Currently recovering from a laproscopy - endo was ablated, adhesions removed, ovaries were fused to pelvic wall and detatched, also had mirena coil fitted.
For the years I've been dealing with endo, I have lost many friends who do not understand when I say "sorry I'm not well.... again" family members would just say "oh are you hungover did you have a good night?" and no matter how I explain, they just don't get it! And not to mention the amount of times I hear "but you don't look sick"
since I've had my op 2 weeks back, a cousin of mine came up and actually asked what they had done, so whilst explaining it, I was interrupted and told "oh I had that once, they were removed and i'm fine! you'll be fine and back to normal soon" - that was it conversation over. as well as having another family member saying they knew someone who had it once and they were fine
SO the point of my rant here, is anyone else fed up of having these little digs and questions where they just don't get it!?
how (if at all) does anyone cope with no one understanding and with people saying things like this to you?
any help / suggestions are welcome - really getting to me lately am fed up with it.
even my closest friend hasn't been to see me since my op - am I selfish to think she should have been to see me?
