How do you keep going?

Just wondering if anyone has tips on how to manage stress and keep sane through the insanity of infertility. Yesterday I had a down day and I went home and took it out on DH. I was crying and I told him how hard it is for me to help him raise his 2 daughters (it is a lot of work and a massive chunk of my life, and not as rewarding to do all that when the bond isn't as strong) and hard for me that he has children with another woman but not me. He gets really upset and says he is scared I will leave him like his last wife did, and it doesn't help things. I do this from time to time and I try not to but sometimes the pain and frustration just spews out. And the truth is, it is really hard for me to keep going and going, as days, months and years of ttc pass. Please help me, ladies. I'm drowning. How do you keep going on tough days?
