My sister and cousin never knew that the cold and windy fall day nine years ago I went out alone “for fresh air” in the fields behind the barn (if they remember at all,) it wasn’t really allergies making my eyes so red when I returned. It was from bawling them out while I was gone because there they were with their beautiful babies and their talk of whose angel was starting to hold her head up and whose was starting to take steps alone and hold a spoon by himself. And there was I after my 3rd miscarriage and various procedures to correct my uterus and try to repair the damage to my pelvis done by endometriosis, damage I didn’t even know I had until my infertility heartbreak began.
Endometriosis sucks. It’s painful often to the point of curled-up-in-bed-fetally debilitation. It can mess with fertility. Mess with life. And all too often is marginalized or dismissed by doctors. And mostly misunderstood and incorrectly covered in the media.
BUT… my pal Jeanne at her Endo Blog is spearheading a petition you can sign (takes 2 MINS OR LESS TO FILL OUT) to spread awareness and FACTS about endometriosis. She’s submitting it with a letter to Oprah and The View. So please help if you can. Every signature counts!
