If Endometriosis was a person what would you say to her?
I would say this:
You suck. Period- you just SUCK. You have taken a lot away from me. I have had to adjust my whole world just to attempt to live a normal life. I have had to put things on hold for you, cancel plans for you, I have lost relationships because of you. I have had tons of sleepless nights- “painsomnia” is something I know all to well.
Why did you choose me? Why?! Why do you have a mind of your own, you just come and go as you please causing physical and emotional pain! Why are you so evil?
Despite the horrible things you have put me through, you have also taught me great lessons. You have made me realize how strong I truly am. You have made me realize that medicine doesn’t make me weak- sometimes medicine is the only way to calm you down. You have shown me that you choose me for a reason- you choose me because you knew I would use you as an opportunity to help other women like me. You have made me realize god only gives you battles he knows you can handle. I know for a fact a lot of people couldn’t even bare a day walking in an Endometriosis Warriors shoes.
Although you are evil and I dislike you very much I know you don’t control me. This is my life and obviously you are stuck with me forever but I promise you dealing with me won’t be easy just like it isn’t easy dealing with you. One day my only hope is that there will be a cure for you, and you better watch out but until then I have an amazing community of endosisters that will be there to help me fight back at you! 💛
Wow this is a great way to get things off your chest and tell Endo what’s on your mind! I encourage you all to write an open letter to Endometriosis and please tag me in it, I would love to read them.
