    This Artist Paints Realistic Images Of Endometriosis Pain And It's Incredible

    Endometriosis is an invisible illness, but this artist shows what their pain on the inside would look like on the outside.

    Meet Solomon Kammer! Solomon is an artist based in Adelaide, Australia. And they live 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. Solomon 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."

    So Solomon decided to channel those emotions into their artwork.

    Kammer continued: "I decided to create the first endometriosis painting as a pure release of all the rage and despair I was feeling. Quickly, I realized that I was not suffering alone. Once I published the images of my paintings online, people from across the globe were sharing, commenting on, and following the work."

    Kammer said that the response to their work so far has been interesting, and they hope it will continue to open people's eyes to the horrible realities of living with this disease, or any chronic illness.
