Pretty sure the REAL meaning of endometriosis is:
“live in chronic pain until you hit menopause or get yourself a hysterectomy.”
“get your hopes up and have them crushed.”
“Get you hopes up and have them crushed” is a recurring theme in my life since Endo. Not just treatments failing to work, but having to constantly cancel plans and reevaluate my life goals. It’s constant hope crushing.
You are so right! So much more than the pain!
