I’ve posted this before but in light of Infertility Awareness Week I’m posting it again.

Just because people don't look sick, doesn't mean they aren't. Just because people don't have children, doesn't mean they don't want them.
.
To anyone who wants children but hasn’t been able to have them so far, I’m sending an ocean of love to you 💛

  • A big f**k you to flare up days ✨🖕🏼 Hot water bottles, wheat packs & hot baths work a treat but we’d love to know what other pharmacological and non pharmacological remedies other people use to help relieve them from endo pain.

  • Not all of us are meant to have children, not all of us want children, not all of us can have children. Some of us are all of the above. I am 1 in 8 & I’m still as worthy as every other woman. #infertilityawareness

  • I have been on orilissa for 5 months now; and yesterday I received their welcome package in the mail. ⁣
⁣
I was baffled and dumbfounded by what I read. ⁣
⁣
I am by no means bashing the drug, frig I take it and it helps me, And that is OKAY!!!! ⁣
⁣
The biggest problem I have is the lack of knowledge Abbvie has in regards to the disease that they create medication to aid with. ⁣
⁣
The biggest problem isn’t just that, there’s a bigger picture to it all. ⁣
⁣
MAJORITY of doctors and gynos receive their information from pharmaceutical companies. ⁣
So when you have women being dismissed for their symptoms over and over again, it’s mainly due to uneducated doctors. ⁣
⁣
In the abbvie welcome package I received a brochure about all things endo. ⁣
This brochure had NOTHING to do with orilissa it was strictly basic information on the disease. ⁣
⁣
- Their definition for endometriosis is wrong.⁣
- They talk about all theory’s of why we have endo. (The ONLY reason we have endo is due to genetics) ⁣
- There is zero talk about excision, yet they talk about hysterectomies needed. ⁣
⁣
These are the facts that I want each and every person on the face of the planet to know.⁣
⁣
- Endo is genetic, you are born with it. ⁣
- a hysterectomy will NOT cure your endo. ⁣
- Excision (proper removal of endometrial cells) is the gold standard of care and anything else is sub par and short term gain with long term pain.⁣
⁣
The problem is this is the vicious circle of issues. ⁣
If the doctors we are trusting to help us are being fed this highly inaccurate information, how are we supposed to move forward with proper care and proper answers. ⁣
⁣
When the doctors can’t answer your questions and give you proper care; than who will. ⁣
⁣
This is the exact reason why I started this page. If I knew then what I know now, how things would be so different.⁣
⁣

  • Veg (& fruit) for days 🥕🥬🌶 Inspired by @heal.endo to incorporate as many different varieties as possible. This week we’ve gone for purple asparagus, kumquats, wild garlic, rhubarb, flat beans, fennel and cardoons (which I’d never even heard of 🤷🏻‍♀️). We’ve also got beets, purple sprouting broccoli, purple and murasaki sweet potatoes, melon and different types of spring greens. All organic and as local as possible from @riverford - important for me because there’s a link between toxins and pesticides and endo. We do spend more now that we buy mostly organic food and it’s a huge privilege, but we save by eating out less and always taking lunch to work. There’s the EWG’s dirty dozen and clean 15 list if you want to avoid buying everything organic, which shows which foods are most and least likely to be full of pesticides and toxic rubbish. 💚

  • ПАЛАТА № 1 🛌⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Первая палата была самой большой в отделении. 🚪⠀⠀
⠀⠀
В ней на восьми кушетках напротив друг друга располагались женщины либо только что прооперированные, либо собирающиеся под нож.🔪⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Сложно передать атмосферу, которая царила в этих стенах. Измученные, уставшие, больные женщины старались быть сильными, справляться с болью и эмоциями, не падать духом и поддерживать друг друга. 💪🏼⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Кто-то спал, другие только пытались уснуть, третьи тихонько разговаривали, кто-то читал книгу, а кто-то даже наводил макияж (да-да, и такое было!).💄⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Именно эти женщины подготовили меня к операции. Морально, разумеется. Рассказали о подготовке, о правилах, о собственных ощущениях и эмоциях, и даже поделились секретными лайфхаками 😎⠀⠀
⠀⠀
(например, компрессионные чулки важно надевать перед операцией с утра до того, как ты успел встать с кровати. Кстати, именно это правило по стечению обстоятельств я и нарушила 😂).⠀⠀

  • This week has been rough with a lot of emotions and nerves with anticipation of this surgery. I just wanted to give a shout out, (I have had so much encouraging feedback, and messages from people, thank you 🙏🏻 I feel so loved) but in particular my Mom, she’s driving down from the mitten to see me, help care for my family during my downtime. She sent me this song the day of pre-ops and said it reminded her of me. The same week I received a prayer cloth with a rainbow 🌈 on it from my in-laws. #wordsofconfirmation #soblessed #endometriosis #endo #endometriosisawareness #1in10 #endosisters

