Last month I thought to myself this can't be normal, all women can't be dealing with this all the time. can they? I went to my dr, I made the appointment with a female as advised by my counsellor and do you know what? She didn't really listen. "Oh yes painful periods, here's a prescription" translation = shoo, your time's up,NEXT!
|If she had listened she would have heard that I have been keeping a pain & symptom diary, the charity, Endometriosis UK give you this pack where you circle where the pain is.|
Or you go private, and who has the dough for that?! I decided to try and see if I can help myself in some way. I am currently reading this book. Already, I feel like I know a lot more. DH & I will be writing a letter to the GP surgery so I get the laparoscopy needed to see what's going on.
For now though I have prescription pain killers, hot water bottles & a little bit of hope.
Practically, I survived today because my sister came over to help with Ethan. She is an angel & I am truly blessed that it is half term.
