Awkward Times in my Life with Endometriosis

That’s certainly Awkward! It’s March, time to pull out my yellow ribbons and raise awareness for this disease called Endometriosis but

I’m Too tired from a seemingly never-ending endometriosis flare to raise awareness during Endometriosis Awareness month!

Oh I know something else that’s really awkward

A well meaning person suggested I try a particular treatment…hmm do I tell them that I a) tried the treatment, b) the side effects of a previously tried treatment means I no longer qualify for said treatment, or c) that the treatment goes against my plans

Oh yeah let’s not forget those people who suggest I have a hysterectomy or a child. I always wonder should I tell them how there’s no cure for Endometriosis even if you do hear about celebrities managing symptoms using certain measures.

That awkward moment when someone questions why I’m having symptoms when I was menstruating two weeks ago.

That awkward moment when someone with Endometriosis questions why our symptoms are not the same.

That awkward moment when someone tries to say Endometriosis.

Really, the word is a mouthful!

I know a lot about my dilemmas with Endometriosis and I have a lot of general knowledge about the disease; however, if there’s anything I’d stress about Endometriosis it is that the disease presents differently in everyone…

Be Aware but please try not to Be Awkward
