I haven't been on here for a while, been very much trying to live life not defined by my Endo. I'm stage 3, lap Nov 2015.
I've had a very significant week this week, I had a conversation with my boss about reducing my hours due to 4 days a week as I'm no longer coping with the pain and working full time.
Its like I've finally had to accept this horrible disease has taken my career. Up to the age of 30 my career was my everything, at 31 I had my lap and at 32 I had suspected Thyroid cancer and had half my thyroid removed along with the tumour(luckily it was benign) life hasn't been the same again. I'm no longer capable of achieving my dreams. My fatigue and pain rules my life, I'm so tired and broken. But I fake being well, people see me doing lots of things and think I'm living a great life. They don't see the other side of things, I am a good actress when it comes to my health.
I now have 2 suspicious lesions on my liver, so at the start of yet another health battle.
I wanted to ask how others on here deal with the acceptance? Have you found ways to cope with accepting this is your lot? accepting that my endo and other health issues are holding me back is so hard.
My GP said to me a couple of weeks ago, I'm fighting it....I need to accept with my combination of conditions I'm not likely to feel well again. That really sucks 😕
