Awareness & Love

Awareness & Love

So it's #endometriosis awareness month and this was just a little quick doodle I did. For me this disease has been completely life changing. Ive had some of the toughest and most challening moments ever, that I never thought I'd survive. But I did, and ultimately, I'm tougher for it. It's going to be a bumpy ride from here on out but I refuse to let this debilitating disease stop me from living my life to the full and following my dreams.

Endometriosis sufferer's, YOU ARE NOT ALONE. Although there is a extreme lack of awareness, and understanding medically, you are TOUGH. You are STRONG. You endure despite everything, and I think that's pretty god damn special.

Spread the awareness! 💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛💛 #endo #endometriosisuk #endometriosisawarenessassociation #endowarrior #endosister #tough #strong #fighters #wearyellowforendo #endometriosismonth #pcos #polycyster #artist #ribbon #yellow #awareness

💛💛💛💛 thanks. Prior to an emergency op 4 weeks ago I had never heard of endo until the surgeon came post op and said we've excised severe endo from your bowel, ovaries and stomach lining! Q reaching for my phone and googling! It brought me to this site and thankfully I'm fully up to speed. I thought horrific periods were just bad luck for me. Now at least my family and friends can also understand why I've been so debilitated every month for nearly 25 years!!! 💛💛💛💛

It's such a shock to the system but a relief to know what is going on atleast! I thought that for years and years and as they got gradually worse I kept thinking surely it can't be this painful for everyone?! Everyone here is so amazing and helpful. You can just say how you're feeling and know you're not being judged and everyone knows exactly how you feel. 💛💛💛 in a way I'm glad for endo because it's introduced me to some lovely people!

Hope you're feeling better since your surgery!
