Endometriosis Awareness Month: How I Have Dealt With Evil Endo …

I have been raising awareness of Endometriosis for just over nine years after being officially diagnosed with the enervating condition in January 2015. It wasn’t really talked about back then. I hadn’t even heard of Endometriosis until I was undergoing the op. All I remember was having debilitating periods for most of my later youth years into my early twenties. Fast…

The Struggles of Infertility: DEIVF Round 1, IVF Attempt No.2

I can’t wrap my head around the last month or so… It’s been challenge after challenge. Stress after stress. The past two-three weeks have been really really shit to be honest. I feel like a failure, that I’ve let my husband, our families and our friends down. I know so many of you were rooting for us and we appreciate…

Continuing To Raise Awareness For Endometriosis

I try to raise awareness about Endometriosis every March, and apologies that I’m a little (ok, a lot) late this year. Truthfully, it doesn’t matter which month you raise awareness for a chronic illness.

Finding Out I Have Endometriosis, 7 Years On

Now who remembers this blog post? It’s an oldie, and when I first had surgery to confirm I had Endometriosis. This was back in 2015.

I know a portion of you follow me because of my endo battles and my now stoma from my recent endo op. And I hope to raise as much awareness for this awful condition as I possibly can. As some may know, I was…

My IVF Story

I’ve been debating about posting this, because one, it’s really fucking personal, and two, this could potentially help someone going through IVF and fertility issues. As only my family and some of my close friends know, I just want to get my story out into the digital world. So here it goes… *deep breaths* Last year in January we went…

What It’s Really Like Living With A Stoma Bag

I had a major operation for Endometriosis at the end of June which led me to have a stoma bag for a year. I wanted to share the reality of living with a stoma bag with you. Some days can be tough, especially when it causes discomfort and is weighing down on the stoma. But other days, it’s absolutely fine…
