The Everyday Struggle

First comes the fear. It’s the type of fear that is constantly running through your mind, asking yourself questions over and over again.

You fear for what the next day holds and what will come of it. Next comes the confusion. Why is this happening? Did I do something wrong? Why me? You never really get an answer to these questions. They just sit in the back of your mind like a rain drop on a petal. Last is the anger. The pure frustration you feel built up inside you and you just don’t know how to release it all. But somehow you keep this all invisible on the outside. No one sees, no one knows.

This is endometriosis.

    So true: we tend to keep our endometriosis very much to ourselves. Wouldn’t it be nice, though, if we could share this with others, without being judged? If endometriosis was a better known and understood disease, we could tell other about our struggles and not feel so alone.

    Hope you find like-minded people to be open about this illness here on this forum. There’s a lot of information and support.
