I am 21 and was diagnosed with Endo March 2014 and have been doing pain management ever since, it was sold to me as something which would control it - so I was all happy! For the most part it worked, I got the odd twinge here and there but nothing like before... Until now... I had an appointment yesterday with my GP after feeling very drained and run down for weeks, having more and more migraines, fainting and severe pain - they think my endo has come back! I cannot explain how emotional and sad I feel. When I was first going through all of this, I found it very hard to go to uni - but it was okay because the only person I was effectively letting down was myself. Now that I have graduated and got a full time job I am at a stage where I feel, well, guilty. I have gone into work both yesterday and today to only be sent home due to the pain and discomfort I am in. I can't help but feel like I am letting them down - that I am not doing a good enough job and it is really effecting me mentally - am I the only one to feel like this? I feel so lonely and just well, sad! Is there anything I can do???
