It's my first time posting here. So we have just started family planning as a same sex couple and are navigating the world of iui and ivf. I've started having appointments off for scans test etc and my boss and the rest of the HR team are curious about the appointments.
I'm the only HR person of a small company and they are very dependent on me in the sense of there is no one to cover me when I'm off. I'm feeling more and more overloaded work wise and starting to get anxious about not being able to keep up with the added pressure of the appointments and time off. To add to the pressure im dyslexic and only my boss knows I'm a lesbian and dyslexic as I'm worried about being discriminated against and dont want to be outed to the company via the appointments.
Has anyone else been in a similar situation and if so how did you juggle everything?
I'm conscious that stress is not good for conceiving or for my dyslexia or just mental health in general. It's funny, I'm always advising others but when it comes to myself I get a bit lost.
On the Mumsnet Donor Conception forum, you can discuss sperm and egg donation with people in the same situation.
