Damn endo.

I went to my first Houston Endometriosis Association Support Group meeting last night. Pretty informative, although most of the women have tried some things that seem pretty out there. I am just not into the whole "hollistic" thing. If they had said anything about it really helping their symptoms, that would be one thing, but they all pretty much said it hadn't helped very much. I am having a crap load of pain today, to the point of getting dizzy and nauseaus. I have way too much to do this evening and all I want to do is go home and curl up in bed with my heating pad, ice pack and my book.
I am usually not a baby about weather stuff, but this Rita crap has me freaked out.
Ugh. I am not into writing right now.

Hi NicoleC!

Happy Endometriosis Awareness Month! :)

I had found you on twitter and that's what led me to your blog.

That's great that you found an endo support group. I found one in 1992 and have been in such groups ever since.

When I got married and moved to where I am now, I decided to start a group. That was in 2001.

Anyway, I have had great results with acupuncture (see my video where I show how small the needles are on my blog or my YouTube channel).

If you read the comments on the video (on YouTube) where I discussed acupuncture, you can see that others have found it helpful too.

I have also had great results with homeopathy. These are just a couple of examples of methods I have tried other than the tradional "drugs and surgery" route.

Many women in my local group have had great success with various forms of alternative medicine methods.

I'm sorry to hear that the women in your group did not get results with whatever it is that they tried but I know many women who have been helped by everything from Chi Nei Tsang to Maya abdominal massage to nutritional changes.

There's an acupressure point on the wrist that has helped me with nausea.

I hope you are feeling well!
