Feel Good Fridays

Clinical office and ultrasound machine

Another week has passed.

It’s been a tough one for me.  Since last Friday, my pain has been bad, or barely there, or back to horrible, then back to barely there…but the majority of the past seven days, I’ve been in pain.  My heating pad has been with me every day, both at home and at work.  I’ve taken some form of pain medication every day.  I started my period (finally) on Wednesday and am riding that wave.

Awful period cramps, lower back pain, pain when pooping, and pain when peeing.

My ultrasound on my birthday found a small cyst on my left ovary.  A suspicious one.  We’re going to keep an eye on it and I go in for follow-up ultrasound in two months.  Possibly an MRI following that.  And depending on that outcome…a long talk.

A few Sisters of mine have also expressed a feeling of “it will never end” this week, and I can wholeheartedly feel their anguish.  Their thoughts are my thoughts.  I mirror their fear.  But I am trying to remain positive.

I don’t have any quotes for today. I’m mentally and physically wiped out.  Do you have one? What’s your favorite “pick me up” quote? Share in the comments below.

And have a good weekend, you guys…Love, Lisa.

  1. I have 2 quotes for you. Also, I wanted to thank you, because I keep coming back to your blog for inspiration, advice and companionship. And those are very important when you’re suffering from a chronical condition like endometriosis. These are 2 quotes about hope I found today and really liked. I hope they’ll help you too!

    “The sky takes on shades of orange during sunrise and sunset, the colour that gives you hope that the sun will set only to rise again.” – Ram Charan

    “We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.


  2. Lisa,
    I’ve never really commented on a blog before, but felt compelled to after reading your post and seeing no responses. Sorry, I don’t have a quote just wanted to encourage you to try to remember that the pain and craziness won’t last forever! Those terrible times do stop and things get better, even when there is no end point in sight. Your suffering has a purpose as suffering always does. I speak from experience here – my own endo journey is nearing 27 years in length and am in the midst of yet another flare-up as well. It will pass, hang in there. Just wanted you to know that someone out there is thinking of you and praying for you. Take care.


    1. Thank you, Laura. Such incredible encouragement. And, you’re right. My pain passed on Sunday and now we’re right back down to building up our courage and strength for the next flare. You hang in there, too. ❤ And, thank you, so much. Lisa
