Evening fellow endo sisters 😊
It has definitely been a while since I was last logged onto this forum, I was last here in 2014 where I struggled with getting diagnosed. I then went onto having a lap and diathermy surgery for my endo. Had aprox a year totally symptom free .... but now it's back ... with a vengeance.
When I was symptom free I managed to piece my life back together. .. found the man of my dreams, a job I loved and had a healthy social life.
But as each week goes by, bit by bit the control i finally had back of my life is being prised out of my fingers.
Various gp referrals , sick notes, opiate based pain meds have now become my life... not what once I worked so hard to achieve
Until the day I decided to start my vlog! I finally had control of something again. I was able to reach hundreds of people about why I wasn't able to "pop out for a drink" , or why I was just so drained all the time. I was able to explain how this disease effected me and my life.
I want these videos to reach as many people as possible , endo sisters alike , families and friends of the sufferers , people who know or work with someone who struggles daily with endo..... anyone basically!
This has been my own therapy, it has pushed me waaaaaaayy beyond the boundaries that I put up for myself.
And I highly recommend doing it for yourself 😊, it has made me realise things I never knew about myself previously.
I'm so proud to have raised more awareness about this nasty disease.. so if you feel like you want to, please go give it a watch and a share
My partner and I have a lot more to come on the channel so stay tuned.
I love and respect all of you endo sisters! It may be a negative reason why we are all connected but it really is such a special community to belong in xxx
