These are just some of the things I have had thrown at me by doctors, family members and friends. Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women in the UK. [maybe some more facts that help explain why the above are bad things to say. eg common myth that it is only painful with periods but the triggers of pain are complex and so can happen any time or something; why trying to give false hope isn’t as nice as you probably think you’re being; etc]
Update on my endometriosis journey It’s been a year since I was diagnosed with Endometriosis, yesterday I got a surprise call with a date for my operation to try and improve it, I literally forgot I was even on a waiting list. I feel hopeful and relived the operation is finally happening.
