I wanted to pose a question out there.
How do you emotionally handle a "roadblock" or two or three along the path of IF?
IF in itself is a roadblock, I realize, but it is so hard when you've come this far and something makes you forced to take a month off, some new prob. gets discovered, a canceled cycle.
... My acup. says when you get to the fert. treatment stage, you're ready to sprint to the finish line, but often it's more of a long distance marathon. Sigh.
Any sage words out there? I meditated through the first year and though there were many low points, I was much more resilient. TIA!
Well, I, like you, haven't been through as much as some on this thread, but I have definitely experienced some "roadblocks." From having to wait 3 months for an appointment with the endocrinologist (not an RE, but a regular endo), to DH having to do yet ANOTHER SA, just to get to the point that we have a baseline on where we both stand fertility-wise so that we can figure out what the next step needs to be.
For me, I've started taking yoga and started making changes in my diet (I'm not perfect, but I am trying to find a way to eat more veggies and whole grains and less sugar and white flour). In my case, I feel like doing these things while I'm "waiting" still moves me a little bit further toward my goal-- making my body healthier and stronger and more ready/ able to carry a child.
I think your acupuncturist is right on, but I don't know if there's a way to make it easier to endure. There are just some things out of our control, things that we can't manage, just find a way to cope with. So... come here, vent, cry, breathe, and do what you need to to get through it
