Hi, I was wondering how any of you cope with having endometriosis and going to work. I've found that I have no motivation to do anything, but obviously the big problem would be dealing with the pain if you get it at work. Have any of you lost a job, or had to give a job up because of endo?
Also, I live in the UK, does anyone know if there are any benefits for people who have endo and can't keep up a job? I don't have a job, but I'm in pain almost every day, so it'd be very difficult for me. I have horses, so I keep active through them, but sometimes while I'm in the middle of the chores I have to stop and give up, because of the pain. In those situations my mum takes care of the chores I've left, but I can't imagine they'd be that easy going in the workplace.
I don't want to do nothing for the rest of my life, as I have interests in certain careers that I'd like to pursue, so if any of you have any advice, that'd be great.
