It's Been The Longest Year Of My LifeI have been diagnosed with endometriosis for a little over a year now and have been bleeding non stop for the same amount of time. Waking up on the heavier days of it to rush to the bathroom or to find I'm too late makes me incredibly upset. I'm 26 and have no social life outside of going to school to try and finish my degree. Endo is effecting far too much of my life and I'm tired of it. I can't workout on a regular basis which is mandatory to keep my high blood pressure at bay and on top of that I've gained weight making it worse. The extreme back pain keeps me from even walking or standing for long enough to clean around my house. To really make my story worse I have no medical insurance and have to go to a county clinic who barely help me manage my blood pressure let alone my constant bleeding and pain. Will there ever be an escape for me....the thoughts of having a hysterectomy before I'm 30 is the scariest thing to me but I can't even have a love life with this disease.
