Over the past week a lot of good things have happened and some bad things as well. Life is full of ups and downs that we need to appreciate and conquer in order to continue living in peace with ourselves.
I have found many new friends and family through the creation of this page and so this post is both to explain my lack of blog postings and reach out for some help.
First-Papa is home! It is a huge stress relief to know he is feeling better and is back here where he belongs. Worry and stress don't exactly help with endo problems, but sometimes you need to put others before yourself-Papa is one of those people for me. He has always been there for me and now it is time for me to be there for him.
I will be attending the EndoWarrior meeting in NY on the 25th. I am excited to sit down and talk with other women in the same boat as me. It is very hard for me to explain how I feel and am hoping that I have found a group that finally gets it.
In an attempt to stop percocet, I began to take tramadol. Originally I stopped taking it due to nausea and now I'm fairly certain it is making my depression worse. The situation of myself being sick and feeling like a burden to those around me is weighing heavy on me these days. I feel trapped in my head and very small a lot of the time. The pain doesn't help with this situation either and it is hard for me to see the light at the end of the tunnel where my pain will be under control.
What do you guys do when you have bad days/weeks?
