Hello everyone :) I'm Endo Girl (short for Endometriosis). This blog is dedicated to all the girls and women affected by the disease Endometriosis, and for those that do not know anything about it. Throughout the process I hope to help support those who have it and to change some people's perspectives on this misunderstood disease.
Side note: I do suffer from this disease and if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me & show your support :)
So today I went to the doctors and found out I’m going to be on the Lupron shot for more time. It’s odd because he said I should be done after my last dose but apparently today he changed his mind and wanted to put me on Lupron again for another 3 months. But that’s not the thing that upset me today. What really upset me was that I had gained about 10 more pounds since I’ve been on the Lupron shot.
I’ve always been self conscious of my body and have never had great self confidence or body image. Overall, I’ve never been happy or pleased with the way I look and I’ll admit I’m over-judgmental but today when they had to keep going up and up to get my weight on the scale, I started having an anxiety attack. It hit me so hard, and a lot of you will be like “oh weight isn’t a big deal, etc.” but I can’t believe how much it hurts me mentally that it actually turns physical.
I seriously want to lose at least 20 pounds, so that I can be healthy, (notice I said healthy and not slim/skinny). Anyway, I’d really appreciate it if you could give me some tips and tricks for me to help me get to my goal. Thank you.
