I found this forum while researching endo online. I was diagnosed 2 years ago, had a lap 18 months ago which removed a substantial amount of endo and then a mirena coil fitted after to stem the bleeding. I've been trying to give the coil a chance but, while the bleeding has stopped, the pain is worse every month. The deep ache I live with every day is accompanied by a sharp stabbing in my abdomen and back and I get so tired I could cry. I feel so happy to have found somewhere where I can honestly say, for the first time in 12 years (I am 26) that this is too much for me, I can't cope with the pain anymore and I don't know what to do. I am so tired of putting on a brave face and trying to pretend I'm not struggling. It makes me feel like I'm not normal. I caved in last night and went to A&E only to be made to feel like a waste of time and told there's nothing wrong with me. I started counselling last week and it's been really helpful but what I would love is to see other people's stories and to know I am not alone because sometimes it really feels that way. I would be grateful for any replies ♡ Xxx
