It’s time for my 2nd #luprondepotshot ... Last night my husband got to see first hand how I sit up all night next to him with night sweats and insomnia.. I don’t know if I wanna do the second one.. It’s done nothing for my pain while putting me through physical and mental Hell.. sometimes I would rather just deal with my endo pain... #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #stage4endowarrior💛 #bowelendometriosis #bladderendometriosis #thelifeofanendomom #theseshotssuckballs #justwanttofeelnormal

I have severe Stage IV Endo. I was diagnosed with Endometriosis at 19 years old. It has litterally made my life hell. I've undergone 15 surgeries, been to countless doctors, and have tried every treatment and medicine that exist. The pain comes back, the disease continues to grow. I decided to smile in my photo, because no matter what this disease throws my way, I am a warrior. 💛💪 "Who do you know that is 1 in 10?" @theendo.co #1in10 #iam1in10 #endometriosisawarenessmonth #photochallenge #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike

This is what Endometriosis looks like. Sleepless nights, restless and painful night where you can’t find a comfortable spot on your bed and trying to cry yourself to sleep since your pain medications aren’t even touching the surface of the pain. Even with a complete hysterectomy and many surgeries after, along with changing your diet so much that you can’t even enjoy a piece of chocolate because it has soy in it. Share your picture with the hashtag #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike to spread awareness of this horrible disease. #endometriosisawareness

Oh hey there 👋🏻 I thought I better introduce myself! That's me 👆🏻 I'm 24 and from the bottom of beautiful New Zealand. My Endo journey started when I was 18 but I've had symptoms since I was 10. I think being an adult is a bit like folding a fitted sheet, no one really knows what they're doing 😂 I have crazy curly and boofy hair but I recently cut it off to make one thing in my life a bit more manageable 💁🏼I'm an Aunty and I love it more than anything. Not being sure if I'll be able to have children is a huge concern for me but my little munchkins make it all worth it! I work at a wee country pub, which can be made difficult by my uterus trying to force it's way out.. I'm also a photographer and have my own wee business over at @fernmcaulay.photography 📷 I started @the_endocollection to connect with other women and to share and support! Direct message me if you wanna collaborate, just need to yarn or have a vent. 💕 Much love warriors xx #endometriosis #theendocollection #endowarrior #endosisters #support #love #endoeducation #intropost #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #selfie

Spent some time at SJP yesterday speaking with students about #endometriosis and #endometriosisawareness It is always so empowering getting to go back to this place and speak with young men and women about an issue that is so important to me. Knowledge is power, and getting to equip young men and women with the vocabulary and understanding necessary to advocate for themselves and the women in their lives is an incredible honor. Also, it was very windy!

Soooo, I'm chatting with some of my #endosisters in one of our support groups, when one of the ladies share this story: (repost with permission, sans name) Asked my doc yesterday (a new lousy doc) "Can you refer me to a pain mgt doc for my endo pain) "I'm sorry, we don't do that, besides, endo shouldn't cause pain". I went home and cried and cried. No more compassion in the health world. DOCTORS! SPECIALISTS! MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS! Y'all have GOT to do better! We NEED better! We DESERVE better! #fightingfiercely #endoawareness #weneedacure #fkendo #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike

#thisiswhatendometriosislookslike I slept well but woke up exhausted, I have a heating pad at my desk, I'm taking Tylenol like it's candy, I feel nauseated from the pain, I could work from home but am afraid I'd just sleep, sleep seems to be the only reprieve. I've been battling this for 2/3rds of my life and am thankful these intense times have been few and far between. Trying to keep things normal as well as just make it through the day.

Endometriosis Awareness Day 24: The effects and symptoms of #endometriosis are more than just physical. They are mental, emotional, sexual, social, and psychological. Get Educated, get Enlightened, get Empowered to #fightfiercely for research, funding, exposure, and ultimately A CURE! #fightingfiercely #effendo #healing #endosux #weneedacure #chronicpain #176million #endoawareness #womenshealth #endosisters #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike

Endometriosis Awareness Day 23: Endometriosis is NOT just a 'bad period'! In fact, although most commonly found in/around the reproductive system, it is NOT the only area #endometriosis can and has been found. One of the primary reasons that hysterectomy or pregnancy is NOT a cure! #fightingfiercely #educating #enlightening #empowering #chronicpain #womenshealth #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #effendo #weneedacure

Awareness Day 18: Endo Fatigue! YES its a thing, and it's VERY real! #fightingfiercely #fkenfo #endosux #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #fightlikeagirl #chronicpain #endosisters #endowarriors #ineedacure

