Just wondering if anyone else has developed anxiety due to endo and pcos? I now find sitting in a doctors waiting room hard and it gets so bad I have to have someone accompany me to all my appointments. I cry the whole way through them and i can’t help it ! I have to have another lap this will be the second within a year and safe to say I’m terrified but this leads me to think about it at night and then when the pain hits which is always at night I end up awake until stupid o’clock until the painkillers work.
I get anxious more so now because of last time l was admitted to hospital (October) after being in a lot of pain and was put on surgery assessment then moved because it was late , shouted at by a gyne for being in pain because i was just having a period, another gyne told me it was ibs and then another gyne told me I needed to go to the toilet! They then wanted to send me home even though I was in a lot of pain could barely walk. They hadn’t done any scans until I kicked of and asked for one when they found I had another cyst burst ! No one apologised the head gyne told me I had a chronic illness and I had to get on with it and not let it get on top of me ! Ps all of the gynaecologists were male and all of them are noobs!!!!!
Advice please about how to cope with the crippling anxiety and the crappy sleep? Sorry for rambling but I needed to get it if my chest and none of the family can give advice xx
