So, I’m reading Endometrioisis A Comprehensive Update, which was published late last year by Springer. There’s a wonderful little quote that I just have to share. The authors say a Scottish physician in 1774 described the symptoms of Endometriosis:
“In its worst stages, this disease affects the well-being of the female patient totally and adversely, her whole spirit is broken, and yet she lives in fear of still more symptoms such as further pain, the loss of consciousness and convulsions.”
I don’t know the physician’s name, or if it was, indeed, Endometriosis he was describing, but this quote really hit home. I don’t know about you, EndoSisters, but I do fear it returning…
On that note : HAPPY FRIDAY!
