Hi all

I'm feeling so very very low. I've been diagnosed with Endo for perhaps 5 years now. I've had 10 operations and finally thought enough is enough.

Long story short - I had very painful periods when I was younger, as a result I went on Depo. Stopped my periods, ended up with bad depression, lost my job and was at the lowest point of my life. I came off Depo, low moods went, bad periods returned and a couple years later I'm diagnosed with Endo.

After 10 ops, monthly trips to A&E I finally gave into my 'I'm never taking hormones again' stance and 4 weeks ago stated Desorex. I had a bleed that started 9 days ago, hasn't stopped and for the last week I've had no interest in work and now here I am in bed in tears.

I don't know what to do anymore, please help.

Hello dear,

I cannot imagine what you must be going through, so i cannot offer any advice, just support. Don't let this defeat your spirit. You're more than just your body. Keep your hopes alive for the good days that come, and for a time when you can live pain and complications free.

Sending a big hug from Switzerland! :)
