Would you go back to GP

Once again I'm not doing too well.

Long story short, I was forced into having an abortion just before my 18th birthday and have never really got over this.

Years passed and eventually I meet my DH, we decide to try for a family. I have several mmc which lead to a few years of fertility tests etc. They find out I have an abnormality with my uterus and this requires an operation. Following said operation and still no pregnancy we find that my tubes are blocked and so our only option is IVF. We have the standard 3 attempts on the NHS which fail as basically I am going through the menopause and so am told I will never be able to have children.

Now this was a few years ago but I can't get my head around this fact. My DH is very supportive but I get very down, which in turn causes him worry and stress. I feel so useless and worthless and have on several occasions told him I will leave and he can get on with his life, maybe with someone else. He always tells me to stop being stupid, he loves me etc. Some days it takes all my energy just to get up, let alone go to work etc.

Would you go back to the GP or just try and tell yourself to snap out of it.

You will not be able to snap out of it if you are ill. Go to the GP to find out whether you need treatment.

You don't have to feel like this.
