I am 26 years old and was diagnosed with severe endo. If you know me I am all about the little ones! Ever since I was a little one myself my great grams would tell stories about taking me to the mall, a store, or anywhere. Anytime I had seen a little baby I would stop what I was doing and run over to the baby and talk to it. I guess I just had a natural love for children. In the future I would love to get into teaching.
This year I was eating diner with my grandparents when this pain came over my body and basically disabled me, I have no other description for it. I started freaking out, I didn’t know what was happening to me. My grandpa ended up taking me to the ER and there they gave me some pain medicine, sent me home, and stated that if I have the pain after three days to contact my doctor.
I knew something wasn’t right. The doctor thought I was just being over reactive about menstrual cramps!! In the mean time I was still in terrible pain and missing work, which I don’t do. I went to the doctor a few days later and she asked me a few questions. She sent me directly back to the hospital (a different one). She ordered test after test and told me I was a healthy girl but she could tell something wasn’t right with me!
The results came back and I was diagnosed with a blood filled cyst. The pain came back for two months randomly. Finally I went back to my doctor and said I wanted it removed. While they were removing the cyst they checked for endo. I found out later I have endo and it is severe. I want children more than anything! Now we wait. I have six months until my next appointment. I’m hoping it will be for a baby appointment not an endo appointment :((
