Meet the Support Group Leader(s)

My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis formally via laparoscopy in March 2013 following years of speculation and it's the latest in a series of gynaecological diagnoses I have had over the past 11 years. After finding the Endometriosis UK forum really useful in helping me come to terms with my diagnosis, I thought I should give something back to the endometriosis community.

My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis back in 2011 after a lump was found in my bladder. My diagnosis was a mixture of relief it wasn’t anything worse, but frustration that so little is still known about the condition. I joined the support group in January 2014 and have been attending ever since! I feel having the opportunity to share with others is a great source of comfort and support.

About the support group:

Our meetings are an informal place to meet others in your position, to know you are not alone. Here, you can share your experiences and find comfort in others. You can also take comfort in knowing you are helping others. There will be speakers throughout the year on a range of subjects. The meetings will take place on the 2nd Tuesday of each month

I look forward to meeting you!
