The Many Faces of Endometriosis

P1070423My Endo-Fatigued Face ”

…and yet, for most of that time I felt what Mills and Vernon in their book ‘Endometriosis, A Key to Healing And Fertility Through Nutrition’ describe thus: “Women often talk about being too drained to even talk to someone on the phone, and just wanting to curl up in a heap and sleep, until they feel well again.”

Cup of the after my third lap.  Heaven.

  1. I know all too well how you feel. So gutted and annoyed that it is seen as acceptable to let women live like this and not start putting research into how we can be helped! All i find is that the symptoms are treated and not the actual cause, painkillers day in, day out, ops to remove the Endo that is there and trying to mess around with hormones in an effort to help however where is the investment to find something that will fight it?

  2. Thanks for sharing. Your other blog about fatigue….I’m literally sitting on my couch in a heap as I read it. With no desire to get up to finish my laundry, do the dishes that are piled up, take out the piled up trash, or do my work reports I’m drowning In. All I want to do is close my eyes and make the world go away. I just want to get away from my world. I can’t even feed myself anymore. I’m in such a limited diet from all my sensitivities that I can’t go to a restaurant to get food, get pre packages food b/c it has everything I can’t have in it, and there’s no way I can stand at a stove and cook a meal for 30 minutes. So I have just stopped eating. It works since I’m nauseous anyways from my pain. What kind of life is this…
