I mean, when you are in pain, and Endo is at it's worst, is your DH/DB/DF/SO supportive of you? Do they do anything special to try to help? Do they understand? Ever worry they think you're being dramatic (lol)?

He's supportive most of the time but I do know he thinks I'm being dramatic sometimes. When he had his wisdom teeth out I said good you'll have some percocet left that I can take for cramps. He said I wouldn't need something that strong. Apparently he is under the impression that I'm a big baby He does always ask if there is anything he can do or if I need to go to the hospital.

OMG, my BF is soooo supportive of me, I know I'm so lucky to have him. He will rub my back any time I ask. He will force me to the hospital when I'm just about comatose from pain (I hate hospitals and refuse to go unless I'm carrying my head under my arm or Eden is hurt.) and if we run into a doctor who doesn't believe me, he usually pulls them outside and has a "talk" with them. The only time he didn't was when the PA refused to listen to him OR me, and he called management and she got in quite a bit of trouble. He will also run and drop off or pick up prescriptions for me, no matter what time of the day or night it is. He knows I'm not being dramatic because he saw me in labor with Eden. The epidural wore off when I hit 7 CM and I didn't scream or yell once. I just had a few tears come out. I have an incredibly high pain tolerance, except when it comes to ear aches or tooth aches.

My DH is for the most part. He knows (I had a natural child birth with Caiden, with pitocin) that I am tough and have a high pain tolerance. However, endo pains knock me off my feet. I spend a lot of time curled up in a ball. He understands on some level and tends to Caiden, and although he destroys the house, he lets me rest. He also is understanding if I can't pick him up from work (a block away :S ) if I had taken a percocet. Things like that. He actually got me a bath shelf that holds a book, and some really nice bath stuff from Melt because he knew my endo pain was helped by a hot bath.

With the surgery coming up, I think he thinks I'm being dramatic. I know if I am on painkillers, I wont be functioning. They told me to expect 4 days of being a bed zombie on painkillers and recovering from anethesia, but DH thinks thats a bit steep in his opinion. We'll see. I fear for my house though... I'm sure he'll trash it! :S
