"My name’s Shaunee, I’m 23, and I have endometriosis. From a young age, I normalised the chronic pain I was enduring because I wasn’t taught any different. I was led to believe that painful periods were just a normal part of growing up and being a woman".
Temi Labinjo, 34, is the Black & Ethnic Minority representative at Sheffield Hallam University Students’ Union and is working to raise awareness of endometriosis. This is her story.
A Westminster Hall debate on endometriosis workplace support has been scheduled for Tuesday 29 October 2019 in the House of Commons. Please get involved by emailing your MP and asking them to attend the debate, asking your MP to attend the debate by tagging them on social media, and by sharing your story on social media using the #endometriosisatwork.
"Having found my inner voice to be able to be open about my condition at work, coupled with the flexibility and support of my managers and peers has been the absolute antidote in allowing me to manage my endometriosis whilst maintaining a successful career as well."
