I am skydiving to show my support and raise funds for Endometriosis New Zealand

Auckland

Kia ora my name is Emily and I was diagnosed with Endometriosis in 2018, at the age of 19, after my Laparoscopic surgery and struggling for 4 years. When I was referred to a gynaecologist I was experiencing 3-4 month long periods, nausea, severe cramps, complete exhaustion, and an inability to keep food inside me. My surgeon found Endometriosis growing in 10 places in my abdomen, reaching organs in my rib cage. I was stoked that they had found it and done their best to fix me. But the toughest part of Endometriosis is that there is no “fixing” it. Six months later I was back in excruciating pain. Since then I’ve had ultrasound’s, MRI’s, and almost any ‘oscopy’ you can think of. Endometriosis has affected my relationship with myself, my body, my friends, my family, my studies, my job. It’s never just “a painful period”. The emotional impact endometriosis can have on women is so much more than I ever could have predicted.

Endometriosis NZ gives young girls and women access to information that they can use to understand that it’s okay to ask for help and demand answers regarding their health and wellbeing. Any koha that you can spare is so important for helping people, like myself, be made aware that what they are experiencing isn’t “normal” and receive the treatment they require.

Thank you for reading my story and for generously donating to this cause to help people, like myself, be made aware that what they are experiencing isn’t normal and push to receive treatment.
