Feeling very isolated

Hello all, I'm feeling very isolated and alone at the moment so thought I'd share here. I was diagnosed with cervical cancer nearly 3 years ago (I haven't got children) and had a hysterectomy. My husband and I were looking at surrogacy as an option and have been told it won't be possible for reasons I won't go in to here. So there are no options left to have a biological child of my own. I feel as if no one understands what I'm going through - a lot of my friends are having fertility issues but most of them are having success with IVF. Everyone around me is either pregnant, just had a baby or they've got options. It's not something I feel I can be honest about, because everyone is either pregnant or just had a baby! It hurts every minute of every day. No one seems to understand how difficult it is, but I thought some ladies on here might be in a similar position. My thoughts go out to you all x

Hello AB, I’ve just had my follow up meeting after CT and MRI, initially they thought I would need the surgery but radiochemo is now looking like the treatment plan. I am 37 years old and do not have children or a partner. I have watched lots of friends have children hoping I still had time..... it seems as if time has run out for me, I will not be able to have a child. I feel your pain, in solidarity. Xxx
