Endometriosis: Don't Judge Us

Judgements happen within a blink of an eye. Within a moments passing, a thought, an opinion, is conjured up. Unfortunately for Endosisters, they happen more often than not. The most popular judgement we hear... "but you don't look sick". Don't be someone who makes that judgement. Behind every smile is a girl who has at one point been broken inside by Endometriosis. It breaks us physically and emotionally. The lengths we have to go to in order to survive some days is unreal. Just to put on a smile and carry on can be one of the hardest tasks. You may not see our scars. You may not see our pain. But trust me when I say you would never want to. Living with this chronic illness can at times be crippling. So, I may not look sick on the outside, as I pass you with a smile. But if you could see what my insides were doing to my own body, you'd soon change your mind.

I have Endometriosis. Endometriosis has me.

I sat in my room in complete darkness. Tears rolling down my face. I closed my eyes whilst wishing for things to get better. To feel better. Praying to be ok. To feel ok. I opened my eyes. Nothing had changed...

I still have Endometriosis. And at the moment, Endometriosis has me.
