A lot of women with endometriosis or those who suspect they have endometriosis want to know what other women experience with this disease. It greatly varies from woman to woman, which is why I think it's hard to diagnosis endometriosis in the first place and why it takes well over five years. This series will provide endometriosis snapshots so you can understand just how complicated endometriosis can be.
Today is an exciting day, ladies!
After some hard work and pushing through some bad pain/symptom days, I have finally completed a Google Form that will help provide us a snapshot summary of our sisters with endo, which will include their symptoms, along with other helpful information that will help spread awareness of endometriosis and hopefully teach other women who are struggling to find a diagnosis quicker by understanding how endometriosis affects woman differently and why it should be considered.
As I receive each form submission, my heart goes out to every woman that hits submit.
"This new series is going to be amazing! You will meet your endo-sisters and understand their endo symptoms and journey so you can learn from them and never feel alone."
I understand where they are coming from and sometimes their words make me cry because I know the struggle all too much. The fact that these women are willing to put this sensitive information out for other women to see is amazing and proves that we all really don’t want to see others go through what we have before.
And to start this series, I will be sharing my personal endometriosis snapshot with all of you. In the future, you will see more of our endo-sisters share their endometriosis story, in a summary style, and will be archived under “Meet Your Endo-Sisters” so you can find them easily.
If you want to share your endo story this way or know someone else who would, please use this link to submit your experience with endometriosis with our Google Form: https://goo.gl/forms/mrPIoyNYJnESyjmF2
Now, let’s kick off Endometriosis Awareness Month and start being heard so we can find a damn cure!
