Anyone else feeling like the fertility journey is just too much and like theres always constant obstacles in the way!? Ive just found out the clinic we have been referred to and already waited so long for, has had its license suspended following inspection! So now I don't know what that will mean for our referral and have no clue where to go from here. Could go privately but we think my husband will need surgical sperm retrieval and I believe the clinic we were going to is one of the only places locally that offers that. I feel like friends and family are trying to be supportive but don't know what to do or say to help and I just get more angry with their comments sometimes. Our GP is no help. Sorry just needed to vent my frustration to others who might understand

You may need to be firm with people so that they understand your boundaries. This journey is listening to advice when you need or ask for it. Most importantly giving yourself time to process feelings. Jumping to the silver lining can be frustrating to hear. You’ve got this. I’m glad you are feeling better today. Drop me a message anytime if you want to chat xx

Thank you. I feel like this is exactly what I needed to hear. I feel a bit better after sleeping on it and ready to face the next step of our battle. I feel as though family and friends just want to come up with a solution and they start saying try this, do this without really thinking and it just adds to my stress. I know it's coming from the right place but sometimes you just need reassurance or someone to listen rather than telling you what to do ❤️

Hey! Whatever you’re feeling is temporary. The obstacles are temporary. Feel what you need to feel and then act on what you need to do next. I’m so sorry it’s not been an easy time for you. The suspended license could be for a short amount of time. Perhaps look into other private clinics. I’ve found with family and friends to not talk to them about my journey. They don’t really understand. I use them for support for taking my mind off things though and that is also important. Sending you much love ❤️
