I didn’t want to post this for a while as healing & resting was the most important thing after surgery 🙏🏼 But this is the reality of a young women’s life with Endometriosis.
Where, 1 in 10 girls from the age of their first period will suffer extensively, with the undeniable struggle of chronic pain, chronic fatigue, infertility, depression/isolation, problems with functioning relationships and difficulty fulfilling work & social commitments. Will wait 5-10 years just to be diagnosed and “feel heard” by quite frankly anyone who will listen, let alone be offered the right treatment. Will require minor surgery every few years. Amongst other offers of hope and temporary medical fixes; to give a break to this cure-less, painful, mentally & physically draining disease.
This is my second surgery in 3 years from one of the best hospitals in England which as expected, resulted in a shitty outcome. Sadly, that’s normality.
Just like many, I’m still no closer to treatment that works, if even to have a long enough break.
Despite all this, the past 7 “endo filled” years has led me to meet the most amazing, supportive and incredibly understanding people, especially friends and family🎗
Hope, strong-ass pain relief and hearing other women’s stories is what keeps us plodding on. •|•Every single 1 in 10 deserves to be heard and can do this. Because we continue to do so. Every. Single. Day. 💛🎗💪🏼✨•|•
