I’ve been feeling tired all the time and depressed for a while now, I can’t figure out if I’m tired because of the endometriosis, or I’m depressed because I have endometriosis and that makes me tired. I don't know which is causing which, but either way it’s making me feel more and more withdrawn from life. The fact that I don’t know if I can have sex (because of the pain) makes things worse. I guess it’s made me feel scared at the prospect of intimacy and I have put some kind of barrier to meeting new people, even though I don’t want this.
It's a downward spiral for me and I don’t know how to get energy to come back up. How do you cope with a lack of energy and depression? Answers much appreciated.