  • Завершим наш разговор о пролактине и выясним как же правильно определить его уровень🧪👀
⠀
🔊Как мы уже выяснили ранее (#dfilippova_пролактин), пролактин – очень чувствительный ко многим внешним факторам гормон, и потому, чтобы получить максимально достоверные результаты обследования, необходимо соблюдать некоторые условия☝️
⠀
📌Сохраняйте в закладках конкретный перечень рекомендаций перед сдачей анализа крови на пролактин, а мне – Лайк❤️ за полезность😉
⠀
🔻Накануне перед сдачей крови на анализ воздержитесь от секса и стимуляции сосков, например, растиранием или горячим душем
⠀
🔻За сутки до проведения анализа откажитесь от посещения сауны (парилки)
⠀
🔻Кровь необходимо сдавать натощак. Не допускается есть, пить (все, кроме воды) минимум за 8 часов до сдачи анализа
⠀
🔻Анализ крови нужно сдавать утром, не позднее чем через 3 часа после пробуждения
⠀
🔻Избегайте эмоциональных всплесков, стрессовых ситуаций, физических нагрузок (в том числе, утренней зарядки, пробежки) минимум за 2-3 часа до сдачи крови
⠀
🔻Не курите перед сдачей крови
⠀
🔻За 15-30 минут до сдачи крови спокойно посидите и отдохните в приемной лаборатории.
⠀
🤔Спорный вопрос возникает по поводу того, имеет ли значение день менструального цикла у женщин.
🤓Прежде всего, замечу, что день всегда учитывается только у здоровых небеременных женщин с регулярным циклом, а поводом для определения пролактина часто служит его нарушение или отсутствие.
🧐Есть данные, что пролактин физиологически повышается во второй фазе менструального цикла и потому зачастую его рекомендуют сдавать (в разных источниках по разному) на 1-5, 3-5 или 5-7 день цикла.
💁‍♀️Однако, согласно алгоритму Эндокринологической Ассоциации день цикла для определения пролактина не важен.

  • I’m having a really hard time accepting certain changes that need to be made with this illness. It’s weird how we grip onto certain stuff and mourn it so fully. For me, it’s coffee and alcohol. That’s crazy, right? If you know something causes you pain, brings on a flair up and continues to leave you down for the count (for days), then why mourn the loss of it? Why not accept it? I’ll tell you why. Because those two things symbolize normalcy. They symbolize a life you had before chronic illness affected your every move. They symbolize nights with friends sharing a bottle of wine and feeling that silly little buzz that comes when you’re blissfully in the moment with people you adore. They symbolize mornings you used to have where you came into work early feeling productive and energized, you’d take a walk to the local cafe with you work bestie and grab a yummy latte while you prep for your next big campaign. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
We wrap food and beverages into our memories, into our everyday lives. So when you recognize that they are no longer serving you, and are in fact hurting you, it’s not an easy break up. It’s a little bit of back and forth. It’s cutting off cold turkey and then immediately relapsing because you crave the feeling you once had with them. ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I’m beginning to realize I have a complicated relationship with these little substances. I’m beginning to realize I have a complicated relationship with change. But mostly, I’m beginning to realize that my surgery last July was a tiny little blip in a huge/long/epic ride moving forward. I went from knowing nothing, doing the bare minimum of research, to now months later consuming as much information as I can to better understand how awful I’m feeling. It will be okay. It always is. But right now, I’m letting myself feel, mourn, freak the eff out over all of the tiny and big changes I’ll inevitably make until I find a new sense of normal and a new version of me. #endometriosis

  • So yesterday I was getting my nails done and as the woman was holding my hands she says to me, “Did I hurt you? You seem like you’re in pain” right as I got an incredibly sharp pain in my left pelvic area. It felt like somebody stabbed me with a knife and was slowly turning the knife. 😭 I was so surprised she could tell because I didn’t pull my hands away from her and I’m pretty sure I didn’t make a face at all.... (I’m sadly used to these pains popping up for an unwanted hello! 🤪) Maybe I DID and I’m not as tough as I thought I usually am when I experience these random bursts of pain?!! 🤷🏻‍♀️ Or maybe she’s a little psychic and she knew just from holding my hands?! ✨ I like to think it’s the second one and that I’m tough as hell! 💪 Anyways, I’ve been feeling so crappy the past few days and it’s the worst timing because I’m currently in the car with my family driving to Ohio. This is just like when I was with them driving to Maine in July. Can I just get a road trip where I’m not having issues with my uterus and my pelvic floor?!! Ugh! Well on the bright-side at least I’m off for a few days and on my way for a Wilcox family adventure! #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #invisibleillnessmyass #endometriosis #endo #endopain #endowarrior #endosisters #interstitialcystitis #pelvicfloordysfunction #pelvicfloordisorder #wheresthenextreststop #roadtrip #cincinnatihereicome #cincinnati #vegan #veganladyboss #veganlife

  • I was too hungry to wait. Pork chops with brown rice and corn. I got t from the cafeteria and luckily they have all their nutrition info available so this was tracked at 7 sp. hoping to have another loss this week. Fingers crossed!

  • i never realized how much i wanted to have a baby until i wasn’t sure if it was even an option. i think in the past i always took advantage of the idea that i would be able to have a child. and at this point, i don’t even know for sure if i can. 
i WISH this was a photo of a baby causing that belly pooch. 
instead it’s a belly full of disease. 
because of this, i have become someone who is overcome with anger and jealousy with every pregnancy announcement i see on social media. it is a HORRIBLE way to feel about something so joyous for the expectant mother and father. 
all i can hope is that i will get my chance at motherhood. i am so grateful that my disease was discovered early, so that just maybe, i will still have a shot at a family after surgery 🙏🏽 prayers for EVERYONE struggling with infertility, no matter the cause. it is a difficult thing to be told you can’t do one of the biggest things we were created to do as women: bear a child 💔
