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.
