Fragile to Unbreakable
I have suffered from major pain with my period for as long as I can remember every time I would talk to my doctor about it she brushed it off so I thought I was just extremely weak for several years.
The pain was so bad
I would get fevers, throw up, and faint from the pain but I thought it was normal. In 2019 I had a miscarriage and my symptoms became much more severe I talked to a friend and they suggested I could have endometriosis. I had never heard of Endo at that point so I looked it up on my phone and I could relate to everything.
I finally got some answers
I made an appointment and begged to be checked for it and later that year I was diagnosed with stage 3 endometriosis. It was so relieving to feel heard and learn that I am not weak. I am actually extremely strong for what I go through every day. If it weren't for that friend I don't think I would have ever been diagnosed. This is a disease I've never heard of before and I know so many others can relate.
