Rachel

My Story:

Hi, I'm Rachel, group leader for the Nottingham support group. I was diagnosed with endometriosis in November 2018 following a laparoscopy and my journey through diagnosis made me feel very strongly that peer support for sufferers of endometriosis is incredibly important so when I found out that there wasn't an active group in Nottingham I decided to apply to be a volunteer with Endometriosis UK and start one. 

A little about me. I live and work in Nottingham city and live alone with a very elderly cat. I have 2 grown up children and a 2 year old grandson (who is obviously the most wonderful child to ever walk the earth!) I have a lovely partner who has been, and continues to be, wonderfully supportive about my illness - we don't live together and I suspect that this is why we still like each other after several years together! I love live music and festivals so spend as much time as possible during the summer months dancing barefoot in fields. I also dabble a little in stand up comedy and perform a few times a year at small festivals and fundraiser gigs. 

I'm very excited to be starting a new support group and am looking forward to meeting people at the upcoming meetings. 

General Session Information:

Entry to the group meetings is through the visitors entrance at Asda, not the store entrance. The door is to the side of the store where there is a buzzer to gain entry. If unsure please ask at customer services for directions. There is a tram stop nearby and plentiful parking available in Asda car park.
