Her name is Jennifer Lepage
She can no longer have any more surgeries, but needs another—unfortunately the risk is way too high for her.
I was diagnosed at age 19 years old, back in my day they say having a hysterectomy is a cure. The Dr said at age 27, let's do it.
I was one of the lucky ones who had my babies before it got worse, sad part of this disease it causes infertility.
Of course I know now this time of my life that isn't the cure it just complicates everything and spreads all over your insides like a plague. It spreads to so many organs everything sticks together and causes so much pain.
Since then I have had complications, surgery after surgery—14 stomach surgeries later I'm 43 and nothing in my insides are where they are suppose to be.
I grow tumors all over but thank god they are not cancer masses.
No cure to fix all what's left in me except stay strong keep fighting. It caused me to have no digestion to eat I live on just glucerna drinks and a jar of baby food.
Certain parts don't work anymore, I have nerve damage internally.
I'm told I am 80 years old internally and have a bad inflammatory anemia but as I look at this pic I say to this day—yes I made it I'm alive .
I have the most amazing happy supporting life of my family and friends Unconditional love is priceless.
To all who have endometriosis please keep fighting your fight, and for the ones who know someone who has it be kind to them .
I love you all thank you for being part of my journey, thank you for loving me for me and standing by my side every step of the way.
Thank you for reading this story!
