Not so much needing advice ladies but more needing to let of some steam! Been really struggling trying to manage work and this condition, just had a good few weeks where I was actually starting to feel positive again about tackling this and now have been struck down yet again by hideous pain. Just come on my period and it's more painful than it's been for a while; I'm barely sleeping, crying every time I go to the toilet due to the pain and generally feeling low.
Had my first lap last sept to diagnosis and treat the endo found. Unfortunately I had a month if that of relief and it's been slowly getting worse ever since. It's now the worst it's ever been since even before the first lap I need another lap but due to work commitments just don't think this is a possibility for me atm. I have support for a few friends and my mum is a great support but I struggle with work colleagues, and other family members most don't seem to get the extent of the pain or just dismiss it with my favourite quote 'oh well you look ok' argh!!!
Sorry to go on just don't feel like anyone else is truly understanding how I'm feeling and how guilty I feel when I have to miss work.
