Happy Diagnosiversary…

Candle shaped like the number 7 burning atop a sprinkled cake

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!
