:: Invisible Illness ::
_
Does this look like someone living with a chronic condition to you?
Nope, right?
That's endometriosis.
It's invisible. Invasive. Inexplainable. And often infuriating.
_
"Well she looks fine to me!" Or "You were fine just a minute ago" Or "Ah it's just a normal part of being a woman" Or "It's all in your head" >>> Statements many of us endo girls will be all too familiar with.
_
When you live with an invisible illness you can spend a lot of time faking looking well and trying your best just to get on with things. However, when it all gets too much (and it does) when it come as quick as a flash of lightening (and it does) when you reach a time you’re so exhausted you can’t hide it anymore (and it does) this can be mistaken for faking being sick.
_
There's no truer place this unfolds than in the workplace. The pain can be debilitating. The list of symptoms exhausting. And yet all invisible to the naked eye so colleagues and employers have a hard time relating to or empathising with a condition like endometriosis, or in fact any condition they can’t see.
_
I worked in digital for 7 years. Across that time I missed out on promotions, was made to feel like the weakest link and constantly felt guilty for not working late. I wished I could have literally shown my teams the tiniest part of the pain, sickness and fatigue I experienced on a daily basis. Many amazing artists have captured the pain of endo in the form of bruises, cuts and wounds. That would have been so much easier for people to understand.
_
Endometriosis is truly misunderstood in the workplace. It’s the biggest reason for starting my PhD next year researching women’s true lived experience at work.
_
Thank you to so many of you who have already shared interest in supporting this project. I’m going to need and would love as many of you to get involved as possible. I’ll be updating everyone with info when it’s time.

So here’s to ensuring Endometriosis and Employment isn’t a contradiction in terms for the future ✨

This weather tho...😬 on days like this it’s even more important to keep your 🧠 right...swings help.

Suicide.
It's so common now that the sad fact is the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 is suicide.
We live in a world now we are so advanced that we can fight off most physical diseases and illnesses that mental illness has actually taken over as one of the biggest killers. But that can change, just by talking, just by speaking up and just by not being ashamed. I like to think that nowadays there is far less stigma attached to mental illness and talking about your feelings that there use to be even 10years ago. But there are still barriers, especially for men. It is not a weakness to need help. In fact it's a type of inner strength that you can be proud of when you take that first small step to say "I'm not okay." There are 7.5 billion people on this planet. There is someone for you to talk to. So don't hide it. Don't suffer in silence. Don't let suicide be the biggest killer of men under the age of 45 continue to be the biggest killer today.
Choose life. Choose to fight another day. Be a bad gambler and stay in the game because the next hand could be your winning hand.
