Hello, and Welcome to Endo-My-World.
I decided to start this blog as it is officially Endometriosis Awareness Month (March 2017) and so I’m hoping to share my story to raise awareness. I hope that by sharing my story I can help someone who is suffering to not feel alone, someone that has a loved one that is suffering to understand them better, and someone that has never heard of endometriosis to learn a little about it. Most women with Endo suffer in silence and go undiagnosed for years, that’s why awareness is so important.
I’m not going to go into all the official details; if you want to know detailed, factual information of the causes or symptoms then this is not the place for you. If that’s what you’re looking for, then you’d be best looking here: Endometriosis UK.
What I am going to do, is go into all the gory details of my experience. And I mean just that: GORY! No holes barred… in the literal sense. That’s right. Grim detail of my every day symptoms, struggles and frustrations.
If you think your stomach can handle it, then put the kettle on, get comfy, and be prepared to come along for the journey.
(PS – just in case, like me, you are not in the habit of reading blogs, just a little hint – you are meant to start from the bottom of the page and work your way up if you would like to read them in order. Or of course you can refer to the top post for the most up to date/relevant post).
