Kelly was 23 years old when she was diagnosed with Endometriosis. Two years later and living in England, she’s started her own blog to help spread awareness about this illness. But today Kelly tells us her story…
Kelly’s Journey: My name is Kelly and I’m a 25 year old woman who has been living with endometriosis since roughly 2003. I was diagnosed in January 2015 after laparoscopic surgery at the age of 23, fifteen days before I turned 24 years old. I have endo on my bladder, bowels and peritoneum (as far as I know – it has been over a year since I had a laparoscopy). I had never heard of endometriosis before August 2014 so I hope that I can help women who are newly diagnosed, women who are struggling with any aspect of ‘endo life’, partners of women who have endo, and also to raise awareness for those who have never heard of this condition that we wrestle with one a daily basis.
Words of Advice: You are not alone. We are all Endo Warriors and we will beat this!
The Last Word: I love the Bloomin’ Uterus blog 🙂 I had never read another endo-related blog before I started my own and I love how many I have found already.
I want to send a special Thank You out to Kelly for being brave enough to share her personal story with us today. You are a beautiful, brave, and strong woman. I was excited to stumble upon your blog the other day! Always wonderful to see EndoSisters doing all they can to reach out to others and help! Keep up the great work, Kelly! ❤
