I am so glad you have found ways to deal with the disease. When I had it 15 years ago, no one was talking about it, in fact it was treated like something I had done wrong almost. People in my life, including myself, didn't take it seriously because there just wasn't any information about it.
Thank you for sharing your perspective and tips to help other women who have Endometriosis.
