In this journey of being honest about my struggles and my life with endometriosis, people often ask :
“How do you manage to cook and make smoothies whilst having Endo? I really struggle!“
The truth is I DON’T manage. Social media only shows you the times I succeeded in getting out of bed and preparing food.
It doesn’t show you all the times all I ate was a cup of instant noodles, dry toast and maybe if I was lucky an apple
Doesn’t show all the times I ordered in because I couldn’t stand up.
Doesn’t show all the times I drank Pepsi by the litre and ate oreos by the box as I cried to myself on my sofa
Doesn’t show how full my freezer is of pre-prepared meals, from days I actually have energy, because sometimes I bleed so heavily whilst preparing food I have blood running down my legs.
Doesn’t show all the times I have tried and failed, all the times I just couldn’t no matter how much I wanted.
NEVER EVER feel like you are failing if you cant do it all!
Never ever feel like you should be living with this disease in any way different than what you are, you know what you can and cant do, only you live in your body.
We are all struggling. Its ok, its all going to be ok, somehow.
Stay strong fellow #endowarriors, I’m here with you in solidarity.
