For most people housework is just a tedious chore that they would rather not be doing. For people with endometriosis it is exactly that but with a huge dollop of pain on top! A simple task like washing the dishes this evening has left me with so much aches and pain. By half way through, the pain in my back from standing was radiating upwards. Making me want to just lean over the sink and hold on. Hoovering is the same. When I finish I am exhausted. I've gone a bit unsteady on my feet a few times towards the end and my mother has to make me sit down. I look forward to the day when cleaning will not be painful, just tedious! With endometriosis you learn not to take anything for granted!
