'Yesterday, my world held two distinct possible futures: the one with children and the one without. Today is Sunday. I sit on the cold bathroom floor, half-dressed, staring at the digital display. A big part of me knew already. I think I even knew when they gave me the little scan of it in there, the only souvenir I would ever have. A souvenir of my heart, my time and my £6,000... Because that's what it has been. My investment: my time, my tears, my heart, my body. Not his. Because it is all for me, I am told. All of it. For me. Not for him. Not for us, like he said in the beginning. Just for me. And the pressure has been unbearable.' 'Plastering Over the Cracks' brings the reality of the IVF process and the resulting challenges into sharp focus, through the eyes of a young woman on the verge of emotional collapse. Honest, brave, unflinching and incredibly moving - Carrie Sutton writes straight from the heart
