Endometriosis Stole My Life For 6 Years – Video Blog Part 1
Now that I am almost 6-weeks post op for endometriosis excision surgery and a partial hysterectomy, I feel my brain slowly clearing up and my body is really starting to feel better. My energy levels are improving and I am sleeping through the night without having to wake up several times to use the bathroom!! Yes!
Unfortunately, my migraines have not gone away so that’s one thing I will still have to address after all of this but I am not in chronic pain anymore and my bladder issues are mostly resolved so I find that to be a HUGE win.
This video is the first part of my 4 part video series. Part 1 is just a 20-minute video – a quick snippet of the last 6-years and what I’ve been through. I get emotional just thinking about everything I’ve been through. How isolated, alone and depressed I’ve been for the last 3 years as my health declined. I want to help others realize Endometriosis is not just a bad period. It’s not just killer cramps. I suffered from so many other symptoms which I (and doctors) had no idea were a correlation with this horrific chronic illness. For now, my Endometriosis is being managed from my recent excision surgery. It can come back at any time, but I believe I can recognize the signs better and will at least not feel alone and confused in my own body.
This disease affects your ENTIRE life. I pushed through all the hurdles and I will push through the follow-up. Rest assured I will not allow Endometriosis to get the best of me. I hope you enjoy my story.

Thank you for sharing your story- so many people don’t know about endo.
I’m currently considering a hysterectomy as I’m in severe pain all the time and adenomyosis is a possibility.
I wanted to ask- how did you find out you had adenomyosis before deciding to have a hysterectomy? I’ve heard some people have been able to be diagnosed via MRI but most the time I hear it’s by a pathology report post hysterectomy.
Thank you again.
Your story is also mine. I am in tears. My hysterectomy was 6 days ago. I am still feeling pretty rough, but hopeful. Thank you for sharing.
