Share Your Story: Rose of Sharon

handwritten: I need help!

“Rose of Sharon” was diagnosed when she was 26 years old.  Now 44, she comes to us (and you) for help.

Rose of Sharon’s Journey: For 19 years I suffered in silence ’cause no one took my condition seriously not even doctors! I feel as though I was cursed! Can’t keep a relationship, a job & a happy life. Endometriosis stole my entire life!

I have never gotten pregnant. Sex was excruciating, the very thought of intimacy was terrifying! For 19 yrs I have endured & continue to endure pains that left me thinking of suicide! I have been told by doctors after six surgeries that I have to just manage this demon disease! From day one of my menstrual cycle, it has been hell. I just cannot live like this but I don’t know what to do or try again! I NEED help!

Words of Advice for Us:  I live on other EndoSisters strength & advice but I will say this it’s not hidden no more. Awareness is the key to this terrible & demonic disease!!!

The Last Word: Please help find a cure!

I want to send a special Thank You out to Rose of Sharon for being brave enough to share her personal story, struggle, and victories with us today.  You are a beautiful, brave, and strong woman.  May you find the help you seek.

Paper with "Tell your story" written on it

And if YOU would like to share your story, please send it to me and I’ll share it.  The best part about this disease is the strong network of love and support from our fellow EndoSisters, and our friends and family, too.

Yours, Lisa.
