I'm in need of a serious pick me up today. This is the worst pain day I have had in a long time. It's feels as though someone is trying to pull my uterus out through my back.
Things have been getting gradually worse since my lap and excision 2 years ago and I guess I'm just feeling a bit sorry for myself. I have a gynae appointment on 12th October which I have had to fight to get. I ended up in A&E last month with severe pain and irregular bleeding and as soon as I mentioned I had endo they sent me home and told me to arrange a gynae appointment through my GP. Why is it that even though so many of us suffer daily with this stupid condition that no one takes us seriously??
I'm a medical student and I am currently supposed to be on placement but have had to take the day off due to pain. I've had to lie as to why I am off because I'm not on my period, I'm not "sick" but I just cannot find the right way to explain to people the pain I am in.
Every time I tell someone I have endo they say "aw that's where you get sore periods yeah?". No. It's where I suffer pain, fatigue and embarassement daily.
Sorry for the absolute rant today but I really am feeling hard done by. I'm only 23 and I feel 70 today lying on my sofa with a cup of tea and bag of jelly babies.
Hope the rest of you are having a better day than me 💜 Xxx
