Meet the Support Group Leader(s)

Vicky

Hi, I'm Vicky and I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2017.  In the grand scheme of things, I am aware that I had a fairly short diagnosis time (7 months) from when symptoms were impacting me on a daily basis. Although looking back, there were always signs since I started my periods aged 11 - heavy periods, severe cramps requiring time off school and work, fatigue, suspected appendicitis - but I had never heard of the condition until a few months before my confirmed diagnosis aged 29. 

I set up Endometriosis UK Dundee Support Group in January 2019 after attending meetings of my closest support group in Fife. I love that you don't have to justify yourself at meetings, you can simply just be. 

I continue to hope that the group is a useful means of support to people with suspected or diagnosed endometriosis along with their support networks and raise awareness of Endometriosis in my local area. 

About the support group:

My hope in setting up the Dundee support group is that it provides a safe and supportive environment for those with suspected or diagnosed Endo to share their experiences with the condition.  The group has been up and running since March 2019 and I'm open to suggestions of what topics people might want to discuss.  I enjoy seeing new and familiar faces at meetings and hope that others find it to be of benefit to them through their journey. 

General Session Information:

Meetings will be held in one of the seminar rooms within the School of Medicine at Ninewells Hospital (unless otherwise stated). These rooms can be accessed by entering the main Ninewells Hospital concourse and taking the turn off to the left before reception. Go through two sets of doors and the seminar rooms are on your right hand side. Details of what is on in each room is available on the door and is changed daily. These rooms are wheelchair accessible.

There is a coffee shop within the main concourse of Ninewells Hospital, which offers takeaway.

Parking within the hospital grounds is £2.40 for four hours (Sat nav: DD2 1UB). There is free parking available on Ninewells Avenue (the hill leading up to the turn off for the hospital) and Mariner Drive (Sat nav: DD2 1TY). Both of these locations would involve an uphill walk up to the hospital.
