The end of another week. And nearly the end of August! I hope you’re doing well.
Today’s quote goes out to the partners, spouses, significant others, friends, support systems, and loved ones of EndoWarriors, regardless of their sex of gender identity.
“Suffering should not define you as a woman! And just because you’re a man it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t affect you! HELP HER to remove the taboos and the loneliness surrounding this disease; be understanding, show empathy, and don’t accuse her of being sensitive, delicate, or overly dramatic – this is a big opportunity for you guys to show that you care and to be a real man!”
(Address, 2011 Endometriosis Foundation of America Blossom Ball)”
― Susan Sarandon
I’m lucky enough to have a partner who is understanding, strives to learn more, and is incredibly supportive. But not everyone is as lucky.
To read (or watch) Susan’s full speech from the 2011 Blossom Ball, head on over to the Endometriosis Foundation of America.
And if you ever need to talk, I’m right here.
