Is anyone currently at Uni, or doing a course with the OU (Open University)?
I wondered how you've found it handling both at the same time, with the pains and the chronic fatigue?
I was diagnosed in June with mild endo, and I've noticed in the past 6 months my fatigue is getting out of control - i fall asleep by 8pm and just cant get my brain to function during the day whilst I'm trying to get on and do my uni work. I only work 5 hours a day (childminder so mainly school runs) so have 4 or 5 hours in between to get lots done, but I've really struggled lately - even failed my exam because i found i was sleeping all day instead of revising.
I just didn't know if the university took you seriously? I really feel like with this disease that they just think 'oh...period pain.... it cant be that bad' and thats it.
Hope your all feeling okay today though!
