Hello, I have about 1 million Naira saved and I am confused on what to do. Because of the peculiarity of my situation, I can’t think rationally and I would appreciate if I read from someone else.
1. Freeze my eggs;
2. Get a PhD in a Nigerian University; or,
3. Go on a vacation?
I have stage 4 endometriosis which is tied to infertility. It is the most severe and has spread to some other organs. I am a 30 year old and not in any relationship at the moment.
At the same time, I have been through a lot recently. A family member has a terminal illness and there’s been a divorce in the family. Me too have been in the hospital a couple of times. I’ve had some emergency admissions and one surgery. I don’t have friends/a social life (because of school/work) and I would love to cross out something from my bucket list, on vacation. Lastly, I recently picked up interest in a particular (very, very, lucrative) topic in my field that I would like to develop a career from. What should I do?
