Filling out this survey made me reflect on some issues about my 'condition'. That I used to be incredibly hard on myself for all of my life. As my 'condition' has been with me for most of my life (emotionally absent parents), I had never known that I was meant to feel different. A Naturopath who I hold in high regard, said to me recently: "You have lived your whole life as though through a frosted pane of glass. Many people in your condition are angry, bitter and resentful; but somehow you have managed to get over that - and that is something to be very proud of." I could see that other people were different, and I felt that 'someone' had decided not to give me what was given to other people as some sort of spiteful act. So yes, at that time I felt bitter and resentful towards the whole world. I also blamed myself with a vague feeling that I had done something wrong to deserve it. It was not until my late 30's that I began the long long journey of finding out what was wrong, why it was wrong, and what I could do about it. After several decades of that, I have now realised that all I had to do was learn to LOVE myself; not in a way that excuses all of my addictions; but in a way that I trust will eventually lead me to a place where I don't want/need my 'addictions', and that I am completely content and grateful for the way I really am. One of the biggest things that helped me was to learn to be grateful for simple and basic things; such as the beautiful trees, the song of a bird or interesting people. I used to be terrified of people in general, and of engaging with them. I am not completely there yet, not by a long shot; but I am, on a physical level, on my way. I have faith that when I do get there, all of my physical symptoms will be gone. I am now in my 60's and already physically healthier than I was for the first 3-4 decades of my life. My advice to all people in my condition - or not - is "Learn to Love yourself in a pure, honest and non-narcissistic way, and love others in just the same way."

hello EndoActivists - we love that you are so very generous with your time helping researchers who are studying endo. We have three surveys coming up that we hope you'll take part in.
The researchers - usually women and often endo patients as well - are always So grateful. The more of us that complete the surveys the stronger the results. A few years ago no-one was choosing to study endo - now we're thrilled so see so many out there. Watch this space!
PS I'm puppy sitting he's so cuddly - Bo I don't want to give you back!!

I'm over 50 now and have struggled with endo all my life - my daughter is now experiencing issues and trying to convince the Drs to look further into her issues is an up hill battle - we know our bodies and I wish the medical professional would listen!

At 56, the journey has been long and hard. This research is very important too so many ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ#beweller

As one of the researchers you have so kindly supported - a GIGANTIC thank you ๐Ÿ’›

I'm interested in the survey I have my first lap at the end of this month

I had my second laparoscopy yesterday so the pain is fresh. I love that endo is being researched. I do every survey you post!

Bo is gorgeous. I’ll do the surveys. I’ve suffered since I was 16 but not diagnosed until 33, I’m now 52

I’m happy to do them too

Oh you will want to get your own dog. They are the best especially when you are sick.

I keep getting tagged in the sbs myth or cure thing that featured the Chinese herbal medicine as "a cure". How many of you have tried TCM? Has it helped? The cost is high and I imagine on going for quite some time. #thecostofendo ... See MoreSee Less