#endometriosis Awareness Day 5: Though often touted by loved ones with very good intentions, I am often very frustrated and sometimes greatly annoyed when I am approached by different people offering me their various "cures" for Endometriosis. "Eat this, don't eat that, try this exercise, use these crystals, try hypnosis, have a baby, just get a hysterectomy, try this Juice, drink this tea, pray for healing..." While different combinations of medical and holistic treatment options often provide varying degrees of SYMPTOM relief, and even though expert excision surgery (the 'gold standard' in treatment options)has been known to decrease disease recurrence rates to as little as 15%, let me be absolutely, positively, exceedingly, and abundantly clear: THERE IS NO CURE (YET) FOR ENDOMETRIOSIS!!! #fightingfiercely #fkenfo #endoawareness #chronicpain #endosisters #educating #enlightening #empowering #community #endosux #weneedacure #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike

Sooooooooo, tonight I attended a holiday event called Conversation, Cocktails, and Cebration. During the 'conversation' portion of the event, our hostess talked about her experiences as a public speaker and a writing coach and was sharing with the audience how even though it can be scary, everyone should be encouraged to share their stories because they will likely find someone who has a "meee too", meaning that they could relate to your story. She then asked for two people to come up and talk about one of their highlights for 2016 and what they plan to do differently in 2017. Of course, I got volun-told (lol) to come up and share my story, and inevitably the conversation turned to endo. After I was done, and we got back to the mix and mingle and portion of things, this beautiful young lady walked over to me, leaned in close and said: " I'm a meeee tooo"! She then went on to share her powerful Endo story with me. We instantly connected and afterwards I gave her one of my yellow fighting fiercely bracelets that I'm always wearing. And of course she was immediately brought into the Endo Sisterhood! Times like these I love walking in my purpose and connecting with women when I least expect it! It's Times Like These that remind me, on the days when I don't think that is worth it, that it's totally and completely is! #fightingfiercely #endoawareness #endosisters #endowarriors #fightlikeagirl #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike

I swear sometimes it feels like this disease is literally trying to take me out...THIS is one of those times! #fightingfiercely #effendo #ineedacure #chronicpain #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike

SOOOOOOOO, I'm playing in the makeup box today fam! At the suggestion of my great friends at Sephora, I'm trying out Lancome's TEINT IDOLE ULTRA 24H FOUNDATION, a creamy, full coverage foundation that dries to a powdery matte finish. Now, as a staunch brand loyalist, who has been using bare essentials lose mineral powder for over 10 years, I was hesitant to try anything new. But, with my dry sensitive skin, moving into the cooler months, lately the powder has been faring kind of chalky and ashy on my skin. I was looking for something that was moisturizing, full coverage and not weighing heavy on my skin. So far, I love this! I didn't even have to use concealer with it, just a couple of extra passes over the hyperpigmented areas of my face. It is supposed to provide smudge and budge free coverage for up to 24 hours! Let's see how I fair for the rest of the day. So, what are you think fam, do we like or nah??? I took pics inside and outside for comparison... #beauty #makeup #sephora #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #fightingfiercely #endowarriors

Mannnn I tell ya, Endo fatigue is NO JOKE! It's only a little after mid-day and I already feel like I've been run over by a truck!! BUT, I have some incredibly amazing and powerful women to support today, so what does she do???? She shows up, gets dressed, puts on her FIERCE, and she FIGHTS!!! #fightingfiercely #endowarrior #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #endoawareness #effendo

Crazy What a year's difference can make!! Exactly one year ago I was waking up from my 3rd laparoscopic surgery in 13 years. Today I'm 18 weeks pregnant after a successful IVF frozen embryo transfer. I can't wait to meet little man Smith in October. Keep fighting!! It's all going to be worth it! ORIGINAL POST - Surgery didn't go 100% as planned. The bad news is that one of my Fallopian tubes had to be removed. Apparently, it was so swollen and covered in scar tissue and endometriosis that it no longer even resembled a Fallopian tube. The good news is that I'm recovering well, and my RE (who was also my surgeon) is still VERY optimistic that IVF will be successful in our future. I still 1 Fallopian tube, 2 ovaries full of eggs and a uterus. This is the silver lining that I'm focused on. #endo #endowarrior #endometriosis #endometriosissucks #infertility #infertilitysucks #thisiswhatinfertilitylookslike #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike

Story of my life but especially today. Not a good morning when you wake up with your typical endo pains mixing with your surgery pains 😖 but it won't stop me from doing what I need to get done today! 🎗 #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endometriosiswarrior #infertility #infertilitysucks #thisiswhatinfertilitylookslike #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #blogger #endometriosisblogger #ivfblogger #ttc #ttcsisters

Here's to HOPE!! I just got my IVF calendar! I'm so excited, scared, anxious, happy, every emotion in the IVF book, right now. My projected Egg Retrieval date is the 14th of September. This is crazy timing because that means that my birthday will fall during the TWW. But whatevs... I'm ready for this! I'm keeping my spirits high, my sky's blue and sunny, and I've already got massages booked. 😂 It looks like I'll be on Gonal-F and Menopur. LETS DO THIS!! :) #ivf #ivfhopeful #ivfpregnancy #endo #endosisters #endowarrior #endoawareness #endometriosis #thisiswhatendometriosislookslike #thisiswhatinfertilitylookslike #1in8
