Seven years ago today I received my Endometriosis diagnosis.
All of my pain had a cause. I had some type of confirmation.
And it’s been seven years of learning. Devouring any and all information I can get my hands on. Books, blogs, articles, medical studies. All of it.
And seven years of support: to others and from others.
Seven years of ups and downs. Emotional rollercoasters. Breakdowns. Uplifting moments. Times when I realized I’m stronger than I feel.
It’s been insane.
Seven years. Six surgeries. Five Endo walks.
So, to myself: happy diagnosiversary. You’ve come a long way, baby. And you’ve got the strength and support to keep going.
To fellow warriors: We’re in this together. Side by side, hand in hand.
To all of you, whether this is your first time here or you’re a long-time supporter: thank you. For everything.
To my surgical team and their staff: you’re amazing. Keep on doing what you’re doing.
And to my mom, husband, and Team Poo (you know who you are): I could not do this without you.
Onward and upward!
