Hey Lovelies, I hope you’re all warm and well.
This post is a little different to my usual content. It’s really personal. Something I’ve wanted to share for a long time. This is my journey to diagnosis. A mentally and physically challenging journey, going on for years and years. The point of this post is to share my story and create conversation on these topics. There’s thousands of girl out there with More than a bad period lets raise the awareness and support each other.
Let’s start from nearish the beginning.
Growing up, I didn’t really know anything was wrong. I kinda just thought this is what every girl my age must go through. We were never educated at school on women’s health issues and I guess I was just a little ignorant to everything..
Anyway, as time goes on I start talking to my girl friends more about periods and all that girly stuff. That’s kind of when I had a feeling something wasn’t right. I was shocked that some of my pals only had their periods for a few days, mine lasts well over a week and come and go as they please. I could never be prepared and all my plans were made according to my cycle.
