For anyone who I haven't replied to individually, are nosey, are suffering too or are my colleagues:

I was recently diagnosed with endometriosis and had two surgeries yesterday to remove what has been growing and festering inside me for god knows how long from my body and happy to say I'm in remission 🎉
It's been an excruciatingly painful five months with the NHS with diagnoses such as IBS, IBD, "just period pain", "just bloating", "just a bad day", splenic flexure syndrome, gastroenteritis, fybromyalgia and more. While some of those are still present, it wasn't nice being fobbed off by doctors saying:
"It seems like IBS, try a low FODMAP diet.", "It's just period pains, take some painkillers."
"How are you feeling? Is there anything at home troubling you or are you due soon? Here, try some antidepressants!" After deciding to go private, they had me signed up for a laparoscopy and hysteroscopy within two weeks and was the best thing we've ever done.
Now on the road to wellness and more diagnoses for another suspected medical condition. I'm getting there.

Yes, I'm still in pain, but I'm confident it will decrease now the endo is removed and the post-op pain goes (not pretty at all).
Yes, I can relapse so I have to look after myself but happy I'm finally in remission!
Yes, I will be back to work soon after recovery.
Yes, apparently the best cure for endometriosis is getting pregnant... If you can. 
So ladies and gentlemen, get down to the doctor and have a check up. Look after yourself. Listen to your body. 
If you think something is wrong, there is no harm in checking up on it.
You know your own body!

Anyone else suffering from endo, your pain is REAL and don't let anyone tell you it's not.
It can be excruciating and debilitating.
Only you know how your body feels.

People say I worry too much, or that I'm too sensitive.. They tell me to relax.. Call me weak bc I have anxiety and other mental illnesses. I think worrying is a sign of compassion❤️My sensitivity is a sign that I'm an empathetic person💞And in my mind, that is a wonderful trait to have. Perhaps it is bc of my struggles, that I've gained so much wisdom and compassion. I think it's true what they say: Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls. #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #spoonie #spooniewarrior #fightstigma #empathy #love #peace #kindnessmatters #endometriosis #interstitialcystitis #pudendalneuralgia #phlebitis #arthritis #osteoarthritis #lumbarspondylosis #bulgingdisc #ibs #spasticcolitis #bipolardisorder #anxietydisorder #gad #panicanxiety #ptsd #spreadawareness #dontbeashamed

Goodmorning! It's sunflower season and my mom was nice enough to bring some over for me yesterday. I love sunflowers😊Trevor comes home today.. Unfortunately, he just called and won't be back until I'm in bed.☹️😡My pain has been somewhat tolerable, although I haven't been able to go out much, and my arthritis has been flaring a lot! (Probably bc the weather is slowly starting to change) I'm sure it will only get worse until the temperature/humidity/pressure stabilizes. Anyway.. Happy Saturday everyone! Spoonie love!❤️💞 #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #endometriosis #interstitialcystitis #ibs #spasticcolitis #myofascialpain #arthritis #osteoarthritis #lumbarspondylosis #flowers #yellowflowers #sunflowers

Love having this extra time w/ my babies!❤️My parents have been stopping over everyday too.. taking care of me and driving me to my doctors appointments. My pelvic specialist increased the dose of one of my meds. So far it's helping. Saw my primary yesterday who switched me to a different pain killer, which is helping so far as well. I'm seeing an NP at my gastro's office today. Hoping to get more blood work and testing done. My primary ordered a bunch that I'm getting done next Tuesday. Anyway.. for now I just have to treat the pain. Hopefully after some testing I can find the cause and start treating that.🙏Wish me luck! Spoonie love and thanks for all the support! Sorry I haven't been able to like back or respond much! I'm hoping this weekend I'll have time!❤️💕 #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #chronicillnesslife #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #endometriosis #interstitialcystitis #ibs #spasticcolitis #cat #instacat #catsagram #catsofinstagram #mychubbers #catlove #tortie #tortiecat #tortiesofinstagram

Back from the salon.. And back in my pjs! Now for some serious rest. That one visit took a lot out of me. It took everything I had not to cry while I was there.🤕But my hair looks awesome!💁🏼And I'm back home w/ the kitties watching Harry Potter❤️👍 #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #chronicillnesslife #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #endometriosis #interstitialcystitis #pudendalneuralgia #ibs #spasticcolitis #myofascialpain #arthritis #osteoarthritis #lumbarspondylosis #newhair #freshhaircut #freshcolor #darkhair #longhair #selfie

Despite the intense heat, lack of water, and now the weather change.. There are flowers still blossoming.🌺I'm still in horrible pain, and desperate for a solution, but I'm trying to find patience and faith that things will turn out alright. I wrote a detailed list of all my symptoms yesterday morning and brought it to my pelvic specialists office when I met w/ him in the afternoon. He seemed deeply concerned about my gastro intestinal symptoms. I asked him is IBS really usually this debilitatingly painful? And he said.. When combined w/ your endometriosis, interstitial cystitis, pudendal neuralgia, and myofascial pain.. Yes. So.. I need to find a way to help prevent these flares, and hopefully get back to physical therapy and pain management. As for today.. I'm getting my hair done! Why not? I might as well look good if I'm going to feel like crap.💁🏼Gives me something to look forward to. I'm seeing other doctors this week too. I will keep you updated. Thankyou for all the love and support!❤️💕 #chronicpainwarrior #chronicillness #chronicillnesslife #chronicillnesswarrior #invisibleillness #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniewarrior #flower #summerflowers #pinkflower #beautiful #endometriosis #pudendalneuralgia #interstitialcystitis #myofascialpain #ibs #spasticcolitis #chronicpain

Uhm.. No thanks! The meds my primary gave me Tuesday did NOT help at all, and only gave me more side effects to worry about. In fact, I'm pretty sure they may have aggravated my symptoms. So, I'll be sticking to my usual meds. The at home pain killers I have are helping a bit. I'm probably at about a 6-7 w/ them. My tens unit helps too.. Not as much as the hard core drugs I get at the hospital, but better than nothing. The weather is changing, so I'm pretty sure I'm done w/ the pool for this year.. for the most part that is.. And unfortunately I can't go for a walk bc it only exacerbates my pain, so I'm in bed watching "Arthur and the Invisibles" right now. We'll see how the rest of the day goes. I've been able to eat a little, but only bland, soft foods. Anyway.. Thanks to those of you who read my posts, and for all the love and support. I'll continue to post updates.

Home again w/ my baby on my lap.❤️Unfortunately, ended up in the ED again today. My pain was probably like a 12.😖😫Still no answers, but managed to get my pain under control. At least for now. Glad to be home w/ my kitties. I just hope it doesn't escalate again. Nervous!!😥Scheduled follow ups w/ my gastro and pelvic specialist. Fingers crossed.

I'm starving!.. But too scared to eat😖☹️and bored.😒So I started organizing my lush stuff. Got a picture of most of my lush pots and bottles. These are the pots. Maybe tomorrow if it's raining out again, I'll line up my bath bombs, bubble bars and soaps. I'll have nothing else to do anyway. So here they are!
