I had a lot of interest but some decided they didn't feel confident enough to reveal all and others, life got in the way.
I was really lucky to share 11 stories from 11 incredibly brave women and I shared parts of my own.
Through these posts, I've had more women contacting me and an idea began to form. It's not as if it hasn't been done before but . . .
I will be placing these stories, plus others and some other bits and pieces both women with endometriosis and their families might find useful—into an eBook.
And so, #EndoLife was born.
What I want to see out of #EndoLife is change. I want talk of endo to just be the 'norm.' I want people to know exactly what endo is when they hear of it.
One of the ladies who shared her story, she said she'd received a lot of comments from her friends and family who hadn't realised the extent of her suffering. Also, several of them purchased tickets to our local EndoMarch event in Perth. This is pretty much the best outcome that blog post could have had.
Similarly, personal friends of mine have said this has all opened their eyes and it makes me want to push for more. More reach. More impact. Just, more. On the days I feel dizzy, foggy and dealing with bouts of nausea and pain, I can be guilty of thinking—is this all there is?
I don't want anyone with endo to feel alone. Because they aren't.
The eBook will have some tips, helpful bits and pieces, touch on treatments and I would really love the input of my physiotherapist.
I have no idea on release date at this time but will definitely update about that in the future.
