All I have to show for four cycles (since Jan. 9) are 10 or 12 extra pounds, and an increasingly difficult schedule to juggle between this and work.
I believe I am about to quit my job. I have a very responsible position, managing a business unit of a company, with 40+ employees here and overseas. It has been very stressful all this year, and I attribute the BFNs partly or perhaps wholly to the stress. Unfortunately, my character really won't allow me to "turn off" the job, even when I am not there, so it impinges on my entire life (I am often on the phone late nights, early mornings, weekends...) Should I just quit? DH says yes, but I am concerned both about the money and also about the loss of a major part of my identity.
I believe I will try just to get some time off, but you see, there isn't anyone else who can do my job, so I don't know how the place is going to function unless they actually replace me.
Best wishes to all,
