I am so sad for you. I can just feel your sadness, anger etc. Sometimes it is all just too much. I'm sorry the dr today didn't say the same as the others, opening up the can of worms so to speak. It SUCKS that you can get so many different opinions on the same fibroid. How are you supposed to know who to trust etc. I wish I had better advice or at least could take you out for a cocktail!
I understand the $$ issue. IVF is tough and it is very hard to put all your eggs in one basket (pardon the pun). Having been through 3 IVF's with nothing to show for it, I would have a hard time telling someone to just go for it when the % chance isn't good at our age even without other "issues". It is a crap shoot and to the "just try again" people, it isn't that simple etc.
I do agree with Dee though that you should take some time off, see the therapist and see if you still feel the same about stopping once you've been removed from the day to day heartache of IF treatments/doctors etc. It is no one else's decision when you've had enough. I think it takes a strong woman to walk away from all this since we know what that means for the rest of our life. We can't go back in time and change that decision later on. I've always said that I felt I would know when I was done. You may be there and you have to trust yourself if that's the decision you want to make. I wish you much luck and hope that happiness comes to you soon in whatever form even if it is different that what we may have imagined.
