Living with Endometriosis

Ok, so I am currently curled up on the couch after being sent home from work because of Endometriosis. I need someone to rant to. I need someone to express my pain and frustration to. So, here you are (apologies in advance). Let’s just set the record straight before we go any further. Endometriosis isn’t just period pain. Yes, its severe cramping during your menstrual cycle but, I have pain during ovulation, intercourse and twinges in my cervix almost every day. It’s basically when the lining that grows inside your womb starts to grow in other places like the cervix, uterus etc. This lining sheds the same ways as it does in the womb but, unlike when the womb sheds it doesn’t have anywhere to go. This in turn causes a degree of internal bleeding leading to painful scar tissue. This can also slow down how quickly you become pregnant. There’s no way to be 100% sure that this is my diagnosis without going under general anaesthetic and having a gynaecologist look around. It’s something …

Instagram: A love hate relationship

A Womens Struggle.

  Hello Strangers! I can’t believe its been so long since I last posted anything on here. I stumbled across it when I was on the laptop and forgot how much work I have put into my blog and felt incredibly sad. Infact, I think I neglected it because I worried too much about what others thought of me. Anyway, a lot has changed since I last posted. I have my own house with Ross and we have had two career changes. All for the better may I add. I had a thought recently and have been struggling for a little while now and wondered how many other women feel the same… I am constantly torn between being an independent, successful business women and a comfortable, supportive, house proud wife to be. Instagram is one of the biggest reasons for this. Everyday I seen bloggers, business women and general successful women and I get a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach. I want that. I constantly find myself goggling ‘how to make money …
