One of my oldest friends came to visit me yesterday after having a lap a week ago. Basically I had a full hyst' 13 years ago and yet at this recent they still found Endo. I have known her parents & family friends for years and one of their close friends was a GP who sometimes gave me medical advice once I was diagnosed with Endo. He is now retired and in his mid 70s and when my friend saw him recently she told him about my prospective surgery with a diagnosis of still further Endo. He told her that he thought I was suffering from Munchausens and then explained to her what it was. She rather tactlessly told me and after she'd gone I burst into tears I was so upset and I told my husband. He was really angry for me. Why has it upset me so much even though he is just another typical ignorant ex GP. I feel so low
