My Story:

Long story short, it took me 17 years to get officially diagnosed with Endometriosis. I was finally diagnosed in August 2016, after laparoscopic surgery, aged 31. I  had another operation on my endo in May this year and am now awaiting further consultation at a specialist endo centre due to the severity of my disease.

I volunteered to be the support group leader for mid Wales to help raise awareness and offer support to other local ladies with this condition. Growing up and living in mid Wales it can feel a bit lonely, especially when faced with a long-term health condition as we tend to fall in between the cracks living in such a rural area, so I wanted to ensure my fellow endo sufferers had a safe space and a friendly face when they need it most.

About the support group:

This group has been set up to give women living in Mid Wales a safe space to share stories and experiences, find out information on managing and living with Endometriosis and to forge new friendships. We aim to meet six times a year with alternate social meet ups and informative sessions with guest speakers. Please sign up to the mailing list to keep up to date on the latest news and upcoming events. Looking forward to meeting you!
