“all great. but, note that when you have a disease that's not in the public eye, that most of your doctors, let alone friends/family have even heard of, it's very difficult to get social support. especially in october, it becomes so apparent what disease have support and infrastructure to help those impacted weather the storms, and the diseases that don't.”

“So sorry about your situation. That all sounds painful. Please note that endometriosis can only be confirmed with surgery---a regular clinic exam and/or MRI/ultrasounds are not definitive. Are you in California? I'd recommend visiting the following website to get more info: http://www.nezhat.org/

“Yar I'm in California. I'm in the middle of no where in California so going places I'd trust with my life is kind of expensive.”

“has anyone ever suggested that you be evaluated for endometriosis?”

“Nope, not that I can do it right now what with no health insurance, and the doctors in my town refusing to take Medi-cal/care/caid/whatever you wanna call it.

Though I doubt it is the case, Many years ago when I had health insurance I had a good OBGYN who retired a year later, he never saw anything that'd indicate it, and I haven't been back after the one I saw after him literally hammered the metal death device into my crotch and caused me extreme agony for a month while my body repaired itself.”

“What's most important: it IS NOT normal for period pain to be debilitating to the point where you can't continue with your normal activities (e.g. go to school, go to work, attend social gatherings). Beyond PMS, women and girls may be suffering from *endometriosis*. This is a disease that currently is plagued with lack of information, or worse *mis*information. Please see www.endofound.org

“I always find it disappointing that the people who judge others on their adoption choices on the grounds that children need homes are the same ones who didn't think twice about pumping out their own offspring biologically. yes, kids need homes all over the world. but, why is that only discussed as an issue when we are questioning the path of adoptive parents? why don't biological parents get judged for deciding to have biological children as opposed to opening up their own home to the children that they seem to be so concerned about who need homes? are biological parents somehow exempt from caring for the needs of children of the world? the double-standard is a bit much. and, for anyone who is curious, i am in the process of adopting right now---internationally. I'd also like to let you know that professionally, i am in the public service field which involves working with vulnerable children here in the US." What have *you* done for vulnerable kids in your community lately???”
