My doctor prescribed birth control pills to regulate the hormones. While other women haven't had issues with the pill, it hasn't been my cup of tea. It's frustrating to think that most doctors' solution to this issue is birth control without telling us the possible side effects.
That won't be easier .I'm rather a very weak woman that is constantly trying to exist. Barely surviving . At this point in my life,I always wonder what it would be like to be pain free.I'm in a constant battle with my own body every other time. when I'm not enduring extreme abdominal and lower back pain that makes me feel like I'm in labor,I am struggling with an extremely heavy menestrual flow. When I'm not battling migraines or clustered pain throughout my body not forgetting the forever bloating ,I'm dealing with so much pelvic pressure and even though that comes with a prize that is the urge to frequently use the bathroom,other times i can't get my body to pass whatever call that was. It's frustrating .
Among the many frustrating features of being a CYSTER is the abnormal and extremely embarrassing hair growth in places you wouldn't expect to grow hair. This kills the little self esteem you have.Apparently, only old folks are allowed to say they're in pain out loud. He insisted that it was all in my head and the pain was UNREAL.
In other words, I'm just going to take it as a compliment because I look fine to you. Because I am a good actress for playing the fine role so well.The more awareness there is for illnesses like multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, fibromyalgia, PCOS etc., the less judgment there will be for us living with these invisible illnesses.
living with Chronic Pain every day is an adventure. It feels more like a roller-coaster. Sometimes it's up, other times it's down here _mostly down for me.No, the pain meds don't always help. Pain is my constant companion even when I'm on medication. I just try to fake smile to hide my desperation because I know you don't care anyway.
I don't feel well but explaining it doesn't lessen my pain sweetheart. I will still feel every bit of it. I'll still cry silently. And you will still doubt my illness and worse dismiss it like everyone else. So I will just say, I am fine.
