I was diagnosed with endometriosis in October last year following a lap to check suspected appendicitis (appendix healthy but removed anyway). Since then I've had regular bouts of abdo pain often lasting days and it's getting worse. Got a gyne referral and they suggested taking the pill back to back with a review in 3 months. Have to say that so far it seems the lack of week off my pill has left me with increased pain not less.
Trouble is I am a month and a half into a new job and have already taken 2 sick days and been sent home again today because of pain. My managers really good but I'm worried she's going to get fed up of me keep needing time off. And even though my manager is great the rest of the team aren't as good.
I feel useless and pathetic. I was diagnosed with depression 3 years ago and worry this has made it worse still. My fiance says things like are you sure its not all in your mind and my mum tells me I need to try harder and these are the 2 people I can rely on for anything. I feel so isolated and don't know what to do.
Any tips or advice on dealing with feeling like this?
