It's all well and good saying we need to love ourselves more, but how do we even start on that journey, when we feel so much detachment or even hatred towards it?

In this post I talk about the self-loathing I experienced when I first began suffering with endometriosis, the negative affects of this and my tips for how I now care for my uterus.
