This is a day with ENDOMETRIOSIS and ADENOMYOSIS

Doctor Anna has a rotten day and wants to share it with you. 😉
I have over the years learned to manage my condition (endometriosis) well. However, sometimes I feel like shit. This is a video of such a day as I didn’t want to only give you the glossy front.

I must remember that I have more medical privilege than most women in the world. Despite my pain, this is nothing in comparison to all those hundreds-of-thousands of women suffering in silence; undiagnosed and in pain. Even if they did get a diagnosis, they would have no access to medical care.

I must remember that before complaining too much.

How endometriosis and adenomyosis affect my life

Doctor Anna will carry out a hysterectomy due to her endometriosis and is both worried and relieved.

Endometriosis affects about 10 % of all women and is the second most common cause for infertility in European women. Endometriosis can hurt a lot.

Do you have EXCRUCIATING period pains? It could be endometriosis.

I have endometriosis and adenomyosis. I have had several surgeries and hormone therapies. Now, I have reached a point where I will remove my uterus – a hysterectomy.
This is my journey.

How DANGEROUS is the antivaccine movement?

Doctor Anna speaks of the ANTIVACCINE MOVEMENT ON SOCIAL MEDIA at SkepKon 2018. Film material: Andi Weimann. Material owned by GWUP.

“Don’t worry about those nutcases”, a doctor friend of mine told me. “These are just some idiot hippies that like alternative medicine and meditation. There are enough sensible people out there who vaccinate for this not to become dangerous to the general public”.

This is just one of many conversations I have had with medics, scientists, or public health workers who have dismissed the antivaccine communities as radicalized fringe groups with no real impact, or as “stupid and dumb”. What always struck me though, was that these same people were rarely active on social media and frankly had no idea what they were talking about. They were just as locked into their science fringe groups as the antivaccine movement they criticized.

To be honest, the anti-science groups are no longer fringe groups and these people are not stupid. These are normal people like you and me who have gotten their information flow warped and twisted inside echo chambers. Welcome to social media.

As many of you probably already know: I have endometriosis

Endometriosis is a chronic disease. About 8-10 % of all women are affected, but not all get it so bad that they require surgery.

This means that I will never be cured and that I’m in quite a lot of pain from time to time and that’s quite annoying.

There isn’t much to do except just learning to live with this shit and take hormone therapies and have surgeries.

It’s really tough when you are in a lot of pain and the doc tells you in a very annoyed voice “so, why are you here? What do you want me to do? It’s pointless anyway…”

I can tell you that though he might have been right, it makes you feel like shit and chronic pain doesn’t improve if you psychologically feel like shit.

The problem with endometriosis is that women often don’t get a diagnosis until years after the first symptoms occur. I think the average is about 9 years. I was told by many doctors that it was all in my head. This really damages your trust in medicine.

I don’t even think that these doctors did something really wrong, it’s just that what they hadn’t been keeping up with the latest research so they didn’t know of the prevalence of endometriosis and they might have been stressed and overworked. Who knows. But it happened for almost 10 years for me. Again and again.

I will now tell you something that might make some of you fall off your chairs but bear with me:
I have been paying for acupuncture, shiatsu, massages etc.
I wasn’t paying for a treatment, I was paying for comfort and for being seen.

I don’t have a problem with people going to these places and paying for comfort and for being seen.
IF IT WOULD REMAIN AT THAT. We have a huge problem when people start claiming that they will CURE endometriosis etc. That is highly unethical to claim.

My question to you is how can we integrate this feeling of comfort and trust into school medicine in a better way, particularly for chronically ill patients that aren’t going to use up our entire budget?
I’m asking for the European as well as other healthcare systems.

Tenpenny and the quackery industry

The natural health industry and the antivaxxine sites are often full of hatred and brilliant marketing tricks. They make sure that you feel like a part of the grup, define a common enemy and create problems you don’t have, on order to sell you solutions to the problems you didn’t have.

It’s highly unethical and immoral, in my opinion.

Today, I found Dr. Sheri Tenpenny. I was not impressed.

Treat your TIREDNESS with home made homeopathic HEROIN

As a scientist, it is my job to admit when I am wrong and I acknowledge a few errors in my video on how to make home-made homeopathic coffee to treat my tiredness.

I hope to rectify those errors in this video.

Don’t do this at home and don’t buy heroin.

Best uses of COLLOIDAL SILVER?

I have felt a bit under the weather lately and got a tip from a “natural” website: take colloidal silver!
It claims to cure anything from AIDS to the flu.
Let’s see.
