Grief and Loss

The thoughts, feelings, and reactions we experience when faced with change and loss, are known as grief. Grieving is a very individual process.

 

For those with endometriosis and other chronic illnesses, changes in health and lifestyle can cause a feeling of grief and loss. The type of grief that comes with chronic illness is complex, and there is no ‘right way’ to grieve.

Self-Advocacy

Self-advocacy helps to empower you, to speak up for yourself, and make decisions and choices that affect your life. You have the authority to be the expert on your life, nobody else knows how your feel or what you think and being your own self-advocate is important.
