The Struggle is Real

I have always had heavy periods since I was 12 years old. I was aware that I could have endometriosis since my Mom had it really bad and my Aunt. I started getting sicker and sicker each month I got my period. It got to a point where I was throwing up blood. My doctor started me on an experimental drug, but that ended up causing ocular migraines. I continue to battle each month. The cramping, heavy bleeding, throwing up, bad migraines, body aches, chest pains, etc. Will end someday.
