My heart goes out to everyone on this site. I also suffered a lot if pain, lost friends and family over this due to the fact I became secluded. Missed out on a lot of beautiful moments in life due to constant waves of pain. Struggling through a new marriage that occurred when I had surgery (had endometriomas removed) and thought pain was gone but now returned. Will have hysterectomy September 22, due to endometriosis and a 3cm firoid. Suffered so long don't know how it feels to be normal. Pain, depression, and anxiety has left me exhausted. Just missed my brother wedding yesterday due to pain. My heart goes out to everyone dealing with this❤❤❤❤❤ pray this surgery works ( had so many) miss my family, friends, working and myself prior to diagnoses. Tired of some people making you feel the pain is all in your head. Ladies, I'm so glad I'm not the only one suffering. I also have been suffering for years. Miss my job managing an Alzheimer's unit, hanging out with friends, family, and my new husband. Used to love going shopping for clothes, now stretch pants and t-shirts became my best friend not to mention the couch. I'm hurting right now. Hugs to all of you and know I believe your pain when others do not.
