This Woman Paints Realistic Images Of Endometriosis Pain And It's Incredible
Endometriosis is an invisible illness, but this artist shows what her pain on the inside would look like on the outside.
Meet Ellie Kammer! She's an artist based in Adelaide, Australia. And she lives with endometriosis.
Kammer was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016 after eight years of suffering without answers.
"After I received the diagnosis, I felt a loneliness I'd never experienced before," Kammer told BuzzFeed. She continued, "Not being able to understand my own pain, why pain would occur, or how to even treat/prevent it meant my life was grinding to a halt, and frustration would build to such an intense level that I was a wrecking ball of emotions."
