I reached out to the endometriosis community and asked patients to come and meet up to speak about their experiences with the disease. What came from this was 8 hours of footage of patients bravely talking about their unbelievable journeys with endometriosis and infertility. Their stories were heartbreaking, yet their spirits unbreakable. They spoke from their hearts and from their souls. They talked about how devastating the disease has been and the impact it has had on their mental health. They talked about what gets them through the day and what gives them hope, despite their pain.
I am incredibly grateful to these brave souls who came and testified. I know their stories will help others. Many MANY thanks to Dr. Sallie Sarrel , Jen Rutner , April , Amanda , Marin , Lauren Tait, Lauren, Colleen, Chelsea Kern and Joe Faller, our needed male perspective, for your time and for sharing your story.
I have never been more proud of a project. I feel this represents so much of what I cover in my daily work counseling patients worldwide and through my group work through RESOLVE and EndoWarriors. The more we talk about these issues, the less patients will feel all alone.
You are not alone. We are all in this together.
