Today has just been a rough day. I couldn’t fall asleep last night because my legs were hurting too bad. This morning started out rainy then the sun came out and now the clouds have come back and the temp is going to be dropping like crazy. My pain levels have definitely increased so I finally sucked it up and called the doctor for an appointment and she is completely booked clear up to May 1. So I’ve asked the nurse to be put on a cancellation list. I guess this is one of the downsides of seeing an amazing doctor.
As far as the endo diet goes, I am trying to stick to it. My book STILL hasn’t come in so I am winging it. I am really trying to eat less packaged foods and more fresh fruits and veggies. But its a slow process. So I will continue to post as time goes on about the diets effects (or lack thereof).
As for the silver lining, I was glad to be able to share my endo story last night at church for the Easter program. I feel very blessed to know that God can take ANY situation and use it for His glory. I’m not someone who believes that God looks down and zeros in on people to experience disease (whether it be endo or diabetes or cancer). I think that sometimes things just are and God allows (not causes) things to happen and we have the choice to either allow these experiences pull us away from Him or see these experiences as opportunities to share our faith and our story. I know that without going through endometriosis that I would never have been able to form such wonderful relationships with ladies of the ERC. I also know that without going through infertility I would never have found such amazing women who inspire me daily with their faith and determination. I hope that I in turn have been able to provide some kind of hope and encouragement for other women who know my story.
