Why isn't more being done?!

So, yesterday I was ill with another flare up of endo so I felt depressed and crap but today I feel quite cross. For lots of other conditions, charities seem to be doing more to raise awareness but if you tell someone you have endo, they look at you as if you have two heads!

And then of course, you have to explain the condition for what feels like the millionth time.

I think I'm going to start a blog, not only because venting helps me to feel a bit better but because it might actually raise awareness.

There seems to be a yellow ribbon awareness badge but not very readily available, and on eBay only a small percentage of profit goes to endometriosis UK- such a shame.

What do you think ladies- any ideas for raising awareness? It would be great if we could start some kind of campaign to go viral on social media! I'd love to hear your thoughts and ideas, women all over the world need to help each other get through this debilitating condition.

It is very frustrating isn't it. I've lost an ovary and now a kidney due to endo yet people I've talked to don't realise it is a serious illness
