My pain started just after I hit puberty. I would cry with pains that would radiate down my legs, back and into my stomach; pain that would attack out of nowhere during school, the middle of the night, at a friend’s house, etc. At this time I was told a number of things were causing this but never connected it to endometriosis.
My hope for women battling with Endometriosis is that they are listened to, and that those listening really hear the suffering and pain that these women are describing. We are not women looking for attention, we are not women behaving like drama queens and we are certainly not women with pain that is in our heads.
Everyone loves a hot water bottle, but none more than those living with endometriosis and adenomyosis! Show your love on your sleeve, lapel, hat, bag!
The new SCRIP study, being conducted at University College London’s Lifespan Learning and Sleep Laboratory, led by doctoral researcher Zoe Zambelli is trying to understand what advice and services people with chronic pain are accessing regarding sleep management as well as pain management.
