I’m living as a Warrior with Yellow Ribbon on my chest

Sometimes life comes with surprises, I just woke up from a bad dream, within two months I was diagnosed as having endometriosis and it has spread to several organs of my body and is interfering with several other functions. I was crying and scared because I never imagined all this happening to me. Everything turns black and empty. I didn’t know what to do, and everything faded, I was confused and lost my way.

Don’t beat yourself up for not knowing the answers. You don’t always have to know who you are. You don’t have to have the big picture, or know where you’re heading. Sometimes, it’s enough just to know what you’re going to do next.”― Sophie Kinsella

Sometimes they think “endomitriosis-thingy” is just someone who exaggerates things they are stressing out about and it really doesn’t happen either, but they are wrong. They just have to read the literature more carefully, so that they understand that endometriosis is also caused because the uterus is “unique” or abnormal in shape as in general.

I don’t-feel-sorry- or sad when I have to be side by side with “my endo”, I just want to finish what I have to do. I don’t want to run away from reality anymore, I just want to be a different and better me. Now, I know what to eat — and not — I know when I have to stop and think wisely to let go of my ambitions.

I’m not tired, I’m just trying to understand what my body should do to support our lives in a more balanced and harmonious way, so that me -my endo — and my body — and all my organs, can work together and I hope we can live well.
