It’s an everyday battle against fatigue, weight gain, and the worst of all pain.
It is something that affects every part of your life constantly, and that in itself can be really hard to deal with.
Some days are good. But for half a month every month, the pain is excruciating. You live your life wondering if this birth control will help more than another one.
Or if getting surgery will help you for a longer period of time. The saddest part of it all, though, is you will most likely have to deal with it forever.
Until you decide you want to take out all your girl parts down there, which in itself is a very scary realization because even then they can’t guarantee that you will stop having pain.
It’s hard because it can affect whether you can get pregnant, especially if you get cysts on your ovaries.
It’s hard because you feel like no one understands the pain you go through on a daily basis.
You try to explain how endometriosis is a condition where the lining of the uterus doesn’t fully expel from your body every month like it should. And it then gets stuck on other parts of your body causing terrible pain.
But again, that’s hard to say over and over. Because you always get the, “can’t doctors fix that? question.
Endometriosis sucks because it’s hard to try and lose weight, and sometimes it makes you feel so tired for absolutely no reason. Which kills you on the inside because you are not a lazy person.
You wish you could explain easily what it is like to live with endometriosis, but it’s hard when others don’t have it.
But just remember you are not alone. There are a ton of women out there who can relate to you. Who you can confide in and who understand, 1 in every 10 women to be exact.
It could be worse. And if you can remember that, you will get through the bad days.
You will get over the fact that you can’t control how your body looks and feels sometimes, but that’s okay.
Because no matter what, you have people who love you. And you also have people dealing with the same thing you are. You just have to go out there and find them.
Endometriosis is not fun. It is painful.
It makes your emotions a mess and it stresses you out about the future. Especially, if you want kids…
But just know, you are surviving. You are pushing through this chronic illness every day and you are an amazing example.
You show everyone that no matter their health problems they can get through them and that is something to be proud of.
You try your best every day and that is all you can ask for. So be proud of yourself and remember to always keep moving forward.
