My Endometriosis and PCOS ~ Constantly having pain in my lower abdomen, lower back, pelvis, rectum and vagina. Constant pain during intercourse and poo-time. I have NO sex drive; I could give up sex for life and be okay with it. IBS (I’m either going or not). My periods are ridiculously inconsistent, extremely heavy (and black). I’m bloated all the time. For as long as I can remember I’ve battled with my weight, depression and anxiety. My skin is extremely oily and I get acne all over. My testosterone is higher than that of a normal male. My mood swings range from rolling of the eyes to punching and throwing things. I cry all the time and I couldn’t tell you why I’m crying. SUGAR. My sleeping patterns are not at all, an hour or two and maybe 5 hours if I’m lucky; about once every few months I’ll sleep 8-10 to make up for my lacking.
Endometriosis and PCOS are both incurable, chronic diseases that wreak havoc in my life. They are real symptoms. I’m not just being dramatic. I struggle DAILY.
