This post is inspired by the lovely comments I had to yeaterdays' blog.
One of the many frustrating things about endo is that most ladies with endo appear fine to those who don't look too closely. I've learnt that some people are really bad at reading body language. I'd guess roughly 50% of people would twig that something was wrong if they were talking to me. Clues such as clenched jaw, tense posture, unnatural stiff walking and controlled breathing are more obvious to some than others, even those who work in the medical profession.
People are genuinely shocked when I explain that I am in pain almost everyday. If I ever won the lottery (I wish!) I would fund a public information advert about the myths of endometriosis, and how to spot someone in pain. Until then I will take a deep breath each time I'm confronted with a myth and politely give the them the truth.
Couldn't risk taking codeine today as constipation has caused a tear; 50mg ami, cerezette, loratadine
