After more than 10 years of terrible pain I've reached the week before my lap and I'm panicking, what if it's not endo and it's some other horrific disease that's life threatening, or worse still what if I don't have anything and I'm losing my mind?
I was thinking back to when it all started and I can't pin point a particular date that I could empty my bowels without whincing or have sex without crying silently inside...
I do remember, as a daft curvy teenager that I fell in the image conscious trap of anorexia/bulimia/excessive exercise and my period vanished only to be pumped with hormones to restart my cycle and that whole episode got me thinking.... I'm not suggesting starving myself but rather than being a lab rat with zoladex/hrt and then the pill how about becoming uber fit and slim? Has anyone tried this and if so did they keep it up, is it safe re bone thinning?
I can't reiterate enough that starving ourselves is obviously not the answer but is there a healthy optimal weight in which we don't have to take artificial hormones to achieve amenorrhoea?
Also is there an endo register where we can add out history so that someone with a scientific background can work out if there is a correlation, is it dairy, baby formula, the pill, wtf is causing it?
I have 2 daughters and desperately want to protect them from endo.
If anyone has any natural treatment success stories please share them, I suspect I'm wishing for a miracle but just incase.
Thanks for reading my post, take care ladies xx
