Hi all, this is my first post here as i've just come across the site.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis at the end of May following 3 years of investigations and finally a laparoscopy. I've been told it was quite bad for my age and had caused one of my ovaries to become stuck to my stomach, my bowel to become stuck to something else, and quite a lot of endo found in and around my bladder and bowel.
Following the operation, I was put on the combined pill without any breaks and have been told to get the mirena coil fitted, which I am yet to do as am struggling to find the time around work etc. The pain initially went away however about a month after the op, annoyingly just after my follow up appointment with the consultant, the pains started coming back regardless of me being on the pill, and they've got progressively worse and now I feel like i'm right back to where I started and its making me feel really low and depressed and I just constantly feel like i'm on the verge of tears. To make it worse I often feel quite irritable and easily wound up.
The thing that is bothering me is that i've recently started a new relationship and we're just 2 months in and i'm scared that i'm going to drive him away for the way i'm acting. He's really understanding and knows all about it, and I trust him to be able to talk about it to him, but I feel so bad for how I am treating him and yet I can't seem to stop myself from acting the way I am.
Therefore, I need some advice on how I can stop feeling so low all the time and how to manage my anger. I really don't want to lose him. Please, can anyone help me? xx
