I'm so down today...


My boyfriend was here this weekend and it really did cheer me up knowing I didn't have to go through things by myself.

I don't really know why I look forward to weekends anymore because I spend them crying and lying in bed.

I'm in pain at work or at home and I'm sick of it.

With the suspected endometriosis I have, i'm in pain a week before my period, the week of my period and the week after and tomorrow I'm due on and I'm absolutely dreading it. I don't have energy for anything and I just need constant reassurance and care off my boyfriend.

All of this is making me so depressed and I'm not even sure if this is going to get sorted anymore :(

Just wanted to message to say your not alone, there's so much support on here.

I understand how isolating this illness is though!

Have you had a laparoscopy or on any medication to help with the pain?

I find mefenamic acid helps take the edge off the horrendous pain.

Here if you want to talk.

Hi Jade,

Thanks so much for replying. It just gets so hard when the pain is constant. It's effecting my ability to go to work and I feel so guilty.

I'm booked in for my laparoscopy 2nd week of March.

No problem!

Yeah I completely understand, unless people have gone through it they don't really understand the pain.

Ahh that's good it's not too far away.

Things will hopefully start moving once you have that done. You finally get answers and then you can plan what treatment to have next.

Good luck for your lap, let me know how you get on

Thanks so much for actually caring!

I cannot wait for this lap, I really don't think I can put up with this amount of pain much longer :(

I'll keep my profile posted! X

Are you under a gynocologist?

I have an appt with mine tomorrow to discuss my options. I have a 5cm cyst on my left ovary. I either have a follicular cyst that will go away on its own or I have endometriosis. I am taking strong painkillers while at work. I work in a nursery so I have no option but to take tablets daily because I am on my hands and knees all day. I will probably have to undergo some form of surgery to check if I have endometriosis or not because I definitely know that my cyst has not gone away And I've had it for several months now. I know how you are feeling because I'm feeling just the same. If you need to talk to someone I'm here.

Thank you so much for your message.

I was referred to the priory so I thankfully have a private gynaecologist.

I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this pain too :(

Thank you so much.

Maybe it's just one of those days today because I'm feeling the same too. It's so hard.. Try and stay positive though! You have your laparoscopy booked so that's the next step. I'm still on pill trial which isn't working and haven't even discussed laparoscopy or dates or anything yet in detail so that's what I'm gunning for even more now. Hope everything gets sorted soon for you!! Xx

Thank you so much.

It doesn't help being overly emotional I guess hahah.

Counting down the days until my lap!!

I hope you get sorted soon, if it carries on urge your GP/gynaecologist because with me I noticed that my doctor tried to dodge it a bit.

I hope things get sorted for you.
