My Endo Journey

I started treating symptoms of my endo when I was only 17 and was diagnosed with it at 20 via a laparoscopic surgery. I dropped down to taking college classes part time that semester in the hopes I’d be able to find a treatment for endo and knock out the pain I’m experiencing. That set me back in my college career goals-I am set to graduate this year but it’ll be my 5th year in college. I also have yet to find a solution for my endo. I have tried all kinds of hormone treatments (they were awful), I’ve done surgery as I mentioned, physical therapy, acupuncture, pain medications, etc. and nothing has helped. I am nearing the end of my resources and with my graduation approaching I won’t have the same resources available to me anymore so it is getting to be very discouraging. All this time though I’ve never let it stop me from achieving my goals-school and otherwise and I won’t let that happen now. I like the saying that it doesn’t matter how slow you go as long as you don’t stop. I would love any prayers and well wishes and I’ll be sending them your way as well. God bless everyone! Thank you for listening to my story.
