I am 27 years old and been diagnosed with mild endo for a year.
The pain since the lap has subsided as I have the hormonal coil and barely have a period but recently it has come back with a vengeance and my flares up are getting worse.
I have just started a new high profile job and have been tired a lot from this. More recently however I have been really struggling once my working week is done, it gets to the weekend and I am exhausted and all I want to do is sleep.
Today I slept for nearly 14 hours and I still feel so fatigued , is this normal?! I feel guilty for wasting what could have been a productive day and isolated and lonely as my friends don't understand why I can't just get in with it. I don't want to be one of those people that feels like they are defined by their illness but it is starting to take over.
Does anyone else really struggle with fatigue? I am usually a really happy go lucky person and I am fit and healthy and quite an active person. To waste a day lying around in bed is crippling me.
My endo is on my bowel and they couldn't remove it, whilst it's mild I am worried that it will continue to get worse. Can anyone offer any advice at all, I feel like I'm really starting to struggle.
Thanks so much!
