The sad truth about women's health. We need more research into Endometriosis! As a person living with the disease, which has now caused anemia and fibromyalgia symptoms as well, it is frustrating to not have an end in sight and suffer through pain daily. Not just cramps but all over body pain and a monthly dose of passing out and complete weakness. I used to workout 6 days a week and now I'm excited to be able to work in my yard, go for a long walk, or enjoy a fun day with my family. I used to be fit and full of energy but my body is taking on the high estrogen and weight gain that comes with it as well weakness and cancer scares. We need more research into women's health โ™ก Though you may have your opinion of Amy Schumer, she's taking a stand and saying what needs to be said about women and women's health. She says it like it is and if you are offended by that, ask yourself why. The reality is its 2019 and the world still focuses on a man's inconveniences as a primary concern. We need more focus on women and their needs!

Having endo has nothing to do with anything you did. It's not because You're weak or a sissy when it comes to pain. You don't have to 'Buck Up' and take it. Endo is not a life threatening disease, but it does take away your life. . . . . . #live #laugh #love #life #endo #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #pain #hospital #book #treatment #bookonendo #bookonendometriosis #endosufferer #endometriosissufferer #sufferer #suffered #read #recommend #redommendedbook #recommended

Itโ€™s been a while and Iโ€™m sorry for not being able to write something about #endometriosis and #adenomyosis for months now. These two conditions that are also called โ€œinvisible illnessโ€ are affecting 1 out of 10 women worldwide. Iโ€™m sharing again the blog post from last year. The herbal supplements are listed for those who want to try and alleviate their sufferings. Some may work well for you, some may not ๐Ÿ˜” I just hope that more research and studies can be done to help #endosufferer like us.

Just a reminder that you are beautiful, your feelings are valid and real and that you are stronger than you think ๐Ÿ’ž . . Iโ€™ve struggled this week feeling really low and generally just not myself. The pain is constantly there, Iโ€™m so exhausted I canโ€™t even explain and Iโ€™m anxious for my next hospital appointment which is next week. Iโ€™ve been feeling like a big fat tired horrible mess and just want to feel like me again. So this is just a reminder to anyone else feeling the same that you are not alone and we can do this ๐Ÿ’– . . . #chronicillness #invisibleillness #mentalhealth #awareness #exhausted #tired #notinthemood #chronicfatigue #coffeetimeagain #endometriosis #endoawareness #endosisters #endowarriors #endopain #endosufferer #stomachepain #chronicpain #hellobeautiful #chanel #cutemug #homedecor #prettymug
my first pilates session went down a treat... it was challenging but in a very good way. I was surprised just how relaxed I felt afterwards, and slightly nauseous (probably should eat something beforehand next time ๐Ÿ‘Œ) so I've booked myself in for a full course starting next week. my consultant at the hospital suggested pilates, pain clinic and change of pill... the three P's. here goes nothing!
Pads, pads, pads! What is stopping you from trying cloth pads? Have you already had a go? Are you apprehensive about washing and use?

