I want more people in my life to be aware and know about endo, where do I start?
If you want more people in your life to know more about Endo and you don't know where to start, I would suggest social media just posting out a couple every now and then of posts about Endo and maybe how you're feeling, because that way if they want to read it, they can.
If they don't, they can just scroll on past and you know that those people aren't interested.
For your closer circle it can sometimes be worth downloading some information off the internet and asking them to read it. But sitting down and having open, honest and frank conversations with them is really important.
Taking them along to support groups can be really beneficial. I've held a couple of support groups before, and the people that bring their partners along or their mums or their support group along, they really get something out of these sessions. I think it's really important that your closest support system know about Endo and know how it affects you because otherwise they can't help.
But if you don't feel like you can do it yourself, take them along to the support groups or download information. And that way you're doing as much as you can to inform them.
