Regarding my previous post about me writing to my local mp to get this horrid disease recognised...
I would just like to say, I'm so glad to be the inspiration to you all for giving you the idea and a big well done to you all who have written to your own MP's. Let hope together we can all make a difference

Here is what I wrote to my MP if any of you would like to use it as a template;
My name is Shanice Stanier, I am 20 years old.
I am wondering if you could possibly help me. I got diagnosed with a condition called endometriosis in February last year, after suffering from chronic pain for so many years, I finally got a diagnosis.
It is believed to affect over 2 million women in the UK. It is a horrible, painful, debilitating condition that not only causes horrific pain, it also puts a strain on your family life, relationships, work life, mentality. We suffer with constant fatigue, tiredness, pain, but people do not understand what we are going through. It is also the main cause for infertility in the UK. I would just like to ask you if you could possibly help to get this disease recognised. People lose their jobs because of the condition, employers don't understand and think that it is just normal periods and think that we know when the pain is going to come on, but that is just not the case. Myself and a lot of other women think this disease should be classed as a disability, due to the symptoms of this horrible illness.
If you could do some research on this condition & possibly visit endometriosisUK on health unlocked and look at some of the posts on there and how this condition affects us ladies.
Thank you very much sir.
I look forward to a reply from you.
Lots of love girls xxxx
