I hate having severe Endometriosis!!! Especially on days like today. I am sitting at my desk, trying to find a comfortable position where I am not in pain. There is no comfortable position. I am at work so I can’t take the good pain pills. I have to get by with just Motrin and it isn’t working. My hands are shaky due to the pain. I can’t even eat because the pain will get so intense that I throw up. And again, I am at work.
I would love to be in bed right now, with my pain meds and a heating pad. But I am a teacher. I only get so many sick days and I have used up half of them on doctor’s appointments (and it is only the first semester). Even though it is next to impossible to deal with 35 teenagers at a time, I have to do it. I don’t have a choice. I have to get through lunch duty and two more classes. It seems like an eternity when you are in pain. But whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right?
