If Endometriosis were a Person…

If Endometriosis were a person, she would be the meanest bitch you’ve ever met. I’m not talking big sister telling you you’re worthless kind of mean; I’m talking sadistic, gets-pleasure-from-ripping-out-your-insides mean.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would become your “frenemy” during adolescence and never leave you alone.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would laugh as you cried, curled up in agony during your period each month.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would have a magic wand that allowed her to inflict crippling pain and/or bloating on women at any time of their cycle.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would have telepathic capabilities that allow her to ruin your life. She would read your mind to thwart your visions of a happy future.

If you have an upcoming event that you’re looking forward to, she would use her magic wand to send you cramps and diarrhea. If you have a day at the beach planned, she would make you look instantly 15 pounds heavier with the flick of her wrist. If you wanted a baby she would seal up your ovaries with scar tissue and cause you unfathomable heartache.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would keep you up all night before a big presentation and punch you in the uterus right before you pitched your idea.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would slip you pills that give you migraines.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would teach you to curse being a female and dread menstruation.

If Endometriosis were a person, she would be the meanest bitch you’ve ever met.
