Read Noralee’s Endo Story below…
In 2010, I rushed to Gynae Associates and was diagnosed with Endometriosis; this was the first time I was hearing about Endometriosis. I was on the contraceptive pills for years, with minimal ease from the pain. The contraceptive pills only regulated the period, as I have my period, sometimes, twice per month. My gynae introduced me to the depo-provera which was supposed to ease the pain, but that was only effective for about 3 months and then it was back to business with the pain. I lived on pain-killers to the point where I got addicted to them to help me function on a daily basis. After awhile, they stopped being effective and now nothing helps with the pain.
I have lower back, abdominal and anal pains which sometimes is accompanied by nausea, headache and dizziness. I’m unable to walk or stand for an extended period of time anymore. The endo is really messing-up my life and I wish I could get rid of it.
I pray and cry out to God daily for an ease to this enemy of mine. I must be thankful and grateful to the Lord Jehovah, though, for allowing me to be a parent and also giving me the strength to cope with the pain when it’s most severe.
