I’ve been living with endometriosis for some time now and I can safely say it has been a long, hard road. The physical pain has been immense, and the periodic flare-ups have caught me off guard too often. The mental pain from the overwhelming fatigue, anxiety, and depression has been just as challenging and draining.
Every day I’ve had to summon courage to take on the pain and move ahead. It hasn’t been easy. I’ve had to make huge adjustments to my daily routine, my work, and my social life. But with determination and the support of family and friends, I’ve been able to keep going.
The little victories, however small, have been my strength and motivation. I’ve come to realize that life can be unpredictable and difficult, but with hope and strength of character, I can keep pushing forward despite the pain. Endometriosis has taught me resilience and strength, and I won’t forget the lessons it has given me.
