I don't know if I'm the only one. It sounds odd but when I was diagnosed with endometriosis I couldn't talk to anyone about it. I'm 22 and telling my father was just cringe seeing as though it all stared mainly with pain when my fiancé and I were doing things that my father would not want to know abit lol
I find it difficult to even say to anyone except my mum fiancé and best friend how much pain I'm in. When I am in pain or have a pain and it's noticeable to anyone they ask and I end up saying "oh I've just got a bad belly"... How childish. I think endometriosis effects such a private area of our bodies that the thought of getting into an awkward convosation with just anybody and having to explain a condition that effects mainly our reproductive organs it's just not worth the hassle of try to make them understand.
* am I just rambling or does this make sense to anyone :/ *
Maybe this is why there is such little awareness...? I mean if I had another condition such as I don't know really because I suppose explaining to people anything that's not "normal" is embarrassing?
Anyway my point is I wish I had the guts to just say! seeing as though people who hardly know me can be rude enough to say something like "your too young to have hot flushes" ... *ahem try having these zoladex implants every month they are not natural*
Hmm so what do you think girls it's got me thinking maybe that's why I like being on here everybody understands and isn't embarrassed.
