Hope you are all as well as can be.
I've had a real bad week with endo, in bed for 3 days and just haven't got the energy to do anything. Even signed off work for the week as new supervision (female) has questioned me about how ill I am and what the symptoms are etc. It annoys me that people can be so ignorant and just think, oh its only period pain. How about the days of constant aching on ur hips, the completely drained feeling the whole week before you're due on, how about the crippling pain that keeps you up all night resorting to the strongest pain killers that you can possible have, which then knock you out making you feel like a zombie. How about the impact it has on family seeing you that way or having to change plans at the last minute, altering their life for you. How about the fact you are put on disciplinarian because of the amount of time off you have had, making stress set it off.
I'm sick of being fobbed off by the doctors too. Try this hormonal treatment, try that hormonal treatment. I DON'T WANT ANYMORE HORMONAL BLOODY TREATMENTS!!!! I have tried everything they have asked me to, I have researched on diets and exercise to try and help, all to no avail.
Yes I know I am young (27) I don't want kids, I never ever have done. Why not take the bloody thing out? I know that will.mean taking hrt for the rest of my days but it has to be better than going through this every month!
I have always had bad periods since I started (12) and they have progressively gotten worse. I don't want to go another 15 years of this crap month in month out.
