I am 35 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. I also struggled with PPD and now struggle with PMDD. I am a mother to a son that was born at 18 weeks and too precious for this earth; and now a mother to a son born in August 2011. By journaling here, I hope to benefit both for myself and for others that are dealing with this disease and fertility struggles. Thanks for visiting!

Endometriosis Awareness Month is coming soon!!!

And, don't forget your yellow shirts on March 1st!!!

Wearing yellow on March 1st shows support for endometriosis awareness, so you don't need to be an endo sufferer to get in on the fashion statement--loved ones of someone with endometriosis, or even just general supporters of increased awareness are welcome to participate!

My gorgeous nieces supporting the cause in 2009!

Allison,

Yes, March will be here in the blink of an eye!

It is encouraging that there has been a recent surge in signatures on the endometriosis awareness petition.

We now have 476 signatures! I honestly believe the petition helped get The Intelligencer newspaper to print a correction on that recent article involving endometriosis misinformation. :)
