I'm facing a decision about more surgery, so I thought I'd go along to an endometriosis support group, expecting it to be helpful. I found that there was a competition going on as to who had the most pain, who'd had had the most operations, who'd had the biggest cyst... One woman even said she wished she had cancer because then she'd get some sympathy from her friends! Be careful what you wish for. I haven't gone back. I'm wondering whether to try another group or if this sort of thing commonly occurs and is there any value in it?
