Hi - I am Jody and lead the Lincoln Support Group. 

My story is like many others - I started to struggle as soon as my periods started. However, I thought it was normal and that maybe I had a low pain threshold. I was placed on the the birth control pill that for a number of years allowed me to lead a relatively normal life. In my twenties I stopped taking the pill and the pain returned, again I still thought it was normal! My boyfriend at the time said he thought I should see the doctor - it was the first time I had ever even heard the word endometriosis. I had a laparoscopy and it was confirmed - I was overjoyed, it had a name and I assumed it was something that would be easily cured. However, little by little the reality sunk in that this was a disease that was not going away and was going to impact so many aspects of my life. 

When I first met others with endometriosis it felt great - people who I didn't have to explain everything to, conversation flowed and through adversity grew life long friendships. I wanted to allow others with endometriosis to make these connections, so I started the Lincoln Endometriosis UK Support Group. 

We meet monthly and everyone is welcome! 

I look forward to meeting you soon.
