For the last several months, many of you have heard me mention (often in vague terms) that I’ve been sick and going through diagnostic testing, feeling miserable, etc. But it’s time for me to stop being vague, and speak loudly and clearly about what is going on in my life for one simple reason. It is our urge to remain vague or not talk about our private struggles with “feminine problems” that allows Endometriosis to continue to be a largely silent struggle. It is not at all uncommon for a woman with endometriosis to go through 6-10 years of no answers before finally getting an accurate diagnosis. I am the 5th woman in my family to be diagnosed with endometriosis, and yet I didn’t know about it until a few months ago.

Now, I’m generally not the type of person who really champions a cause, but this statistic makes me angry for myself, and all the other women who have suffered for years all because we shy away from talking openly about what can at times be embarrassing symptoms.

In an effort to support the Endometriosis Research Center and in observance of March as Endometriosis Awareness Month, I am going to donate 100% of the proceeds of No One’s Angel during the month of March (ebook, print and audio editions included) to the Endometriosis Research Center, a non-profit dedicated to spreading accurate awareness about the disease as well as supporting those who suffer with it. http://kellywalker.net/lets-honest-endometriosis-awareness-month/
