Hey everyone, hope you are feeling as good as you can be. Last week was the first week of my placement and unfortunately it wasn't the best week for me. On the 2nd day, I woke up feeling terrible and threw up so I couldn't go in. I feel like I am sick so often these days, I'm so fed up with it! My supervisor is aware of my endometriosis and the university made sure she knew that I am fairly ill at the moment so she is supportive and expects that I will have days off, I just wish it hadn't of happened on my first week! Then on thursday night I ended up having to go back to A&E after a week of agony. I phoned 111 who called an ambulance for me. I was being sick pretty much the whole time I was in hospital, it seems like that is how my body reacts to this pain. I was discharged at 1am after they got my pain under control, but understandably was too ill to go into work the next day. I am quite worried that my supervisor thinks I am not well enough to do this placement... And the truth is I am not well enough really, but it is so important to me and I'm determined to succeed. I am upset that my endo is getting in the way. Today, I am seeing a gynecologist for the first time, so I'm really hoping they give me some answers and book me in for a laparoscopy. I will let you know how it goes. Sorry for my long post, I don't have access to the internet in my accommodation for placement so I am popping online every few days on my phone and trying to reply to people's posts when I can. Hope you are all doing okay, thank you for listening