If you can't see an illness, don't be ignorant and believe it's not there! Unless you've bled internally, pee red, have ovary parties or the constant aches, pains and fatigue, you just don't know! I'm on day one of my cycle. I'm bleeding internally. It hurts. ๐Ÿ˜”๐Ÿ˜” #endometriosisawareness #endosufferer #yellowribbon #raiseawareness
This just made me so proud to be involved with the Endo Community to raise awareness of this devastating disease and its impact on couples. #endocommunity #endoawarenessmonth2019 #endoconference #endomarch #endosufferer #endowhat #endoemtriosis #endo #endoawareness #endofoundation
Yesterday was international endometriosis awareness month. 1 in 10 women* suffer from this insidious disease, me included. Iโ€™m about to have my 5th surgery in the past 9 years to try and help the pain and symptoms of endometriosis, even for a short while (2nd surgery was official diagnosis and my 3rd surgery was a bit more than a year later). 176 million people world wide suffer from this disease, the same amount of sufferers of diabetes, but receive little funding. Yesterday, mum and Aaron came with me to the endometriosis Australia high tea in Sydney. Endometriosis needs more awareness and more funding. Love to all the endo warriors out there ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’› *not all women have endometriosis. Trans men can have it too. #endo #endometriosis #endometriosisawarenessday #endometriosisawareness #endometriosisawarenessmonth #endosiblings #endosufferer #endowarrior #pain #1outof10
Iโ€™m so glad to be back at home after 5 days in hospital. I canโ€™t fault the NHS and the care I received but itโ€™s definitely easier to rest in the comfort of my own home and with @justinbutcher looking after me. Iโ€™m excited to wear clothes again after 5 days of hospital gowns and nightwear although Iโ€™m a little restricted with what I can actually wear due to another week of having a catheter and wearing a bag on my leg....itโ€™s as well Iโ€™ve a wardrobe full of dresses and long skirts!! Got a few deliveries while of some bits I ordered online while under the influence of strong pain meds....so trying to decide what to wear...not a bad problem to have ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜ #recoveringathome #endometriosisawareness #endosufferer #endosisters #day6postsurgery #endometriosisexcision #mididress #midiskirt #catheterization
๐ŸŒธENDOMETRIOSIS & WEIGHT๐ŸŒธ . . I see so many ladies with endo struggling with their weight. When youโ€™re fighting an illness that makes you feel tired, gives you pain, makes you feel low, working out can be HARD, cooking meals can be HARD. For me personally, I just want to curl up at the end of each day with some nice food and not move & this has gotten me into a big rut! Iโ€™ve watched the weight pile on which in turn, makes me feel even worse. Itโ€™s like a vicious circle and a constant battle with myself. Iโ€™m sure many of you ladies can relate to this. . . Well Iโ€™ve decided that todayโ€™s to the day I get my life back! Iโ€™ve bought myself a lovely new mermaid notebook to keep track of my food and a glittery mermaid water bottle to keep track of my water intake ๐Ÿ’ฆ(does anyone else buy themselves shit for motivation ? ๐Ÿ˜‚) Iโ€™ve also dug out my #Fitbit so that I can track my dog walks & any exercise I do (when I feel ready). . . For such a long time, Iโ€™ve been kidding myself into thinking that I donโ€™t care how I look or how I feel or what other people thing of my weight gain. I felt that this was the best attitude to have but probably only to protect myself. In reality, I feel miserable & Iโ€™m not afraid to admit that now. So Iโ€™ve decided to do something about it. Itโ€™s not going to be easy.. there will be days when I feel too tired to work out or in too much pain to stand and cook a meal. But Iโ€™m not going to use Endometriosis as an excuse anymore and let it dictate my life. The bottom line is, Endometriosis or not, Iโ€™m lazy, I eat WAY too much of the wrong foods and Iโ€™m unfit. Itโ€™s time to change that โ›…๏ธ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ . . . #endowarrior #battlingendo #endosufferer #endosisters #motivation #weekendmotivation #healthyliving #fitness #fitnessmotivation #helpmereachmygoal #endometriosis #endoawareness #workout #healthyeating #foodplanning #settingtargets #timeforchange #womenshealth #weekendmotivation #workout #training #gymmotivation #foodprep #mealplanning #mealprep
๐Ÿ’€๐“Ÿ๐“ช๐“ฒ๐“ท๐Ÿ’€ Last few days it has been consuming me. I havenโ€™t slept worth shit. Smoking is the only thing getting me through as I currently am without a doctor and it is hell for me to get to the hospital and wait with my toddler, only to be told that nothing is โ€œan emergencyโ€ and to go home or go to a walk-in. I have exhausted all resources as I wait for my gynaecologist appointment on April in hopes he might sign a medical marijuana form for me so I donโ€™t become hopelessly broke just trying to survive. My left ovary felt as if someone was twisting it over and over again last night. This morning it feels as if something is scratching the inside of my hip bone on that side. Lung/shoulder ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธpain is making every position horribly uncomfortable. Inhale.

