I'm feeling all of the feelings this Mother's Day weekend.
It's the first Mother's Day without my Mom, and I seriously didn't think I'd loose it. But, I did. And, here I am.
I honestly didn't think that I'd loose it. Really. I remember sitting at my parents dinning room table in Texas across from my Dad and younger brother on July 2, 2015 thinking "December is really going to be tough." With it...

It's the last day of Endometriosis Awareness Week and I have had the honor and privilege to share the stories of other women who live with this disease over at my blog Educational Anarchy all week. 
Today I'm sharing "Endometriosis Myths vs Facts & Additional Information" 
Please remember-
"Information exists out there. Education yourself, find the reliable sources and spread them. Awareness is key. Become an advocate. Tell your story & scatter hope"
There is so much misinformation out there about Endometriosis. I wanted to close out Endometriosis Awareness Week this year with a list of Myths vs. Facts to help spread accurate awareness of this disease, and some additiona...

It's Endometriosis Awareness Week and I have the honor and privilege to share the stories of other women who live with this disease over at my blog Educational Anarchy for 7 whole days! 
Today I'm so excited and honored to be sharing my cousin Michelle's story with all of you. She will never, ever truly understand what a blessing she is to me as I make this journey, too.
Michelle's story is about education, advocacy, awareness, and being kind not only to yourself, but to those around you. 
"My life has revolved around endometriosis for quite some time, both professionally and personally. It changed the course of my entire being — in some bad ways, and in some really great ways. I would not be where I am now or have met the incredible women and professionals I have the privilege of collaborating with. I'm well (for now), after my long and difficult journey. Still, too many others are not well, and so for them, I fight onward.
Another reason why I chose to share my story is that there is a serious lack of education, funding and physicians that know how to properly treat this disease. If I can reach just one person by sharing my story, I feel like I have accomplished something."
I am so very excited to share Michelle's story with you today. Michelle is my cousin (through marriage, and only noting that because there is a worldwide study currently taking place in London on whether endometriosis is her...

Today I'm sharing Aubree's story (of Finding Peace With Endo) 
Aubree's story is about acceptance and self-love, and this statement is what rings true to me:
"When you feel bad all the time I suppose you get used to it. I didn’t realize how bad I felt until I started to feel better. And feeling better inspired me to feel even better."

I am very honored to share Aubree's story with all of you today. Very much so for selfish reasons, too. I have Aubree's book. It was passed along to me by my cousin Michelle (whose story you will be able to read tomorrow) ...

Since my Stage 4 Endometriosis diagnosis last September, I've had to make some severe changes in my diet.  I'll be attending the Gluten Free & Allergen Free Expo next month to learn more about food options that are safe for me.  Interested in attending the Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo in Schaumburg next month?  I'm giving away two separate one day passes right now.   
I am attending GFAF Expo as a Blogger. I was offered this giveaway for my blog. All opinions are mine. Since November of 2015 I've changed the way I consume and enjoy food. Having adopted an anti-inflammatory diet as a su...

Today I'm sharing "What Does Endometriosis Look Like".
"What I want to show you is what someone who has had four Lupron injections looks like.
Someone who has a decreased white blood cell count due to those Lupron injections, what she looks like.
What someone who is on Lupron with decreased white blood cell counts during flu season looks like.
I'm NOT this sick! And, that's what I'm angry about."
