Like many women around the world, I too suffer from endometriosis. What’s endometriosis they ask? Why are you so tired all the time? You look fine on the outside surely you’re not in that much pain?
Well let me tell you this, I started experiencing signs of endometriosis at the age of 23 with no idea what was happening to my body and multiple doctors turning me away telling me there was nothing wrong with me. Last week I turned 32. 9 years of almost constant pain and trying to remain strong can become draining if you ask me!
If you are reading this and you are unaware of what endometriosis is, it is a condition that affects a woman’s reproductive organs. It occurs when cells similar to those that line the uterus are found in other parts of the body. Those affects cause painful periods, lower abdominal, pain during intercourse, pain in the lower back and thighs, bowel symptoms, bladder symptoms, nausea, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, ovarian problems, INFERTILITY! And that’s just to name a few. It is a reduced quality of life!
An endometriosis suffer will try everything on the books to find a solution, only to be told over and over there is no cure there is no solution!
As I lay here on day 8 still cramped and nauseous after having tried yet another ‘fix’ that doesn’t seem to be working, thinking of the countless doctors visits, the money I have spent, the excuses I have made in life not to visit people or attend events because I’m ‘too tired’, the amount of times I have pushed myself to be at work everyday when essetinally I should be doing what my body tells me it wants, the contemplation of a hysterectomy at an age I should be thinking about having kids at by now. I am tired. I am tired of explaining what it’s like to have endometriosis and what it is exactly, I am tired of the constant pain, I am tired of pushing myself to the limits just to try and live a normal life. I want that normal life back PLEASE!
So I am asking you to please sign this petition and please share to your friends in hopes that we can raise awareness and get the message across to find a real solution!!! �
