If you know what you’re doing and what you need correctly there is no need to pay them the $1400 for you doing all the work.
    Yes I’ve done all that, did it yesterday with the psych and GP. Application is ready to go shortly. The system changed mid last year, it’s handled by the ATO now, not the DHS. Ours is a particularly complicated case, we couldn’t have handled it ourselves. And fortunately we only got charged the $980 instead of $1480 due to a clerical error, so they waived the rest.

    I told my sister last night about my diagnosis that i've received from the blood tests about NK cells etc and said i was getting a cyst removed off the ovaries, removal of endo plus hysteroscopy and biopsy. And that I'd need intrallipid infusions, injections and prednisone.

    She doesn't have kids, was unable to and has had a partial hysterectomy as she had problems with really bad endo.

    Her response to my diagnosis so far was...
    "do you really want to do all that? Might be easier to adopt. Cos even after all that you can't guarantee you will get a bub. Just get a hysterectomy and life will be sweeter, best thing i ever did. I just think - if it was me, take a hint and move on. Time to think other plans. But yep see how the hospital trip goes, just don't get your hopes up and get started with adoption while young cos as you get older, less options of age groups etc. I am in my mid forties - i couldn't think of anything worse than doing the kid thing now for me. Have back up plans ready, it's not the end of the world. Get your answers and go from there BUT don't do emotional decisions, think rational."

    Now...I know she means well, i know she's had failed ivf rounds. She didn't go down embryo or egg donation paths. And I know I should look at it positively.

    There's a really really really big part of me that thinks - How friggin insensitive! Who the frig says these things to someone going through what I am. ggggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
    Just because you've come to terms with not having kids, you are 47, i turn 45 at the end of the year, I'm in my mid forties - does that mean I shouldn't be having kids that it's a bad thing to do in your mid forties? OMG!

    Should I take this as a hint?
    Should I go back to greece and try donor embryos again?
    Am I wrong to want to try again?
    I should at least wait to see that there isn't any worse results from the hysteroscopy and uterus biopsy shouldn't I?
    I shouldn't be questioning myself should I?
    I am a single woman, technically taken as I have a boyfriend (feels like a wrong word to call him when i'm in my 40s lol) of 10months. We haven't even talked about the next step after my surgery. Adoptions are usually in favour of a married couple, and it takes a bloody long time for the adoption to go through and you usually have to go through fostering to start the process from what i've read. Does said BF want to try adopting? I don't know - haven't even had the conversation about it.

    So many questions and all my self doubt started with letting my older sister know. I thought she'd understand knowing she'd been through what she has with infertility issues of her own.

    I think i'm blowing it all out of proportion.

    Sorry. Rant over. Just felt the only place I can have this convo is with people who understand.
