Hearing the Endo Warrior’s Cry:
Empowering the Voice of Your Pain

"Even in the midst of a “bad day” as I called these moments, I was ready to push through. A part of me, the part that is socialized by our “suck it up” and “don’t be a baby” society, said I was just being weak...stop being so dramatic. No one believes you, anyway…"


Welcome to The Blossom Letter, a creative space where women impacted by endometriosis share advice, personal stories, artwork and more. We aim to lessen the stigma surrounding this disease by celebrating the beauty of the community. It’s time to believe in women and their voices, now more than ever. Happy reading.
