My Story

This community came to life in the early hours of a Sunday morning in February 2020. I was writhing in agony, repeatedly visiting the hospital, and felt like nobody was listening to me. I was exhausted from feeling alone and ignored. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and create a community where people like me could find help and support, where they wouldn't have to feel alone anymore.

Initially, it was just a Wellington group, but it soon blossomed into a nationwide network. My own journey with endometriosis, PCOS, infertility, adhesions, and other ailments spanning almost two decades has been anything but smooth. It has felt like a never-ending rollercoaster ride that I can't get off. More recently, I have been diagnosed with other illnesses, and I'm seeing multiple specialists to find answers and manage things better.

I've undergone multiple surgeries to rid myself of endometriosis, suffered numerous pregnancy losses, spent countless hours in hospitals, and shed a river of tears. There have been times, as a single mother, when I've had my period for over six months. On some days, I went through more than one box of super tampons, and I needed an iron infusion because I bled so much. Between the cost of period products, taking time off work, going to doctors' appointments, and trying to manage life in general, I get it. I understand what it's like to have to fight for answers and be taken seriously.


I am a warrior, just like you.  That's why I created this group, to support and bring together people like us. Our illness may be invisible, but we are not. I want to help as many people as I can and, more than anything, I want you to know that you are not alone.
