I am #1in10. One in ten women who suffer from endometriosis. Made in it just under the wire, but March was #endometriosisawarenessmonth, & I’ve been flooding my feeds with statistics, testimonies, and facts about #endometriosis in an effort to raise awareness (& hopefully funding for research & treatment) of this horrible disease which affects so many millions of women around the world. As my final Endo Awareness Month post, I’m accepting the challenge set by @theendo.co to put faces on the statistic “1 in 10”. I am so proud (& ALWAYS willing) to share my face, my struggles, my successes, & my story with you all, & I pray that the push for #endoawareness lasts well beyond the month of March! Much love to ALL the #1in10, my fellow #endosisters & to those who love, support, & guide us. 💛🌻💛 @endofound @endowhat @endoeducation @centerforendocare @endostrong @cosmiclotus.co @theendoproject #endowarriors #endostrong #endowarriorsofinstagram

#Repost @endowhat with @get_repost This could be my story, copied & pasted, word for word. And just like me, MILLIONS of women spend too many of their days missing out on life because of delays in diagnosis or outdated & ineffective treatments. Better advocacy for patients & better training/education for our physicians are two of the BEST ways imaginable to begin to make #endometriosis a thing of the past. #wematteracog #endowarriorsunite #endowarriorsofinstagram 💛🌻💛

For years I've missed out on my life. I've missed school, work, and family events because I was too sick to get out of bed. Doctors told me I had a low pain tolerance, that my pain was all in my head, that crippling periods were normal and that I just needed to grin and bear it. In reality, I had an invasive disease covering most of my organs.
This standard of treatment is far too common among the 176 million suffering from endometriosis. I deserve better. We all deserve better. Today, I’m speaking out to call on the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) to work with patient advocates and expert providers to change how this disease is treated.
Please COPY, PASTE & SHARE this post if you or someone you love has endometriosis. Together let’s show ACOG that we won’t stand by while 176 million people suffer in silence. #WeMatterACOG. Learn more about the protest at the link in bio. .

I have a very contentious relationship with the date March 1st. On March 1, 2005, at 19 years old & after years of battling severe chronic pelvic pain caused at first by widespread, Stage IV (severe) endometriosis, & then second by scar tissue adhesions formed after the MANY surgeries I’d had to diagnose & treat my endo, I made a decision that, even 13 years later, breaks my heart wide open—to have a complete hysterectomy. That decision in itself isn’t what breaks my heart. What really upsets me is that my story is SO common. According to @endofound ONE IN TEN American women suffer from endometriosis, and many go undiagnosed. They also estimate that approximately 176 MILLION WOMEN WORLDWIDE are affected by this disease—a disease for which there is NO cure & no definitive cause.

March 1st is also the first day of #nationalendometriosisawarenessmonth So, throughout the month of March, I’ll be using my social media to disseminate as much information as I can, including articles, new advances in research, and testimonials of women and their experience with this horrible disease (side note: if you or anyone you know would like to share your story, please feel free to message me here). And a very special thank-you to @kaitlinlewiskemp who sent me the photo attached to this post—this particular March 1st was a lot tougher than usual, & this quote helped me remember just how strong I really am 💛 #iamthestorm #endowarriorsofinstagram

I am 1 in 10 women who have #ENDOMETRIOSIS And March is #EndometriosisAwarnessMonth This illness affects every one across race, religion, sexual orientation, social economic groups, location, any age over puberty and affects any kind of health status. This is not just a “FEMALE” problem anymore, it affects us all. Throughout the month of March I, along with many of my #endosisters will share about this horrible illness. The fact that the average time it takes for a woman to get properly diagnosed is 7-10 years is and never was okay. It stops now with us. #WeNeedARealCure #NeedACure There is no true cure for Endometriosis despite the many myths out there that exist. All of March I will continue to share all I can to make you aware of this excruciating illness and all the lovely signs, symptoms and treatments. I hope you’re ready because it’s March and it is time everyone knew about this serious issue. #endometriosisiseveryonesproblem #notjustwomen #endosistersunite #endowarriors #endowarrior #endowarriorsofinstagram #1in10 #endobelly #insomnia #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #abdominalpain #pelvicpain #pelvicfloordysfunction #pelvicfloorspasms #ablation #excision #surgery #birthcontrol #birthcontrolisnotjustforpreventingpregnancy #invisibleillness #invisiblenomore #canhappentoanyone #endthestigma

On days when I top out at a 10 on the pain scale after a seven-hour shift at work, the only real prescription is my meds plus some comfy pillows and #Supernatural awesomeness. Hey, even #endowarriors need to be taken out of reality every once in a while... #endowarriorsofinstagram #spoonielife #alwayskeepfighting #spnfamily @jensenackles @jaredpadalecki @misha @ruthie_connell

@shindigweekender have posted set times already.
For someone who has a chronic illness and severe anxiety this is a blessing. I can plan where I'll be, when to go to the welfare tent and when to do yoga to help the pain.
First festival in 5 years, thanks @kittykatty1999 for helping me get my festival legs back. #shindigweekender #yoga #festival #anxiety #chronicillness #mentalhealth #endowarriorsofinstagram #endometriosis

The face you make when you have to take a break from housework because the pain is too much. #endowarriorsofinstagram #endoflare #endometriosis #pelvicpain #fuckhousework

Dear body,
Please let me leave the house for more than a couple of hours a week. I miss my mates and sunshine.
Regards
Fed up me

Catching up on shopping I should have done today but my oh-novaries decided to be a dick. My anxiety can cope with Asda at this time of night too.

Ugh cinema seats are the devil when you have Endometriosis but I loved beauty and the beast.

Thanks for grabbing this bargain of a blanket @bendydonut so snuggly, and thank you @snapchat for this filter as I'm struggling with an endo flare. The last dog walk of the day has pushed me over the edge. #bestie #snuggly #blanket #snapchat #snapchatfilter #blackandwhite #endowarriorsofinstagram #endometriosis #endowarrior #findacureforendometriosis #endoflare #ouch #swordsofathousandmen
