We spend a lot of time talking about treating the physical symptoms of Endo and little looking at the inevitable impact it has on our mental health and wellbeing over time. I run an fb group to support eachother and share our experiences on how Endometriosis effects our mental health and it's knock on effect on us as individuals, our work, our relationships and the lives we lead.
Do you suffer with anxiety/depression because of Endometriosis?
Do you suffer with loss of identity/self worth because you can no longer do the job/activities you used to?
Do you find it difficult to find a sense of purpose in it all?
Are you struggling to see a way forward alongside managing your symptoms of Endometriosis?
Are the treatment options of surgery or hormones effecting your mental health?
Do you feel worn down with having to advocate for yourself whilst unwell with symptoms?
Are you facing difficulties trying to conceive, having fertility treatment or coping with infertility?
Feel free to share your story, thoughts, and experiences along with any resources you have found helpful. You can post your memes, gifs, vlogs, blogs, poems, and drawings too.
