My Story:

Like so many others, I went for years (10+) without knowing the source of my pain and it was just put down to a "bad period".

And to be honest, it wasn't until I was on the phone to my sister complaining about my pain (mind you, 8 years into me seeking help for my pain/symptoms) that I heard about Endometriosis (she was studying it at uni).  So fast forward another 4 years and 1 month before my 30th birthday, I was diagnosed with Endometriosis via laparoscopy. 

It was after my diagnosis, after  I finally knew what was causing the pain that I knew I needed to do more. Talk about it more, share my story more and give back more. As cheesy as it sounds, I became a volunteer because I want to help those that are suffering from Endometriosis or those that are looking to get diagnosed. If I can direct them to the resources required to help speed up treatment or better advocate for themselves or to be even there for a wee 'blether and a cuppa', then I'm doing what I set out to do by becoming a volunteer. 

So if you live in Glasgow or the outskirts, or Stirling, or Falkirk, or Larbert, come to join us on our Facebook group or at our next meeting (see the upcoming meetings section).

We are so proud to say we are the biggest Endo UK support group in Scotland and would love for you to be a part of it.

About the support group:

Come along and chat all things endo!   Group meetings are currently delivered online so you can join from the comfort of your own home.  

The support group meeting is a safe space for people to come together in a peer supported environment. Many people living with endometriosis have found benefits in connecting with others to share the challenges and successes of their health journeys. 

The Glasgow support group has been running since 2012 and over the years group members have organised and hosted a mixture of wellbeing and educational events, this includes a endometriosis film screenings, a drop in information day and bake sale,  patient information days with speakers from clinical and traditional medicine practice.  

 If anyone has any specific topics they want to covered or speakers they would like to hear from then please get in touch
