Well it's very early... about 3am (in Canada).... still no sleep. I am at the point where I would give up chocolate for a year just to have a good night sleep. I used to be such a good sleeper back in the day. I'd go to bed at 10pm and be able to wake up at 10am and feel refreshed. Now, I can't fall asleep until 7-8am and sleep until 4-5pm. It has ruined my life. I've been crying myself to sleep for the past 3 weeks now.
This idea of giving endo patients Depo Lupron is a mistake. Who in their right mind would think it's normal to put a 23 year old in menopause?! So now I have to go through menopause not once but twice? Why is it that a doctor can give you 2 options to "cure" the endo... have a baby or get a hysterectomy?! Especially when you've been told that you will not have children.
Endo is a slow emotional killer. It takes over your life and ppl think you're crazy. Doctors are not educated on Endo in Canada therefore, they cannot treat it. Why is it that humans can figure out a way to send men on the moon but cannot find a cure for diseases?!
Most meds are not covered on insurance therefore, we have to pay 600$ per month for ONE shot that leaves us miserable. Insurance will not cover certain pills unless you have cancer. Pain clinics will not treat you unless you have cancer either. Why?! I have to have cancer in order to get someone to take me seriously and treat me?! This does not make sense considering that insurance will cover meds for addicts to "cure" themselves from their habits.
Too many questions and not enough answers...
