Hi! My name is Daria! First of all sorry if I make some mistakes but I’m Italian and I’m trying my best!

My journey started at the early age of 9 years old when I had my first period. It began already very painful and nobody knew why. 

I couldn’t go to school, I couldn’t walk and for everyone it was normal. Each doctor said that I was looking for attention, every woman suffers during the period. My mother took me everywhere until the depression started at 18, I couldn’t handle anymore. 

I couldn’t handle the doctors telling me I was being exaggerated when the pain was real as well as days in hospital with IVs. I couldn’t handle the doctors telling me I was crazy, that this kind of pain so strong doesn’t exist, it was my head, “you’re young” they told me, “  go out, drink some wine” and I could go on forever.

The pain was too strong.. it’s too strong, but at the age of 22 yeas old an angel told me that I have endometriosis and that I must immediately operate especially bowel, that I risked everything. 

I went to surgery, he saved my head, my part of body. 

I’m not okay, probably I have to do another surgery and I’m scared, the PAIN IS REAL but we’re here for you all. 

I still have a lot of pain, a lot of migraines, I still vomits a lot, I’m always tired and my back and legs sometimes feels like that don’t want to work. And the nausea is always with me, since day 1.

Be the expert in you.

Endometriosis exists and you don’t have to be scared to ask for help. 

I’m still under antidepressants and I’m still scared of doctors, I don’t trust anybody but in a certain way we have to try to be strong. It’s not simple, I still can’t make this work out.

But I hope that together as a community we can do something to not make us feel lonely.
