Sheffield Support Group
Meg is the group leader for the Endometriosis UK Sheffield Support Group.
My story: Using the Endometriosis UK symptom questionnaire I worked out I had endo when I was 37 and I was formally diagnosed on laparoscopy aged 39. I had symptoms for at least 3 years beforehand. I have tried a fair few drug treatments and surgery, including a hysterectomy this year. I was desparate to meet other women with endo and wanted to join a group - the Sheffield one was inactive so I restarted it in 2012, I love running it! - Meg
About the support group: Our meetings are open to any sufferer and a supportive friend or family member is more than welcome. We have a range of speakers and the format of the meeting varies according to the session. The group is a place to find information, supprt and understanding with women in similar situations. We hope to raise awareness in the community and promote fundraising for EUK too!
You are not alone and support is there - I look forward to welcoming you to the group.
