I’m Marion and I’m the support group leader for Grampian. I was finally diagnosed with endometriosis in December 2021. My symptoms became very pronounced in 2018, but looking back, I’ve had symptoms since I was 15.
When endometriosis was mentioned to me by a gynaecologist in 2019, I left with no information about the condition except that I needed a laparoscopy to diagnose it. I turned to Google to find out exactly what endometriosis was and where I could find support. It was a late night, can’t-sleep-for-pain search on Facebook that led me to the Dundee support group. It’s a very active group and the support and information I gained from it was invaluable. The support group leader, Vicky, has been incredible and it’s thanks to her and the rest of the team, my sanity remained intact through lockdown and my eventual diagnosis. I became part of the moderation team for Dundee in February and have loved every second.
When I heard that Grampian didn’t have a group leader, I jumped at the chance to help out. I hope to bring more support, information, engagement and laughter to the members. But, most of all, I want to be part of a team that brings the message about endometriosis to the forefront of women’s health.
