I'm sure this is something many of you suffer with, and I'm sure lots of ladies aren't even lucky enough to have that much relief but I've got to the point where my 'time of the month' is now taking up a large majority of it!
I suffer with awful pain, fatigue, emotional highs and lows, bladder and bowel problems for about a week before I come on and then all the above symptoms are joined with really heavy bleeding which often makes me physically sick and then when the bleeding stops, after about 7 days, I have a week worth of 'period hangover' feeling totally wiped out, feverish, aching and depressed.
I then have what feels like about a week when I'm feeling more positive, not feeling sick or as tired and I have a break from the feeling of my ovaries being ripped from my body.
I'm waiting for a referral to go back to the gynaecologist. I did have a lap two years ago where bowel and uterus lesions were removed.
I guess I'm just posting this to see if anyone else who suffers with this has a way of fighting it - mentally and physically.
