Endometriosis, Infertility, Miscarriage and Life in general
I am 32 years old, living with stage IV Endometriosis, possibly adenomyosis, PPD and struggled with infertility for almost 4 years. 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!
