I am 28 and a long time sufferer of chronic pain that wasn't diagnosed until about 5 years ago. I suffer from debilitating endometriosis as well as Fibromyalgia and arthritis. The endo and fibro are the two that bother me the most. I spent years of my life not understanding my pains and having just about every doctor I'd see telling me that it was all in my head. This paired with family and friends not believing me led me to start questioning my own sanity. At the time, someone as young as me having fibro was let something you saw everyday and endo was just starting to be diagnosed. It took years of emergency room visits, low energy, lots of tears, and pleading until I found two doctors who would actually listen to me and my complaints. I was first diagnosed with the endo and shortly after was diagnosed with the fibro. Unfortunately the treatments for the endo did nothing and the fibro just made the pain I was already in worse. The doctors were at a loss because a lot of the meds to control the fibro interact badly with the endo. So to this day I am completely uneducated for my pain and I deal with it. There are some days when all I can do is cry and others where the pain is almost nonexistent. I am hoping that by joining this app that I can find others like me who have found better ways to cope with their pain. Thanks for letting me ramble.
