Endometriosis Sufferers: What Do You Wish People Knew About The Condition?

Endometriosis affects approximately 176 million people in the world, but is still seen as a mysterious condition.

Endometriosis is a condition in which tissue similar to the lining of the uterus is present in places of the body where it doesn’t belong, often causing debilitating pain.

There's been lots of discussion about it in the news lately, but we want to hear from people living with endometriosis: What are some things you wished others knew about the condition?

Perhaps you want people to know that it's way more than just bad period pain.

Are you sick of being told that having a baby will "cure" your problems?

Or maybe you just want to share a picture of some of the physical effects of the condition.

Whatever it may be, tell us what living with endometriosis is really like, and what you wish other people knew about it, and you could be featured in a future BuzzFeed Community post or video!
