Endo Depression & Anxiety

Anyone relate to days that feel like the weight of the world is sitting on your shoulders ? Or The crazy energy of anxiety that keeps you up at night and doesn’t allow your mind to rest 🤦🏾‍♀️ Chronic illness has a way of wreaking havoc on your mental health. Many don’t realize the psychological & social stress that we deal with on a daily basis. Dealing with chronic pain not only compromises our bodies immune system but strains social relationships, sexuality , mental health and our careers. . I remember being depressed when I was unable to get answers about what was actually going on with my body 😢 It’s one thing to know that you’re ill & get a game plan, it’s a different issue when you’re going to doctor after doctor & getting NOTHING but comments like “ maybe it’s all in your head”. The stress of being called a hypochondriac at least 5 times a month was tough and made me doubt my own intuition at times. Some mornings I’d wake up & feel like I had nothing to look forward to but more disappointment & debilitating pain. The endless loop linking stress/ anxiety to endometriosis symptoms is REAL I’ve found prayer & meditation helpful to center my body & mind , yoga , working out & having a strong support system when I’m feeling overwhelmed or helpless ⬇️ Comment below what helps you when depression & anxiety tries to creep in ? .
