    13) Recovering From My Second Surgery and Moving Forward With A New Plan

    I am currently just over two weeks post surgery and I am recovering very fast. I am going back to work earlier than planned, as I feel so well. I feel like it will be good for me to get back to a normal life and be at work. Sitting at home and thinking about everything all day is no fun. The second surgery did not go to plan, as you are already aware, but I do have news regarding the next surgery and the plan moving forward. Lots of you have been asking me for an update, following my appointment with the new consultant, so I am sharing this news with you.  Read more

    11) Another Surgery Day And More Bad News :-(

    I have received so many wonderful messages from friends/family and other endo suffers, wishing me luck yesterday and wanting to know how it went. I have decided to write a very quick post to explain what happened. I wish I was able to tell you all good news but unfortunately the surgery did not go as we had hoped. In fact, it is the worst possible outcome right now.  Read more

    7) Kim…..Amazing Skin & Some Time Just For Me!!!

    I started having facials back in the spring of 2017. I was very skeptical when my mum bought me a voucher with her skin therapist, thinking that my skin was fine. After my first appointment I was instantly hooked. Introducing to you: Kim….your skins new best friend and the reason your bank account will be very sad every month!!! But all for good reasons! Kim has introduced me to Dermalogica products. My skin has thanked her ever since. I am now the proud owner of lots of dermalogica products and I have become obsessed with my skin care routine, which I have learnt is very important. Read more

    5) A Brand New Year and Feeling Positive for 2018

    It’s the 8th of January 2018 and I am walking with my head held high into a brand new year, full of positivity. I have been busy writing up blog content from the previous few months. I am excited to share my thoughts and feelings with you all, but feeling scared and apprehensive at the same time. I feel vulnerable and that is not an emotion I have felt much before the past year. Although sharing our journey seems like an easy thing to do….it definitely is not. I am not writing to offend others or make people feel sorry for me, I just want to help other women going through a similar situation and allow people to feel like they are not alone. It is also a way for me to let out my emotions. Everyone’s story is different and people deal with things in different ways.

    4) The Medical Menopause – The Truth!!!

    How do other women get through it? It is quite frankly horrific!

    I had my third implant on 5th January 2018 and I am not sure how my symptoms can get any worse. I had an emotional breakdown while I was with the nurse, her name is Pat and she is a wonderful lady. Pat didn’t seem shocked as she probably sees it everyday! She informed me that I will probably experience worse symptoms again. Great news! Read more

    3) Recovery, The Start Of The Menopause & Family Celebrations

    Recovering from a laparoscopy isn’t too fun…..although it is a fairly non-invasive procedure the air they put in your abdomen causes all kinds of issues. Firstly I really struggled to wee…..never an issue I have experienced before as it turns out that having endometriosis on your bladder makes you want to wee constantly!!! (although I only just realised this was the reason for my constant need to wee). Secondly I looked around 20 weeks pregnant due to the bloating…..which was a low point for me, as it made me more aware of the bump I was missing out on.  Read more
