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?
