At age 9, I experienced my first menstrual cycle followed by endometriosis symptoms. Despite seeking medical treatment and support, for 17 years, I was constantly accused of attention seeking while neglected and misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, PCOS, PID, STD's, and made to believe that to be in pain is to be a woman. After a miscarriage and an anembryonic pregnancy at age 25, I was finally clinically diagnosed with endometriosis and adenomyosis.
At age 26, I was told that a hysterectomy or induced chemical menopause were my only treatment options left. I chose menopause and was later hospitalized for a DVT. My doctor, a top endometriosis specialist in North America, accused the hospital staff and I of lying about my blood clot, put me on indefinite blood thinners, and ignored my calls and emails when dismissing me from his care.
At age 25, I was also told I had precancerous cervical cells and would need to go through conization procedures on a yearly basis for the next five years. During my first procedure, arts-and-crafts looking scissors were used to remove two cone-sized biopsies from my cervix without any anesthesia or numbing. After experiencing six months of bleeding, I begged my gyno for help, but they denied me care because I denied getting another conization at the same time while also ignoring my requests for my biopsy results. I switched my care and received my reports indicating that there was nothing wrong with my cervix.
At age 27, I was diagnosed with ADD and prescribed amphetamines. I experienced temporary blindness, paralysis, onset stuttering, and collapsing. When I sought medical attention at the ER, I was dismissed as having anxiety and depression and told to continue taking the ADD medication. My symptoms worsened over time and my doctor began an investigation for multiple sclerosis while insisting prescriptions (SSRI's) for ADD and depression. Several different medical opinions later, it was insisted I was suffering from serotonin syndrome; being poisoned by the amphetamines.
The lack of care and urgency for women and people AFAB's healthcare, especially for womxn of colour, demands urgent and immediate change. This is the fight of my life and in some capacity, we all are in the fight of our lives living with endometriosis.
For some- a fight for the lives we use to have, for others- a fight for the lives we never had and for all of us- a fight for the lives we deserve to have.
I can’t express to you the overwhelming pain in my heart I feel for all of us but I can show you the abundance of love I have for all of us by developing the care paradigm that is rooted in the care we deserve.
Please join me this year in re-introducing endometriosis as a full body chronic, inflammatory disease with autoimmune like behaviours impacting 1 in 9 women, transgender and non-binary people; people AFAB.
Join me in shouting from every rooftop, making endometriosis the most discussed topic of the year because we are relentless in our voices being heard, our stories being shared and our care turned into one we deserve.
With love, strength and healing,
