About me

My name is Patricia, born in St. Croix U.S.V.I. In 2011, I was diagnosed with stage 4 Endometriosis, a condition I had never even heard of. Since then, it’s been a challenging journey. 

My purpose in creating this blog is to connect with women and young ladies facing similar struggles, offering support and sharing personal stories. I understand how difficult it is to discuss Endometriosis with others who may not understand. Through this platform, I aim to provide comfort and guidance, helping each other along the way.

I live with Endometriosis!

Do you? Living with this condition means facing constant pain and misunderstanding. It’s not just a minor inconvenience – it’s a serious medical issue that affects every aspect of daily life. From missing out on school to struggling through periods of extreme weakness due to heavy bleeding, Endometriosis takes its toll

Despite undergoing eight surgeries and enduring years of frustration, there’s still no cure in sight. It’s time to break the silence and raise awareness about the challenges faced by millions of women worldwide.

There is nothing dirty about it. No religious group is going to be pissed if you discuss this. Because if you don’t discuss it, many more women are going to find themselves unable to have children, or find themselves close to dying because it’s led to something else.
