Jessica Murnane has launched Know Your Endo, a comprehensive, simple and concrete platform for endometriosis awareness, education and support. Alongside that, she's running The Endo Toolkit online program, which supports anyone with endometriosis to learn about their disease and the best ways to manage it for them. There's expert advice, live sessions and a community page.
Enrolling on a course can sometimes feel like a big commitment, either financially or time wise. So I decided to chat with Jess to give you the low down on her course, so you can decide if it's good for you.
Last year was a great year for endometriosis in many ways (and menstrual freedom), we saw endometriosis debated in parliament across the UK and Australia, it continued to be covered by the press, and petitions made their way around the globe. If this year, you want to fight the patriarchy/end endometriosis/free the period there, are a number of ways we can change the experience of this disease for generations to come.
At the beginning of this week I talked about my experiences with friendships when life with endometriosis first began to get difficult - you can read all about that here. Recently, though it's been happening for a while, I've noticed I've started feeling better socially. The most important and noticeable of these changes, is the feeling that I am loved and accepted.
There's no denying it, unless you have a group of people in your life who are remarkably compassionate, understanding and accommodating, endometriosis can put a very real strain on your relationships. I felt it was important for me to share these difficulties, to raise awareness, let others feel they're not alone with their relationship struggles and to perhaps help family and friends of endometriosis warriors understand our inner battles with the disease.
