    This Is What Living With Endometriosis Is Actually Like

    Since endometriosis is an invisible illness, it's hard getting people to understand or believe what living with this is really like. So I recorded a week of my life.

    Hi everyone, my name is Lara and I have endometriosis among other pelvic floor conditions.

    However, since endometriosis is an invisible illness, I find that I have a hard time getting people to understand or believe what living with this is really like.

    Having something that never goes away is a difficult concept to grasp, even for someone actually living with it. The extra steps I have to take just to exist is something I wish more people were able to understand. So I decided to chronicle a week of my life with endometriosis in the hopes that you leave it having a better sense of what it's like to have a chronic, invisible illness like endometriosis. Also, it's very worth mentioning that I am one of the lucky ones who has health insurance and an income that will cover the cost of co-pays for acupuncture, physical therapy, and chiropractic work.
