Hi!

 

I'm Elaine, I’m based in Windermere, I have Stage 4 (severe) deep infiltrating endometriosis as well as Type 1 adenomyosis and I started the Endometriosis UK Cumbria Support Group in December 2019.

 

My intention was to bring together people from all corners of this vast county who have the disease so they feel less isolated, more understood and more supported. I’m glad to say it’s working!

 

We have even started to work on a common project that will allow us to raise awareness in the wider community and use our individual lived and sometimes painful experiences as a means to help others who may be struggling with the condition.

 

It’s also lovely to see people building friendships and socialising together with others who live near them outside of our meetings.

 

I hope this sounds like a community you'd like to be a part of.

If it does, I look forward to seeing you soon!

 

Elaine :)

About the support group:

Endometriosis UK Cumbria - Inform, Share & Support

Reaching and making a difference to those assigned female at birth who are struggling with the effect endometriosis has on their lives.

We aim to:

  • Provide information – We help you understand the condition through discussion, expert speakers and publication hand outs.
  • Give support – We create a safe, supportive and confidential environment to meet and talk with others who are experiencing/have experienced issues with endometriosis
  • Facilitate gender partnerships –  We encourage people of all genders to work together in this space to end menstrual taboo.
  • Partner with businesses - We encourage local companies to sign up to the Endometriosis Friendly Employer Scheme.
  • Make new friends and have fun together!
