Today my best friend of five years turned around and told me that she spoke to her mum, who is a nurse in the ICU, and they both think I've been misdiagnosed. They said that people with endo aren't in pain unless they're actually bleeding and the amount of pain killers I'm on I shouldn't have bowel movements. They said that I should get a second opinion before I go ahead with my lap and I should change doctors.
She's also said that I'm nowhere near chronically ill because I still manage to go see my boyfriend a lot, even though all I do there is lay and sleep in his bed mostly, and that I have a high chance of having children so I should stop being so dramatic.
I'm fairly confident that I have endo, doctors and gyno have told me that I do and I have medical records of trying to get a proper diagnosis since I was 13.
I think because the pain has hit me so hard like she's never witnessed before, she thinks I'm just being over dramatic.
How do I explain that she needs to just shut up and be supportive? I just want to throw something at her right now for her ignorance.
