Is it normal to contemplate suicide when Endo is so bad?

I have been feeling soooooo ******' depressed because of the pain I am in each day with my Endometriosis that I have spiraled down into a deep deep depression and some days I feel suicidal. Does anyone else feel like just ending it all because of the constant pain? I am sooooooo sick of feeling tired, depressed, in pain and unable to live a normal productive life. I am only 26 and feel like I am living in the skin of a 80 year old person. I walk hunched over cause of the pain and walk slowly like an old lady too. I feel like I am just getting worse day by day. I am seriously contemplating suicide now. What do I do? Please anyone out there..... HELP!!!

Have you been to your doctor for treatment options? There are a number of treatments you can try.. Look into it. Don't just take it and do nothing about it. Be proactive. Hang in there. Good luck

I know how you feel.  I will admit I have had my problems.  I cry daily over it, but I have realized that it is just a part of who I am.  I have started living again and just ignoring the pain.  Is this easy? No, it's not!
I have learned to just up my pain tolerance.  I spend a lot of time out with friends and having a good time.  Many times I forget I am in pain and do something stupid, like drop something on my stomach.  
I have even started to dress nicely everyday.  I wear leggings, dresses, skirts, and nice clothing.  I do this because it is fun.  It is just ways to make life a little more bearable for me.  
Is this ideal?  No it's not.
You just have to find a way to make yourself happy.  I have a life and for the first time I am really living.  My hormones go crazy and I cry over the stupidest things.  I try to do this when I am by myself.  
I might even try taking some fish oil if I were you.  Omga 3 does wonders for me and I love it.  Just find what makes you happy and go for it.

I know exactly how you feel, about a year ago I had my 3rd lap, they got more endo and unlike the other 2 surgeries this one didn’t help at all,  I felt worse it at all possible.  My Dr put me on methadone which does help but if I’m on it for more than 2 weeks I start becoming immune to it.
I’ve lose my job in debt up to my ears and some days I wish it would just end. But no matter what suicide is not the answer.  Go to your Dr try a pain management center, I would not get on any depression meds yet because you are prob just upset because of the pain, work on that and make your Dr understand you.
