Emotions And Endo

Emotions And Endo

I used to think that my sensitive nature and ability to cry at the drop of a some was because I was a highly sensitive person (high empath). However now that I have been diagnosed with Endometriosis I am just curious....i definitely became emotional during a meeting with a co-worker today and just wished i had control.

1. Do women with endo naturally feel more sensitive or emotional?
2. Any tips?

Being exhausted and fatigued all the time can affect your ability to control your emotions.

I am called highly emotional for a long time now. But I haven't experienced any compassion or understanding. They just keep on calling me an emotional person, that is not able to control. I try to let them understand it is not only a mental issue, but also fysical. I have lost my uterus and tubes and a piece of my rectum. I did not have any kids. But still there is no compassion at work. Just come and do your job and shut up about your personal things. I just te be some kind of city police officer, but because of my emotions, pain and fysical struggles, I can not do that anymore. So now I am searching for a new job. But being in pain every does not make it very easy. I hoped that surgery would be a relieve, but it was not. I have other issues now. I just to have pain once a month, a lot. Like vomating and crowling over the floor. Now I have pain every day. Not so bad of a pain as it used to be when it was once a month, but enough to get exhausted from it and not being able to go and do nice things like dancing and going out. This all takes a big toll at my emotional well being.

If you use ibuprofem( long term) it affects you emotionally as well, to the point you might even get depression πŸ˜–πŸ˜–πŸ˜–

I don't know tbh but if endo is linked to a high production of oestrogen, I would blame that hormone!!

I have had this all of my life gifted to me unknowingly by my mother and her mother before her. I have five daughters that I’m sure will have it too. Two of the five already do. I’m a highly sensitive empath, born that way so you can imagine how much this disease send me over the edge more often than not and much more than I want to. When I can’t control my emotions I feel my entire being has been hit jacked because whatever or whomever angers or hurts me not has residence in my mind. This is extremely difficult. I’m in so much pain that I can only tell that I’m ovulating by seeing the menstruation itself and timing it between 28-30 days. I’m so tired of the pain you know. Imagine have the pain from your period 24/7, 365, no vacations and no days off. Now imagine being a mother of five daughters one son and homeschooling three of the middle children at the same time! God help us all to management through this extremely difficult and overlooked disease. Peace and blessings to you all. Keep you head up because if you don’t MY BEAUTIFUL SISTER GODDESSES THAN OUR CROWNS MAKE FALL.
