I was diagnosed with stage 2 endometriosis when I was 15 years old. I have gone through so much in my battle against endo.
Now I’m 18, and since my diagnosis I’ve had three surgeries in three years. I have taken multiple birth control pills, and the Lupron shot. The shot put me through a hell of a menopause, all my hair fell out, and I weighed only 95 lbs. Through all of this, I’ve been in constant blinding pain.
Now I have stage 4 endometriosis. I’ve still not been able to find relief, and it’s affecting my life greatly. I can’t work, can’t go to college, and even daily activities are a trial.
I hope to one day be pain free, even if I can’t have children. I’ve been in so much pain for so long. :/
