Hi all, it's Cherryl here, listen, I am hoping someone can help me out somewhat. I have a doctor's app't tomorrow morning. I have so much going on with me, and have found that my doctor almost seems to have given up on me. I am living with constant pain, not only endo pain, adhesion pain, bowel trouble, but, fibromyalgia as well, beginning stages of arthritis, and osteo arthritis. All he seems to say is excercise more, and anti depressants. Now, I need to go in there tomorrow, and try to get it across to him, that I need to have some quality of life here, i am 34 with one very active 8yr old child. He doesn't want me taking anymore pain killers, and frankly, i am not doing well at all without them, i can't do what i can do when i take them, all i have been doing is pushing, so hard, then dying at night with pain, headaches and such terrible stiffness. At least when i take the meds, i am capable of so much more, without feeling the full effects of pain. It never takes it away totally, but it does help. He at one point offered me a stronger pain med, and it knocked me out, i have been fine taking the tylenol 3's, but he does't want me taking those, or any other's any longer! I have had 9 surgeries all of which were laps, for endo, and ruptured ovarian cysts etc......my bowel since my last surgery in Aug is a literal mess now, and right at present moment I have such terrible abd, pain, that i feel at times, i may pass out! Someone please try to help explain to me, how to talk to him in a manner that will get across to him......he always tells me how strong i am, and how i can handle this, well the truth is, i can't anymore, and i am so tired.....and so weak, and have lost too much weight,a nd all i hear is how terrible i look, how thin i am, i am worried as well, but i feel so lost, and so very alone. I am tired of feeling like a walking disease, and people thinking i am a nut case..........

Thank you all so much Cherryl
