Hi I'm new to this site and I', 17 years old and have just been diagnosed with Endo. I've tried numerous birth control pills (pill, patch, shots, etc) and nothing has worked. Appearantly, I've had this for quite a while, but it is still a mild to moderate case. The doctor mentioned putting me on Lupron, but my medical insurance wont cover it. Also, I'm a little scared about the side effects, whether or not I will be able to tolerate them. Then, I've heard from some of you that it usually doesn't work. At least not to the point of where the endo doesn't really bother you. I don't want to go back on the Pill because it didn't work, I'm scared about the Lupron because of all of the side effects, and the chance of it not working. But, I also don't want it to get worse, like to Stage 3 or 4 and it throw out my chances of having a child later. Then the doctor mentioned a hysterectomy, and that scared me to death, because what if I want to have a child later? You can't really "reverse" that surgery... So, any siggestions would be greatly appreciated...Because this is a really tough disease to cope with, I feel like I'm all by myself because nobody in my family, except for an aunt whom I don't speak with much anymore, has this disease. It makes me feel sort of by myself and it's really depressing...

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
