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

#TBT to the first time I published my #endostory

I recently had to clean out my desk and pack up 10 years of memories and collectibles (and, let’s be honest, papers and condiments and dusty old fortunes). Among my discoveries: the long-lost copies of H Magazine from 2009, in which I lay out my excruciating and embarrassing first emergency room visit for extreme pelvic pain and heavy bleeding, describe some of the more graphic details of life with endometriosis for all my coworkers to read, and required our senior Graphics Editor to make a graphic of what endometriosis and adhesions look like. (Sorry not sorry, Steve.)

The story took a big edit and you can’t even find it online any more, since the magazine is no longer in print, but I was still happy — and maybe a little strangely nostalgic — to find these copies and to know they haven’t been totally lost and forgotten. I’d love to take another crack at this and rewrite this article, to update the facts and improve the prose. Maybe now that my schedule has “opened up,” as they say, I’ll have both the time and resolve to do so.

A new look: I know, it’s about time

Let me know what you think of the new look of the Endo Sucks! blog in the comments below!

Hopefully the change in theme will eliminate some of the problems people had with image sizes, but if you have any problems, please be sure to comment on the post in question.

Thanks for sticking with us since 2008 and our old format — which, I have found, isn’t even a theme offered by WordPress any more. Talk about vintage.
