Lena Dunham is and always has been the worst, but I don’t wish ill health on anyone, so it sucks that she’s got endometriosis. The condition, in layman’s terms, basically means your uterus hurts – sometimes severely – particularly during your period, and you could also face some fertility issues. However, it’s totally treatable and manageable with hormone therapy, pain medication, or in severe cases, surgery, and most people with endometriosis live a totally normal and active life… unless you’re Lena Dunham, and then you have to not only cancel your press tour, but announce it on Facebook, complete with artsy/angsty photo.
Apparently her doctors advised her that it’s “time to rest”, which… I’m not sure what she’s been doing lately that’s been so hardcore, but fair enough. Medical issues are serious and your physical health can totally be compromised by overworking. But why do we need some lengthy explanation and bullshit picture on social media to announce it? Honestly?
I’m obviously being hard on Lena because I can’t stand her, but I do feel like this is way too “special snowflake”. Shut up and deal with your health. Maybe spending less time on the Internet can count as your whole “rest” thing the doctors advised?
