Dear Family,Friends and anyone else who reads my story and who is willing to give and be a blessing to  help me survive and thrive over this horrible painful disease called  Endometriosis. Unfortunately, a few years ago in 2015 I was diagnosed with endometriosis after having so much pelvic, colon and abdominal pain, I had a laparascopic surgery since at the moment all they could see is that I had two ovarian cysts and the doctors believed that was where my pain stemmed from so when they opened me up in surgery they found some endometriosis on my left fallopian tube but even though they took it off , the surgery was not done by a specialist and the pain never really went away and might I add that Endometriosis is not a disease that can be seen by a CT scan or ultrasound it is invisible and can only be seen by opening up the patient and if not properly taken off all the way it grows back and spreads to other areas of the female reproductive system and even one's organs. This disease started taking over my health and life since then but in the past last 8 months my health has been deteriorating due to this horrible disease. It has gone to the point that I haven't been able to leave my home due to the daily chronic endometriosis pain. On bad painful days when the pain jumps to a pain level from 8 to 10 all I can do is take medicine and stay in bed with a heating pad and pray and cry untill the meds help the pain subside. I was already deemed disabled back in 2012 for carpel tunnel, tendonitis and arthritis on my cervical spine and I have not worked since then which means it's only my husband that works but unfortunately last year he took 2 months family medical leave to take care of me because I couldn't even feed myself or go run errands or even drive due to the excruciating painful stabbing pain where even a car ride would bring me to tears. So now I'm still unable to work due to this disease and about 2 weeks ago I ended up going to the E.R 3x in 4 days due to level 12 pains where all I could do is cry here at home . Until my last E.R. visit they finally admitted me to Kaiser Walnut Creek for 4 days to help me manage the pain and I was discharged about 5 days ago. So unfortunately my husband just asked to take 6 more weeks off for family medical leave again to take care of me and to take me to my doctor appointments but since he took 2 months off last year He has used all of his sick time and paid time off, so this disease has been depleting us not only physically, emotionally,  mentally but also financially.  Unfortunately with Kaiser its a long waiting game and the longer it takes the disease gets worse and progresses plus they dont have Endometriosis specialists. I have found a great endometriosis specialist but he is not covered by my health insurance and the 1st consult costs $544.00 dollars and the surgery costs $35,000.00 dollars which means we have to come up with these finances on our own. So please help with whatever you can and if you can't even PRAYERS are definitely welcomed! Thank you in advance for your help , love and support. Xoxo
