hi girls
I just wanted to let you know that we have come to a decision that it is the 'end of the road' for us both...We saw the consultant today and it gave us some sort of closure to end having more treatment.
I am not sure if i accept it yet, but i know deep down in my heart that for us to have any form of life to enjoy, then this is the only way forward..
To be honest i never thought i would be the one looking at a child free future and its as if your worst nightmare has come true. But i feel that we have now made the right decision. Although it was hard and there was alot of soul searching we eventually got there. I must admit i am alittle scared and apprehensive about our future, but atleast i have a great dh and good friends.
I must say that this thread has been the most supportive and i have found such solace from you girls and i thank you for that..
Thanks for all your help...
lots of love astridxxx

Hi Astrid

I guess your "one for the road" isn't to be.

You always seem to give such sound, balanced advice to others I just wanted to say look if you can look to the future with your great dh in the same sound, balanced way I'm sure you'll find happiness. Perhaps not necessarily were you expected to find it, but I'm sure it'll be there for both of you.

Good luck

dear all
Thankyou so much for the support and lovely kind words, i was really touched...
I hope to meet up sometime with you all in the future..
I am finding it quite a relief that we will not be going down the ivf route again...so that is a positive outcome already...
Also i am sure you understand, that it is about taking one day at a time. Also we are now starting to spend money on alternative things other than tx. Plan more holidays and surround ourselves with good friends.
The bad days well thats not something to look forward to, but i am sure it will get easier with time.....as many of you girls have pointed out on this thread....
Thanks all for being there, it makes you feel not so alone.....
lots of love astridxxxx
