Affects of Endometriosis

Endometriosis has made Liza more assertive ....

Endometriosis has most definitely affected every aspect of my life. Emotions, relationships, work, social, trust, faith, really, everything.
But, I believe we all know the negative.

There is a positive aspect from dealing with endometriosis. That is, I have learned to be more assertive; which in turn has helped me push my way forward in general life aspects; work, school and relationships.

I express myself when I am disappointed, and no longer wait for someone to ask me what's wrong. I ask questions when I don't understand, without feeling shame or embarrassment.

I would have never became this way, without me going through the pain and symptoms of endometriosis; my frustration with Dr.s, to disappointments in treatment and surgeries. It has made me learn to help myself, and push forward; no looking back!
