I've been struggling with Endometriosis since I am 13 years old. Please share your story if you can relate!
I feel like I’ve given EVERYONE in my life 110% of myself, making sure that they were okay, that they knew I was there for them, I would be the shoulder, the ear, the advice giver, I’d be everything for everyone. Just to make sure I didn’t lose any part of them.
NO ONE. && I mean NO ONE seems to care if they lose a part of me.
Why is it so hard to do what is best for me?
Why is it so hard for people to do the same for me?
Why am I like this?
I’ve been having issues with my women’s health for many years now. All women on both sides of my family have a history of fibroids and endometriosis. All of the women in my family have had a hysterectomy and went into early menopause because of it. Yet it’s taken me more than ten years to be heard by doctors. I have a specialist appointment in June and I’m hoping that I’ll get some answers.
It might be the end of Endometriosis Awareness month but that doesn’t mean we don’t keep fighting for advocacy and fighting for our doctors to listen to us. Sending love to all Endo warriors out there and all others who are trying to find answers about their women’s health, keep fighting.

I am an RA and I am planning to make my bulletin board themed toward Endo Awareness Month. I want to create a program for the women in my community who also suffer with Endo, PCOS, and other reproductive issues to gather together and provide information on their experience. Anyone have ideas about the programming or another concept??
