Hey guys, I was just after some advice from your own personal experiences if possible! Although I've been in pain for what seems like forever, I was only diagnosed last month. Unfortunately I had a lot of issues with my lap and I'm now off work until further notice.
How does everyone explain to friends, family, colleagues what's going on in their head when you don't know yourself? I haven't actually been given any information about endo so I've relied on websites and groups for support (until my follow up in march). I know it's not been long that I've had an official answer but, but my friends are so so so ignorant, no matter how hard I try to explain what's happened/happening.
Being off work is making me depressed (more so than normal haha) , and losing friends because I'm 'so blunt' at the moment and I'm 'off work, so why can't you reply to my messages quicker?' How can I get them to see I'm not just being moody, i not only have a disease but I've got a hematoma that is extremely painful... and that's just one of many post op complications. Being off work is driving me crazy and I don't think I've ever been so stressed in my life 😂 Any advice would be appreciated as I'm stuck on what to do next!
Thanks in advance x
