Endometriosis can be a very isolating disease. Those who have it often feel like they are the only ones going through it. The quotes I’ve shared give readers a small glimpse into what it feels like to have endometriosis. I hope that by understanding how other women with endo feel, those without the disease will be more compassionate and understand why we sometimes need extra support. If you are struggling with endometriosis, know that you are not alone.
