Covid has been super challenging on all of us, it is simply dreadful.
It has been an immense stress factor for me as well, but also somehow the reason why I decided to speed up my decision about IVF.
As I had more time and not spending crazy hours in the office I realised how much I wanted a family and didn't want to postpone it any longer.
So I am considering of going abroad for IVF (I live in the UK) because
a) NHS has very long waiting lines and
I wanted to feel even for a tiny bit like going on holidays again!
So planning my trip and seeing all these beautiful beaches in Greece or Cyprus (have not decided yet where exactly) has really made me dream again of going there even for a medical procedure.
As for the general mental health impact I have found that running is super super helpful, even if you do really slow and for only 30 minutes, but it has to be every day.
Keep strong, it's a hard, sh***y time but it will pass soon!
