The worst thing about #endometriosis, is not about the @pain, you can learn to survive the Pain, the #worst thing is letting those close to me down at the last moment.
This is the one thing I can’t learn to survive is disappointing those closet to me.

#Friends, no matter what #endometriosis throws at me these guys are always there to support me


#Day6 #endometriosis #photochallenge2015 @endohappy
No. Of #surgeries 3 in total, 1st surgery was major surgery due the size and complications of the cyst in which I lost my left ovary due to damage. At the surgery I was diagnosed with Stage 4. In 2013 and 2014 two further laparoscopy to remove Endo and cysts

Day 3 – EVERYDAY I wake up , put on that smile to hide the true face of Endometriosis, hiding I am broken and out of order. Everyday I hold on to #hope, hold on for the pain to end

It took 24years to be diagnosed with #endometriosis. Over the years my periods got worse, the pain got more and more intense, lasting longer and longer. In 2010 GP and hospital visits were getting more frequent, every time I was eating I was being sick. It took an emergency visit to hospital and my partner demanding that action was taken as he had enough of the medical profession fobbing me off. In June 2011 I had emergency surgery after a week in hospital, I had a midline incision due a large cyst wrapped around my left ovary which had also entwined into my bowel. I lost my left ovary along with removal of Endometriosis. I was diagnosed with Stage4 endometriosis



#Day2, #endometriosisawarenessmonth
#Happy. What makes me happy is the quality time spent with my partner and my furbaby, Sonny. These 2 are with me through thick and thin, and time with them both is precious to me. Having #endometriosis has made me so much stronger that no matter what I will alway #fightlikeagirl  @fitchickwithendo #photochallenge2015


#Day2 #Endometriosis #photochallenge2015. I first started to show signs of Endometriosis at the early age of 11 years old. The pain was not as severe in the early days, during my monthly cycle it was painful but my God my periods were so heavy that I remember my mum buying me Bridget Jones style underwear with a plastic lining to support wear a extra extra large and think sanitary towel as I could not and still cannot use a tampon as its too painful. I can honestly say school during these moments were horrid that I would do anything to take time out of school. @endohappy #endometriosisawarenessmonth  #2015


Here is the 2nd photo challenge for endometriosis awareness month 2015. This challenge has been setup by #Endohappy on all social media sites. Day 1 is ‘Introductions’, so let me introduce myself, my name is Andrea and I am 39 years old. I live in Birmingham UK, born and bred in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, UK. 

Its that time of the year it’s March and time to promote awareness about Endometriosis. Here is the first of 2 photo challenges on social media for Endometriosis.

This photo challenge has been organised by #fitchickwithendo on Instagram. Day 1 is Endometriosis, so here is my photo that represents endometriosis. I am that 1 in 10 women out of 176 million women worldwide living with this silent, invisible disease.
