Hi ladies! I've been suffering with extensive and extremely painful endo for years now however was only properly diagnosed in January. I've had two ops, was on zoladex and now after being so fed up and desperate for children, me and my partner have decided to try and have one! However I have just been offered my dream job in a veterinary hospital and I'm so scared about going back to working a 40 hour week whilst trying to manage the even worse pain (now I am not on the contraceptive pill which helped a bit). Most days I can just about manage with pain relief however the first day of my period is the most intense, sickening pain and no amount of pain killers can get me out of bed! I have quite a high pain threshold however even this makes me cry and be sick because of how bad it is.
My problem is, do I tell my employer about my problems when I start so that she is aware? Or do you think they could get rid of me straight away? I know for a fact that this one day a month I will be totally incapable of working however because my periods are not always regular, I cannot even ask them to give me that certain day as one of my days off.
I'm really stuck at what to do as I cannot afford to loose this job as me and my partner have just got our first house together!
