Today was one of those days when pain has been really bad.
Endo came to bite today, but it was ok, I worked from home, (I can do that, being the boss,) and I am calm, relaxed and looking after myself.
When pondering all the things I can’t do with this condition I reminded myself that in the 15 years I have had it I have accomplished an awful lot.
I graduated – twice in fact, with a BA and MA.
I have travelled and seen new places.
I have had my heart broken…
but maybe broken a couple myself (who knows).
I have had a career, freelanced in a portfolio of amazing jobs including teaching, researching, writing, designing and started my own company.
I have run a 10k, a couple of 5k’s with my eye on a half marathon one day.I love to get out on my bike when I can.
I have raised money for Endo UK and raised awareness.
I have made some lifelong friends and always had the love and laughter of my family.
I have my own little family, my amazing partner and my beautiful miracle daughters.
I have learnt so much more about my health, nutrition and complementary treatments than I would have done were endometriosis not in my life.
I might get there slower some days, but it’s not going to stop me.
