What if you could flip a coin and have half of your issues simply disappear? Would you do it? Would you be able to choose between the two halves of your issues?
Last month, Endometriosis.net posted a survey question on their Facebook page. The question asked, “If you could make one Endo symptom disappear, what would it be?” Although this website is a corporate advertisement, the comments are real. The pain and stress came from other #endowarrior sisters who are simply fed up with their chronic illnesses. It was amazing to read all of the responses. The debate went back and forth between choosing a life without pain or a life without heavy bleeding.
This is a debate that I am always having with myself. If I could get rid of one of the two major issues, would life be more manageable? To be honest, I still do not have an answer to this question. I am unsure if my life would improve if only half of these issues disappeared. Regardless of making a decision, I would have to face major Endometriosis side effects. But the question remains, would it be better? Would I be more able to deal with such side effects if I only had half of the issues? I’m sure the answer to any of these questions would be yes. It still makes me wonder though.
