Ever since been diagnosed well before being diagnosed really my life has been torn apart.
I am in severe pain daily in my stomach, pelvic area, and back have constant digestive issues, painful bowel movements painful urination, have to pee every 10mins, have severe chronic fatigue, and feel like a zombie.
I have had to give up everything in my life because of this illness, my course, my job, my social life, my hobbies, my freedom, all because I am in so much pain exhausted and bed bound daily.
I may never be able to have a child due to this illness, I have to take hormones for the rest of my life, which are supposed to help but just make you feel worse, I have been robbed of my youth.
I honestly feel sometimes like I would rather die than live this awful way.
What kind of life is that to live?
I try to think positively all the time I try to push myself to do things despite my pain and fatigue and I just end up feeling even worse!
No one understands and everyone thinks your insane or making it up.
Yeah like people would wanna pretend to be ill for years great prank right?!
The worst thing is doctors not understanding or taking it seriously, everytime I see my GP I feel worse and dismissed and told it's psychological!
Well I have an actual diagnosis of a physical illness so how is that psychological?!
I wish doctors would actually realise the impact this has on womens lives and actually bother to find a fucking cure, but of course they don't give a fuck, no one does unless it's happenng to them!
