Anxiety, depression and Endo pain survey

Hey fellow warriors 💛🎗

I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis in 2011/2012, when I became worried that I hadn't fell pregnant during my 9year relationship. I also experienced strange pains and discomfort during menstruation and during other times which I put down to being 'normal.'

I was given a treatment surgery a year after diagnosis, which was beneficial for a good 9 months before it returned. I have since tried several contraceptive combinations for pain relief, but am currently on norethisterone which seems to be helping 🤞🏼

Still, my mental health suffers due to on-set of pain. I regularly experience anxiety, panic attacks and on-going depression. It is because of this I decided to investigate the pain experience of endometriosis and how it affects, and is affected by our psychological wellbeing for my dissertation at University.

To do so, I devised a short survey and was hoping you ladies wouldn't mind completing it? It is completely confidential and anonymous, I require no personal information and it can be done on a smart phone for your convenience 😄

Do you also suffer with your mental health? How does the pain affect your quality of life?

Thankyou in advance ladies 💛🎗

Done! I have anxiety, OCD and endo but they're all being treated so my answers for the current week perhaps don't reflect the pain/anxiety i've had in the past :) hope it helps, i know what it's like trying to get info on these things!
