I in 10 women suffer from the chronic auto-immune condition known as endometriosis.
I’m one of those ten – a condition I unfortunately inherited from my mother.
If you don’t know what endometriosis is, it is “[a] disease in which tissue similar to the lining inside the uterus … [is] found outside the uterus, where it induces a chronic inflammatory reaction that may result in scar tissue” (according to Endometriosis.org, 2019).
