Hello~ I was diagnosed with endometriosis three years ago. At the time I knew nothing about it and basically just let the doctor do what he thought was right. After surgery they prescribed birth control which left me an emotional and physical wreak, worse than the endo symptoms. I gave it up after a month cause I had lost so much weight and just didn't want to live miserable any longer. After six months the cysts were back again. I decided to go the natural route and kept it up for a year, but life problems made my stress level go really high. Recently the pain has become almost unbearable and I've been having chest pain and trouble walking. Got examined and the cysts are already the size they were three years ago. It's difficult to even go on a short vacation, much less work a real job and I'm still only in my mid twenties. It feels pathetic constantly whining about the pain and emotional problems. It's hard to keep up a decent friendship with my hormones all over the place like this. The amusing part is everything I read about says my libido should be nothing but that's the only thing I don't have a problem with, but then I don't have any use for it anyway. It's just so exhausting, especially the emotional aspect...how do you live like this?
