Welcome

Endometriosis Support


Friends are the flowers in life's garden

Welcome! My name is Sue and I have lived with endometriosis for a very LONG time. I was diagnosed with severe endometriosis 15 years ago at the age of 32. My diagnosis took a long 20 years to receive; my symptoms began at the age of 12. I will spare you the math ;0) – 35 years of living with 'endo' as I write this and I continue to struggle with the pain and issues of treatment that so often accompany this disease. While the focus of this site is endometriosis, I also have FMS/MPS (fibromyalgia/myofascial pain syndrome), diagnosed 10 years ago, so you will also find some discussion and sites listed on this topic, as others also deal with both endometriosis and fibromyalgia. I have been educating myself about endometriosis and FMS/MPS since my diagnosis. These are such difficult health problems and I feel that sharing with others and researching as much information as I can, has been key to coping with the many facets of these conditions. I have set up my homepage to help you do the same – offering you a warm and caring ‘home’ for sharing through forums and chat rooms and providing links to other sites that I have found helpful. Please take the time to check out the many links below. There is a wealth of information contained within! Knowledge IS Power! May you all find the path to wellness and freedom from your pain.

~  I welcome you to join us along this journey ~

   With Love & Hope, Sue
