Meet the Support Group Leader(s)

Nicola

My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis is 2005, after suffering numerous years with ill health, heavy periods and bowel issues,  all of which at the time I thought was just normal.  My diagnosis came about when I was admitted to hospital with a bowel issue.  

Since my diagnosis I have met so many ladies with this same condition and now as group coordinator I hope to be able to bring us all together to discuss, support and share our experiences in a safe and confortable environment.

About the support group:

I hope these meetings help ease the sense of isolation and anxiety, by providing an environment to talk with others who understand what it means to live with this debilitating disease, vent our frustrations, celebrate our achievements, ask questions and share advice. On occasion we may also have special speakers who will speak on a variety of topics, aiming to arm ourselves with ways to manage the disease better. Partners, friends and family members who wish to discover more, are also invited to join us, unless specifically stated. The more people understand about endometriosis, the better!

It's important to know that you are not alone, and I look forward to meeting you.
