Read Dieka ’s Endo Story below…
“It’s genetics and oh, before I forget there is no cure” I was told
I could not even pronounce the word that would change how my life will unfold.
This was a serious joke. Funny as hell cause I have never been sick before now all of a sudden UWI’s Gynae clinic became my new home.
There are times when I feel all alone, with no one to talk to so I stay in my ENDO zone.
Night after night, the tears that flow down my face waiting for the day that I end this ENDO race.
But little did I know that, that day will never come, so in the rented shack I called my own, I built a beautiful ENDO home.
The pain that I felt cannot be compared, and before I did my surgery I was full of fear.
It was a relief, after the surgery to think that this disease is finally gone. But, exactly one year later my symptoms have grown. Now I know surgery is not a cure and my stage 3 endometriosis seemed like the end of the world. The thought of infertility made me very depressed, but, thanks be to God because my womb has been blessed.
After 5 silent years of keeping my lips sealed, I am no longer afraid to speak of my ENDO ordeals.
