I have received so many wonderful messages from friends/family and other endo suffers, wishing me luck yesterday and wanting to know how it went. I have decided to write a very quick post to explain what happened. I wish I was able to tell you all good news but unfortunately the surgery did not go as we had hoped. In fact, it is the worst possible outcome right now.
Its 2 degrees… it’s freezing… we’re driving, en route to go and look at a house, and Shelly has her window open, like ALL the way down, jumper off, going a bright red and she tells me she is sweating… I can’t see the sweat yet, but I believe it.
The freezing air is flooding the car… I’m in the worlds thickest jacket, got my scarf on and I’m shivering. I am freezing.
I look at her, and say… that blog post you want me to write… this moment sums it up. Let’s take a picture… she refused. We started laughing, for like 20 seconds, then she went to anger and told me to stop taking the piss…. I wasn’t, I promise. But I had apparently gone from comedian to worlds worst husband in like 20 seconds.
March is endometriosis awareness month and this is symbolised by the yellow ribbon. Part of my own personal goals is to make everyone more aware of endometriosis, however I realise that I have never actually explained what endometriosis is! So this post is all about endometriosis: the symptoms, management and the reason it is so difficult to diagnose.
