Hi, my names Halie. I’m 19 years old and I was diagnosed with endometriosis in November of this year and was told that there is a slim chance of being able to conceive children. I suffered for nearly a year from pain and cramps. Finally someone believed me when I told them something was wrong and that it wasn’t just “a bad case if menstrual cramps.”
Through my fight to be as strong as I can to win my battle with endometriosis I hope to reach out to the women out there that don’t realize how lucky they are when they are able to have children, it comes easy to them and not all of us will ever get to experience that. I also know how to be someone that the younger generation can look up to and say, “Wow! Look what she overcame.”
Coping with my disease has not been the easiest thing in the world and yes it still makes me tear up to hear that another one of my family members or friends is in the support of my fight, but I have yet to let if defy me and keep me from doing the things I always wanted. I hope my story is able to touch someone out there in the same fight as me because we have to stick together! 🙂 I may be a young fighter but it won’t get the best of me!
