One thought on “Endometriosis has affected every system of my body

  • Thank you for this! I have suffered with endometriosis and adenomyosis for 23 years, and was only diagnosed 2 years ago. I didn’t think I was a candidate for endometriosis, because I had two healthy pregnancies. However, the unrelenting pain, the nerve pain, the gastro issues, back pain, abdominal pain, headaches, the numbness, the depression because no one believed what I was suffering from all sounds so familiar. I thought having a hysterectomy would get rid of my symptoms, but after 6 months of having it, the symptoms started creeping back. I have removed so much from my diet, changed my whole exercise routine, and made serious changes to my lifestyle to accommodate my pain. It’s exhausting. Just knowing that there are others going through what I have been suffering from for so long, and to finally have a name and proof that I do, in fact have a disease, makes me feel better. I’m still looking for a compassionate primary physician that can understand what’s going on with me, but hopefully with more awareness they will start educating themselves on this disease, too. So thank you! This gives me hope!
