Endometriosis - @gtzpta86

“I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Endometriosis in 2015 during my first Laparoscopy surgery. I was also given a 1% chance of conceiving naturally due to the severity of my case. My doctor tried to clean me up as much as possible but unfortunately shortly after, the pain came back with a vengeance. During my post op my doctor discovered new endometriomas sprouting from my ovaries. This thing started attacking my body before I even had the chance to heal from my surgery. After several surgeries, including a laparotomy, and endless medication that resulted in the same outcome; I decided I was done. I felt defeated and quickly found myself in a very dark place. Thankfully, I reached a point where I was done victimizing myself. I realized I had been focusing on the wrong things and that I could make something out of this instead of dwelling about it! I decided to change my entire perspective and turned to holistic health (mind, body and spirit) and started to work from the inside out. By doing so, I have managed to significantly reduce my pain and I’m proud to say that I’m in the best shape of my life! As I reflect on my life with endometriosis, I can honestly say I’m grateful. Endometriosis has pushed me to become the best version of myself and most importantly it has thought me to embrace my beautiful life. My hope is that my story inspires other women to take a more holistic approach to healing and not rely solely on doctors and medication for treatment.” @gtzpta86
