Episode 8: Endo’s Correspondence With Brain Part II
The next day…
Texts from Endo:
Brain Brain Brain,Dear old Brain,
You can’t think that I actually meant what I said! It was a joke. I was joking. Of course I’m not involved with the bowels. It’s probably just irritable bowel syndrome she’s dealing with. A coincidence. You know how Big and Small Intestines get for no reason: irritable and overreacting.
No no, I was kidding and there is no reason to suspect me. I’m not a gut problem. If you really want her to feel better you should just imply to the patient that if she would just get a hysterectomy, pain will be gone and we can live together in peace.
I want you to note that the Patient’s people did numerous tests recently on the property down here and never once did anyone even notice I was here, so if anything comes up and people want to blame me, you just show them the results of the tests to set them straight.
Imaging: clear. Bloodwork: clear. Pelvic exam: clear. It’s pretty obvious that I’m not the issue.
Texts from Brain:
Thank you for clarifying your intentions. I don’t know what to think anymore. The Patient is not totally comfortable with the idea of a hysterectomy but wants to feel better. The thing with the bowels is making her feel crazy now. The doctor she just visited made her feel crazy, too.
I’m feeling like it’s all my fault, you know? I should be able to sort this out for her. Am I sick? Am I broken?
Maybe I should just tell her to give up looking for answers since I am clearly no good at sorting information. It’s a lot to take in. Heart is complaining to me also and I don’t know what to tell her. This is probably way too much information to give to a relative stranger, but I guess I don’t know who to talk to. Everyone in this body seems so sad and confused nowadays.
On another note, the Patient is concerned about the pain she has not just during her period, but also around ovulation and other random times, too. Since you’re related to the Endometrium family, do you have any idea what that could be?
Texts from Endo:
Yes, I hate to break it to you, but the Patient does sound a little coocoo. Maybe you should take a break and encourage the Eyes to stop reading so much. Like I always say, too much information is dangerous. If the doctor doesn’t know what is wrong with her, that means it is probably all your fault.
Maybe you should look into some medications to help you relax. You don’t want her to go completely insane all because of you, do you?
As far as the pain that seems to be so frequent, no, I don’t have a clue. I’m minding my own business over here, just some little tissues, just chillin’. I mean, if she has pain that often, do you think maybe she’s just depressed? Maybe she needs to exercise more. I strongly urge you to let it go or look into medication. I mean, at the end of the day, are health and sanity really that important? You should focus on getting her to accept her reality and find a way of getting her to calm down.
Hope this helps.
