Invisible illness can be lonely, confusing and consuming. There are many times you doubt yourself and the manifestation of the pain. Leaving your bed on somedays can feel like doing calculus, it has to be a calculated move. Some days the method makes sense and on other days, you don’t even know where to start.
The idea to start the Yellow Flower Network was birthed a few weeks ago when I realized that I want to support women in Kenya and give them the personal touch, but I am not physically able to.
My inbox is a buzz with women looking for support, women who have just had surgery, women who would like to meet other women to let them know that they are not going crazy, and that the pain is not all in their heads.
My desire is that no woman will walk alone, that every Endo-warrior will know that they are not alone. That the thing that tried to break her, will reveal a reservoir of strength and it will enable her to be encourage others.
If you are interested in supporting other Endo warriors in Kenya by texting, calling or visiting them when they are in need (in hospital, post surgery), please send me an email via firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be in touch.
To start us off, one of our Endo sisters, Jahmby, needs our help. Let us support her in any way that we can.
