You just need a more positive attitude

You just need a more positive attitude.”
A positive attitude isn’t going to detach endometrial adhesion from the sides of organs. A positive attitude isn’t going to give a woman with endometriosis a sure chance at children.

You have cramps today.”
Endometriosis is not cramps. It’s not even “bad cramps”. It’s chronic pain caused by internal bleeding and inflammation. There are two types of endometriosis pain : tolerable and intolerable.

Comparing that to cramps is incredibly degrading.
