In 2014 I was incredibly sick with Endo and had been for years. At that time I
✖️Couldn’t work due to pain
✖️Barely made it to uni
✖️2nd laparoscopy with shocking recovery
✖️Awful pain and fatigue all the time
✖️Miserable. Flat. Didn’t see a future.
✖️Cried A LOT
If you told me then that in 18 months
✅I’d be pain free, learned how to self-manage my Endo, healthy, full of energy
✅Legalised a drug in Australia to treat Endo (Visanne)
✅Started a change.org petition with 75,000 signatures
✅Built an online community of nearly 8000 incredible people raising awareness of Endo together
✅Froze my eggs
✅Held a conference on Endometriosis at University of Sydney
✅Started my Masters in Health Communication at Sydney University
I would never ever ever ever have believed you in a million years. Ever.
For those of you who are struggling to cope, living in pain, can’t see a way out – I have been there!!
