Endometriosis is a chronic and invalidating gynecological pathology occurring in about 5-10% of women in fertile age causing endometrial-like cells to grow in areas different from the uterine cavity. The survey aims to investigate the bio-psychological impact that the illness symptoms involve, leading to a progressive and utter conviction to become totally unable to cope and reach their own personal aims in life. When the disease burst in a woman life with painful and severely conditioning symptoms, its impact represents a sort of "watershed" dividing her existence in two parts: how it used to be before the illness and what sort of life it has become. Women suffering this condition have to face the three-dimensional partition of their life, past-present-future, bluntly interrupting the sense of continuity, and this entails several forced and forceful life-style modifications, far from being their own conscious choices, among the range of behaviors that formerly were so typical. The disease inevitably leads to the sense of failure in respect of the personal life-plans fulfillment and establishes a fearful and doubtful climate, deteriorating the chances that such plans could really ever be achieved. What women affected by this syndrome have to face is the interruption of their linear identities, an inferiority complex, an absolute loss of the sense of life and a devastating discouragement.
