Meet the Support Group Leader(s)
Diagnosed back in 2002, I took a ‘Doctor fix me’ approach for well over 16 years. Realising that I need to take control of my own health in 2016, I found the Endometriosis UK Cambridge Support Group and now help Laura manage the group. I am excited about the things we have in store and realise the importance of sharing and confiding in a safe environment with others who understand this condition.
I was diagnosed with endometriosis in January 2014 having suffered from symptoms for over 10 years. I was provided with very little information at the time but found support through the Endometriosis UK online community. Having discovered that there was no support group in my local area, I decided to establish a group as I believe that the chance to meet people in person increases the opportunity to be able to openly share experiences and build a sense of community amongst those affected by the condition.
