I have bad periods from the time I started when I was twelve. It got worse the older I got and I would miss time off work every month. It got to a point where the blue clits were huge and resembled packaged liver. Lol. Horrid thought I know but it's the best way to explain it lol. It became so painful it was difficult to walk. After years of being scoffed at by doctors I did my own research and presented what I had discovered to a gynocologist and asked him to perform a lapiroscopy to determine whether I was right. And sure enough after that procedure it was confirmed that I had endometriosis and cysts had form on my uterus and Fallopian tubes. I was scheduled for surgery two months later. It took only that period of time for it to destroy my ovaries. I had a complete hysterectomy at the age of 31.

I've been diagnosed the same way with my fibro. I did my research and presented this information to my GP at which point she agreed I had fibromyalgia. I truly believe that she's learning from me as I'm the one who digs for as much information as I can find regarding fibro and when I see her we discuss what it is I've discovered.

I find it rather amusing that at one time she had been a bit condescending to me up until she realized that within a year I had 3 colouring books published and that I had fostered feral cats. And worked deligently with them to regain their trust to make them eligible for adoption. I had 24 cats here at one time, and I had to give it up as I found I was being taken advantage of by the person I was working with. And I was totally exhausted. Now when I go fir my appointment she has become very respectful toward me in her attitude. Amazing lol.
