I had essure done in 2007. I wanted something fast and simple so I could get back to work and taking care of my baby boy and my then 5 year old daughter. I went to my O.B and told her something was wrong. The Dr. then said it would heal in time. I had no desire for sex! She said maybe, I should change partners that worked for many people. I was stuned, but I married this man,I thought to myself. So she then send to make supositories that would help but my insurance would not cover. Maybe It’s post partum. I went to my pcp, Why does my body hurt so bad? I forget everything. I am so tired all the time. I new I would wake up in pain. I left my job. I became a really sad person. I told my doctor again how much I hurt and I was refured to a therapist. I told my therapist I could not do anything, I hurt and she could see it in my face. My pcp said it was my weight so,I got more depressed. Finally, one day I said ‘Let’s put my weight aside, What if I was thin and I hurt this bad? How can I become thinner or lose weight if I can’t even walk? I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I am now on SSDI. My kids are 12 and 7 and I can’t even walk to their school to pick them up. My forgetfulness is fibro fog, so they say. I gave up. I stay home. One day the phone rings and my sister said, turn on the television. Your not sick! It’s that thing you put ‘take it off’ you’re not the only one look at the news. I saw the list, she tells me. You have all that! Take it off, Take it off. You can be your self. Maybe I can go back to work I thought. I learned to live with pain. I stopped living. I became lazy so I feel. What happens now? Who is telling the truth? What about women like me who get scared of medicine and have no proof because Dr.s become our enemy, telling us it’s all in our heads. After 2007, I became a sick women. If Essure is the cause of how I have been feeling all these years? I hope It is taken off the market. We lose our jobs, we lose who we wanted to be and how we could of been maybe even a better mom but most of all is just being a women!
