don’t ever let anyone tell you intense pain during your period is normal. don’t let anyone convince you that you’re just over reacting or complaining. your pain is valid. your distress is valid. YOU are valid.
endometriosis has an average of 10 years to be diagnosed because of the stigma around menstruation. 10 fucking years of pain so bad you can be vomiting uncontrollably for DAYS. 10 years of being belittled by every doctor because they simply don’t understand. 10 years of crying because why isn’t anyone taking your pain seriously.
you have to keep going, you have to keep fighting. fight even when no one believes you. fight because you deserve to live without pain.
