Chronic Pelvic Pain affects 1 in 5 women and 1 in 12 men at some point in their lives and has a significant impact on your quality of life. Let my blog help you advocate for yourself, better understand chronic pelvic pain and help you to find the care + support you deserve.
I have lived with chronic pelvic pain most of my life but had my symptoms dismissed and misdiagnosed for over 15 years. Since 2018 I have been diagnosed with Interstitial Cystitis/BPS, Endometriosis, Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia and Lupus (SLE).
I hope that what I share on my blog will help others advocate for themselves, better navigate the healthcare system and find the care and treatment they deserve.
I write as a hobby, to spread awareness and shine light on pelvic pain and my struggles living with chronic illness. What started as a coping strategy, has now turned into something that gives me great meaning and purpose.
I advocate to help ensure a better future for all and to assist pelvic pain patients and their families in coping with their chronic pain and emotional stress.
I create to put something good into the world. Since becoming chronically ill and unable to work as a designer, it gives me back a sense of purpose and achievement.
What The Community Is Saying
