I'm not sure what I'm looking for with this post, I just feel very emotional today!
I don't know anyone else that has endometriosis so I feel that no matter how hard my parter and family try, they just don't quite understand.
I am currently awaiting my second Laparoscopy due to my endometriosis. I also have a retroverted womb and adenomyosis.
I just feel that at 21 years old I cant live a normal life anymore. I cant have sex anymore, I constantly need a wee and it hurts when I do (which means I have to go as soon as I need a wee.... very awkward at work and in university lectures! nevermind the cinema or car trips!). It feels like I'm in constant pain - and its not easy to tell people when or why you're in pain! All this leads to me feeling a bit bleak sometimes as this is my life now, it will never go away and I always worry about whether I'll have kids or not (I'd love to one day but I don't want to rush the decision... or not rush and regret it!).
It's really cheered me up to see such a great support network of people with the same problems as me!
It seems to me that endometriosis is such a horrible illness that effects so many women, and yet not many other people know enough about it!
Anyway... enough moaning, I'm not alone!
Thank you all for posting things for me to read and not feel so alone!
