Hi there, my names Mari i'm 21 and have just had my first laparoscopy and have had endometriosis confirmed. In a way i'm really happy about this - I finally know why im in pain or tired all the damn time. At the same time im at a bit of a loss of what to do? I have been signed off while these investigations have been going on and now the idea of going back to work is terrifying. But due to all of this I've been thinking maybe I should find something part time and go back to college to study something I really want to do? My current job is 9-5 office job, i need patience and really cant afford to be taking pills all day a work and really cant afford the odd few days off. My job is stressful and i need to be able to concentrate all the time.
The only reason i thought college was to study health and beauty, i love it and have always wanted to study it but it has seemed like such an 'out there' thing for me to do. i do need to be earning money but i think maybe if i study this i could get a part time job around it and once i am fully qualified i could start my own business and therefore work around my own abilities?
I feel like im having a breakdown and a continuous fight with myself over this, i know its what I want to do but i need to convince my grandparents its a good idea.
