I'm a 23 year old with endometriosis and PCOS. I struggle everyday with the pain. I use to be outgoing and active but since my 3rd surgery, I find it hard to even stand up somedays. I also have hypothyroidism which I will have to take medicine for the rest of my life. Somedays I feel like it would just be easier to see into the future and know either way if I'm about to have children. If it's not even possible then I don't want to put the rest of my life on hold while endometriosis attempts to tear my body apart. Does anyone else ever feel like this? I'm looking for a support system that I can lean on and talk to. Most of my old friends are not around much since I'm always hurting and canceling plans so it would be amazing to have someone to talk to that actually understands.

I've got endo and definitely have days when I think I can't keep going through this. I'm 34 and only got diagnosed with it when I was about 30, but I've had symptoms and docs telling me I just had IBS since I was about 16. I'm probably due to go back for another lap as I can feel it getting worse, but I'm waiting until later in the year before I go back to my specialist as we are currently ttc our second bub. Most months I get constant dull aches from Ovulation to AF and the pain runs down my thighs. It makes everyday things like work, exercise etc so much harder.

My situation is little different I only have mild endo but I have another friend who has it worse than me.. We both haveseen anamazing nauropath which has had us on a herbal mix which has ensured our endo has no grown back! Definitely worth looking into.
