Jamee – this was such an amazing and honest post. I can relate to so much. I just had a laparoscopy this June and was diagnosed with endometriosis after nearly a year of excrutitating pain. 4 months after the surgery, I still have my painful days. However, I refused to go on any treatment (birth control pills, Lupron, Mirena, etc.) I am completely against medicating my body with no guarantee of relief. I have focused and have spent so much of my time and energy on finding natural ways to deal with my many pains. Chinese medicine and Acupuncture have been an immense help for me, but with anything, it has taken a lot of time to see results. I hope that you find something that works for you and can experience as many pain-free days as you can. Your possitive energy and inspiring words are so motivating and touching.
