Dani

My name is Dani, I'm 28 and I was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis in April 2018 when I had to have emergency surgery to remove a 30cm-by-30cm cyst. I have had 4 surgeries in total over a period of 3 years. Due to the stage and impact the endometriosis is having on me I am classified as disabled.

The reason I decided to start the Northampton Support Group is because there is so little help here for women struggling to live with this condition. I want to be a sister to every endo warrior out there that needs that bit of extra support and knowledge.

About the support group:

Endometriosis is one of those conditions that can affect and impact on many aspects of your life. It’s not uncommon to feel completely lost and in the dark when you get diagnosed, I want the Northampton Support Group to show the light at the end of the tunnel. I would like to help give everyone affected by endometriosis the tools to help themselves and improve their quality of life.

In these sessions I want everyone to feel safe to talk freely in the knowledge that the people around them will not only understand what they are going through but would have lived it to some degree. Support from partners, family and friends is amazing, but support from people that can truly understand what you are going through is everything. No matter what stage you have been diagnosed with, or if you are waiting on a diagnosis, you are welcome to join and meet your endo family.
