Endometriosis is a debilitating disease that can have an adverse impact on almost all aspects of life including career, relationships, and overall quality of life . If you are affected by the disease, you may struggle to keep yourself motivated and go about your daily activities. Here are a few tips on how to stay motivated and cultivate a positive frame of mind.
Endometriosis can have a serious impact on your mental health as it does on your physical well-being . Chronic pelvic pain caused by the disease can lead to anxiety and depression .
Acknowledging your pain and practicing self-compassion and self-empathy can help you manage your mental health. Practicing techniques such as mindfulness, yoga, or pursuing a hobby can also relieve endometriosis-associated pain and may help you relax and relieve your mind .
Devising a daily routine and adhering to it as much as possible can help you manage your pain . See if you can include time for activities such as exercise, socializing with family and friends, relaxation, and hobbies. Engage in activities that you really find stimulating and enjoy doing.
Take things one step at a time and try not to get overwhelmed. Wherever possible, break the task up into smaller ones with ample periods of rest in between. Gradually achieving small goals will keep you motivated and inspire much-needed confidence.
If you are a working professional, you might want to consider discussing your condition with your employer so you can work out a mutually convenient work schedule .
Endometriosis can cause chronic fatigue . No matter the task at hand, make sure to get adequate rest. Don’t shy away from asking for help from family or friends whenever you need to .
Diet plays an important role in improving the symptoms of endometriosis. Consult a qualified nutritionist and consider switching to an anti-inflammatory diet . Avoid processed foods, alcohol, caffeine, and soya products. Also, ensure you are well hydrated.
Family and friends form a great support system . Talk to them often and convey how you feel. Engage in healthy conversations and don’t hesitate to seek support from them when needed.
At times, you may not be able to honor all your commitments, but that’s perfectly normal. Socializing with family and friends can create a sense of empathy and also help them better understand your condition.
Endometriosis support groups are a great way to network with other patients, clinicians, researchers, and caregivers. Consider joining a local support group in your area or participating in online meetings . Learning from others’ experiences and how they cope with the disease can broaden your understanding and keep you motivated.

I’ve seen many obgyns over the years explaining my monthly symptoms during my period...but eventually it became a daily struggle with these pain. It feels like a poke here and there near my right pelvic region. I was given birth control pills for the past ten years but honestly, it didn’t help at all. I was in bed whenever I had my period. I was previously sent to GI doctors for possible appendicitis but it was ruled out from imagings…
Dr.Seckin is so much more than a surgeon. His passion for helping endometriosis sufferers and determination to improve the quality of life in all of his patients is undeniable. I remember when my gynecologist first told me I needed a laparoscopy. Her exact words were "I can do the surgery, but if you were MY daughter- I'd send you to him." From the first day I met him he took the time to explain endometriosis to me since I knew…
I was there for hysterectomy but then I found out that I also had endometriosis.My both surgeries went excellent and I feel great!.I am so thankful to Dr.Seckin and all his team for making my journey smooth!
I am a physician who suffered from deep infiltrative endometriosis. I needed laparoscopic surgery, so I went to see my former gynaecologist and he performed the procedure (a surgery which he supposedly does hundreds of times a year) last November. I had severe pain again when I had my period in January and was advised to go on taking a low hormone dose anticoncipient pill. My symptoms came back quickly and got worse in a few months’ time. I went…
After years of excessively painful periods, a serious loss of quality of life, and a series of uninformed and uninterested doctors, Dr. Seckin and Dr. Goldstein turned my life around. I was told I woke up from my surgery almost a year ago with a smile on my face, and I haven't stopped since. Before I heard of Dr. Seckin, I was experiencing almost daily terrible pain to the point where I had difficulty walking, inability to eat, inexplicable weight…
Dr Seckin and his team gave me back my life! Tomorrow will be 1 month since my surgery and I feel great. Dr. Seckin, Dr Liu, and Dr Goldstein are not only beyond words talented and amazing Doctors, but they are also genuinely wonderful and caring people. I cannot say enough great things about Holly, Asiye and Kim as well. They were all caring, kind, patient, and took the time to listen to me and explain anything I needed to…