My recovery has been a little up and down. I was excited to be off oxygen and have catheter removed yesterday only to have them both back again within an hour. Itโ€™s all very normal part of recovery from endometriosis excision surgery, patience is needed to give your body time to recover and heal. Iโ€™m trying to remember to take deep breaths so that I donโ€™t have to go back on oxygen but unfortunately the catheter looks likely to stay for a week.....it will probably be coming home with me ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฒ I had another visit from one of my surgeons this morning who is very pleased with my progress which is helping to keep me positive. I canโ€™t fault the staff at St Maryโ€™s hospital, they are so caring and helpful which most certainly is making my hospital stay more bearable. One major downside is the food and no matter how positive I am trying to be the food is beyond disgusting!! ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿคฎ #endometriosis #surgery #hospital #recovery #grateful #endometriosisawareness #endo #endometriosisawarenessmonth #endosisters #endosufferer #stage4endometriosis
๐Ÿ“‹A letter to my doctors๐Ÿ“‹โฃ โฃ Dear doctors,โฃ I am not a drug seeker. I donโ€™t come to you for a morphine fix. I come for answers to unrelenting pain. I am a 20year old mom. I am going broke because I canโ€™t work. I am struggling daily to just exist never mind be a good parent due to this disease. I come for help. But instead Iโ€™m turned away yet again. The other day someone told me that I โ€œlook sickโ€. Damn. Itโ€™s gotten to the point where my body is showing signs on the outside of how sick I really am. Yet somehow Iโ€™m not sick enough to get help? Tell me again Iโ€™m not disabled when I have to call my fiancรฉ to rush home from work to take me to the hospital (again) because the pain is too much and I canโ€™t stand let alone hold my daughter. Or when Iโ€™ve fainted so many times I stop being alarmed when a bruise appears on my face or body. Or when Iโ€™m in so much agony no pain relief method touches it but I know going to the hospital wonโ€™t do me any good because I will just be sent away. Please, this needs to change. Endometriosis is a full body disease that is so incredibly overlooked and undermined. We want treatment, we want help, we want pain relief. We donโ€™t just want drugs.โฃ โฃ Sincerely,โฃ ๐’ช๐“ƒ๐‘’ ๐“ˆ๐’พ๐’ธ๐“€ ๐‘”๐’พ๐“‡๐“โฃ #endometriosis #endosufferer #endowarrior #endometriosisawareness #pain #chronicillness #invisibleillness #chronicpain #endomom #endometriosistattoo #girlswithink #girlswhosmoke #deardoctors #letterboardquotes #letterboard #sickgirl #sickgirlclub #endotribe #spoonie #spooniesisterhood #scoliosis #thespoonienetwork

Why do advertising companies for pads use blue liquid instead of red? Why the shyness regarding something that is completely natural? When I received my endometriosis diagnosis in 2010, my first response was โ€“ what the hell is that? Iโ€™d never discussed my period with friends. If I had, would I be where I am today? Having believed Iโ€™d finally found the problem to all the pain I still suffer from, I thought things would be alright. However, I hadnโ€™t known that Iโ€™d needed to understand the disease and the effect it would have on my body. Even now, endometriosis is a minefield, but the way forward for all the women who suffer from it is to talk about it. To share their stories. To help each other. I wanted to write this journey because I need to finally feel what Iโ€™ve been through. Women are good at brushing aside their problems; or are guilty of not feeling their way through hard situations because they deal with things. We just deal. For me, I need to feel what Iโ€™ve been through so that I can finally heal. I hope that writing this helps someone who is either struggling with endometriosis or who wants to know what to expect with I.V.F.

Iโ€™ve had two big mood swings, had waves of sickness and felt very, very anxious ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I hate it!!

Itโ€™s time ๐Ÿ˜ซ... So Iโ€™ve put off taking the pill for the last year. This was for loads of different reasons; I HATE putting any kind of s*** into my body, I hated the way it was making me feel, I always forgot to take it! ๐Ÿ™ˆ bringing on a lovely bit of spotting every time ... the list goes on!! However, my pain is becoming unbearable recently and Iโ€™ve been told I need to try 3-6 months back on the pill, weโ€™ll then look at propstap injections or a 3rd operation. Iโ€™m honestly gutted at all 3 of these outcomes ๐Ÿ˜ฅ I hate that this illness dictates what Iโ€™ve got to do with my life/body! If youโ€™ve read my previous posts youโ€™ll know I have a phobia of treatment .. particularly the pill or the injections.

Say it louder for the people in the back โ€œLAPAROSCOPY IS THE ONLY TRUE WAY TO DIAGNOSE ENDOMETRIOSISโ€ While MRI and ULTRASOUND can show *some* indication of #endometriosis the only 100% way to be diagnosed is surgery. ๐Ÿ’›What does this mean? Years of suffering with no answers. Average of 7-10 years before being diagnosed ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿ’›Many insurances do not cover โ€œexploratory surgeryโ€ so patients are left undiagnosed and suffering until other side affects cause worse damage forcing surgery ๐Ÿ˜ก ๐Ÿ’›Doctors see โ€œall tests are fineโ€ and dismiss patients as having anxiety or depression. โ€œItโ€™s all in their head.โ€ This is UNACCEPTABLE!

#endometriosisawarenessmonth #marchisendometriosisawarenessmonth I'm struggling with endo today. ๐Ÿ’› It's a bleed internal day ๐Ÿ˜” After being 'officially' diagnosed in 2011โ€” although I'd struggled for about 6 years before that. In 2011/12 I went through 3 rounds of IVF. All failed. And after the pain and pressure those injections put on my body, I had 5 hour surgeryโ€”thanks to bowel being attached to uterusโ€” in 2014. The pain and struggle is real people. I'm STRONG. I'm AMAZING. I fight this every damn day. And some days suck a*rse. We need to help others and spread the word.
