So what is endometriosis? Most of us people who are born with a uterus experience period cramps sometimes in our lives. For people suffering from endometriosis these cramps are extreme and in many cases occurring every day or most days of the month instead of being solely related to the period. This pain is not reduced by ordinary painkillers and is often interfering with everyday activities such as work and social life.
As you can imagine it is not easy leading a normal life when you're afflicted by this disease. Yet the people suffering from endometriosis are very often subjected to distrust from doctors, employers and family members. It usually takes several years to get a diagnosis, and even after that there is not much to do about it. No cure, only the hope for relief through strong painkillers.
So what can you do about this? I think that the main thing all of us can do is show some understanding. Understanding towards a colleague, friend or family member who is often complaining about serious cramps. Because now you know that what can so easily be dismissed as "normal period cramps" might as well be quite a serious disease. A disease called endometriosis.
The color adopted by the endometriosis awareness movement is yellow, and therefore I have created a yellow eye look to honor the cause. Hope you like it!
