Okay so I don't actually talk to my family about my problems or anything that's wrong with me. the only persons I speak to are my boyfriend and his mum - it's just easier and more comfortable for me. Anyway, I've just told them about the possibility of endometriosis and i've told them it isn't major, it just would explain a lot and i'e told them that i'd have to have the lap to confirm it. Again, told them it isn't major and it should be over in like a day or whatever but in all honesty I have no idea what i'm saying. I'm just telling them what i've seen for others and what i've read online. The endo the doctors do think I have and I will have to have the lap... But I have never had to go to the hospital for anything before. I've never had to have any kind of operation or absolutely anything, I'm absolutely clueless and honestly I have no idea what to expect. I'm trying to be strong not just for everyone I have to tell but for me too. I'm so embarrassed about being new to it all, i'm 21 years old and I feel like I should be prepared for whatever life throws at me but honestly I'm really not. I have no idea what's happening with my body and I don't know how to explain to anyone why I can't do certain things because of the pains!!! I just feel like I'm blagging it to everyone around me to show that I can handle this shit, whereas really I just can't.
