Hi i'm Charlotte and I'm 19 years old and I live in Banbury, near Oxford. I was diagnosed with endometriosis last year when I was 18 but been having symptoms since I was 17. Ive had one laparoscopy and it has come back again recently but been advised not to have another operation because I'm so young so I should "save" them. I had the physical pain i have to go through but more than anything then emotional strain is horrible. I feel angry all the time for no reason and i go from being happy to sad back to happy and then angry and depressed and I just don't know what to do to make myself feel better emotionally. It is having an impact on the relationship with my boyfriend because I keep getting angry and irrational about things and taking it out on him and my continual mood swings and I just don't know what to do! Was just trying to see if anyone has any advise or just to try and find a friend as well to be honest as I don't personally know anyone with it so it feels like no one understands, if that makes sense!
