In February last year I underwent laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis, a chronic disease that affects 1 in 10 women. The surgery changed my life but I still have days of excruciating pain. There are mornings when getting out of bed seems overwhelming or going to the gym is just too much, but these days are thankfully fewer and far between. I still may have troubles with my fertility and future health complications, but this little bracelet gives me hope.
This bracelet by the @theendo.co is aiming to raise awareness and funds towards research into endometriosis, an area that is overwhelmingly underfunded and barely spoken about. So many women are unaware of their symptoms and often lead a life undiagnosed. I used to be embarrassed by my condition but not anymore. I post this in the hope other women will feel comfortable in asking difficult questions about their health and listen to their bodies - if something doesn't feel normal it probably isn't.
If you would like to purchase one of these gorgeous bracelets head across to @theendo.co and help to continue the conversation on women's health 💜 #endoawareness#pajamaarmy#lifestyle#womenshealth#endoactive
