A place for endometriosis survivors & supporters, and all that goes with it.

At the forefront?

To all the women, the doctors, the nurses and naysayers who encourage us to procreate because hey, “By the time your/our daughters are old enough to have symptoms, they’ll have a cure for endometriosis,” I point you toward every ad I’ve ever seen to aid every other possible ailment. Limp dicks will (ironically) come first. Laugh lines will always come first. And apparently, even eyelashes will come first:

Full lashes! Tinted eyelids! Permanent changes to the color of your eye! And when you stop using it, your eyelashes will go back to the wimpy way they were. Also, it may make your eyeball explode from pressure (my own interjection, not theirs).

This is all coming from frustration and heavy thoughts. I promise I’ll go back and fill in the blanks from my first two weeks with Mirena. Many stories compressed: screaming, profanity, cramping, bleeding, antibiotics, more profanity, and being picked up off the side of the road by two loving, supportive friends.

But no. Except for a few — like those conducting genetic research at Juneau Biosciences — endo is not at anyone’s forefront.
