I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Endometriosis, is that you?

If so...go away...now!!!!

I've been experiencing on and off nausea since my son was born, but, the past few weeks I've begun to feel worse and worse.  During this past week I've been feeling particularly crappy.  Nausea, cramping, abdominal grossness (that really should be a medically appropriate term), early satiety.  This is how it all began all those years ago. If this continues throughout the weekend I'm going to call the OBGYN so they can look at me like I have 3 heads when I ask for an ultrasound.  These feelings are very similar to when I've had endometriomas in the past, and, I'd like to at least explore that before they do all this other garbage on me and not finding any reason for it all.

I wish they could see your ugly face.  I wish they knew.

I really hate you endo.  For realz.

I usually get the old "suck it up" routine from the doctors when I call about my endo.

I'm 16 with it.. my doctor just prescribed me birth control & didnt tell me anything about it. I had to find it out on my own. Unfortunately for me I've had it since I hit puberty.
