I'm pretty sure the endo is back full force.  I've got an appointment at the end of April with the doctor who did my surgery last summer, and I have quite a few questions for him.  I'm not going to give all the gross details here, but I wish I had other people who had it that I knew well enough to ask the gross questions.

Basically, at this point I hate being a woman.  Not because of sexism or anything like that, but because there's nothing good for me physically about being a woman.  I have boobs big enough that I can't wear button-down shirts or bras with underwires, they hurt when I run, and I have sweat issues in the summer.  And I have other parts that spend a quarter of my life making a huge mess and leaving me in pain and reuse to do what they were designed to do.

Is anyone out there who has endo willing to talk frankly about their symptoms?


  1. I had stage 2 endo until I had surgery in 2011 for a fibroid and my RE found endo at the same time. It explained so much. I have no problems discussing symptoms- feel free to shoot me an email- nonsequiturchica at gmail.

  2. I'll preface this by saying that I don't have endometriosis. But those who have written extensively about it (Leah Campbell immediately comes to mind) advocate for finding a physician who specializes in treating endo. Leah is very well connected. I would recommend reaching out to her directly for recommendations.
