Bloggers Unite for EndoMarch: Week Five – Goals

February 15, 2014

Week Five. Halfway there! If you’d like a recap…

Week One: Basic Info
Week Two: Getting Personal
Week Three: An Open Letter to Congress
Week Four: An Interview

The goals for marching are threefold: Empower. Educate. Effect Change.

Oh how I love alliteration.

Since I am not able to attend and I am not really integrated in to the medical community I think my main goal here will be to EDUCATE. My goal is to EDUCATE THE PUBLIC ABOUT ENDOMETRIOSIS. And I think I’m doing just that by writing these posts.

But could I do more? Probably.

But I have a lot of other things going on right now. So I’m going to attempt to educate without making myself crazy about it.

First up: Educate patients.

Think you might have endometriosis? Check here and then ask your doctor.

Do you know you have endometriosis but need an excision specialist for surgery? Check out this map to find an endometriosis specialist (hopefully) near you.

As with any health condition it is wise to be your own advocate. Or, better yet, bring someone with you to your appointments. Always ask questions, do your own research and challenge your doctor if what she says doesn’t correspond to your research. Make her explain her reasoning.

And if you are experiencing severe pelvic pain on a regular basis don’t let anyone try to tell you that it’s normal. It’s not.
