I'm in the DC Metro area and am hoping to find a doctor or specialist who can help me with my endo. I've gotten one lap and been on countless BC pills which make my depression worse and counteract my antidepressants. The only way I can maintain this condition each month is by taking prescription pain medication (left over from dental surgery or back pain) but when I've discussed this method with doctors, they are resistant to me treating my pain this way because of addiction possibility, etc. Now, I'm fully aware of addiction and painkillers but really, research shows that a very small amount of people who are in severe pain and take them develop a dependency. Plus it is 2 days out of 30 that I take them. I feel at a loss, I wish I could find a doctor who could empathize with how severe this pain is and not think that hormones are the only way to create this condition. Does anyone have any suggestions? Sorry for a long post

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
