I have endometriosis and I feel like:
1: No one understands what this involves.
2: If they do know, they think it is just slightly painful periods.
I find it very stressful and upsetting to be so misunderstood. Does anyone else feel like this this? Please help

Hello @endome, thank you for opening this discussion. I'm sorry to hear you're feeling this way, endometriosis, though common, is unfortunately still largely misunderstood.
Can anyone else relate to what @endome has described? Do you feel like people truly understand endometriosis - both doctors and the general public? Have you ever felt misunderstood by your doctors or your family and friends?
