Wow…I just reached 100 followers on this blog. Thank you all for following my blog, and for your continued support! It has been a very long road and your kind words and wisdom have made that journey manageable. When I started this blog, life was so different. I had less than 10 followers, high-school-level grammar, and many unknown
Six years and 100 followers later… Six years ago, I heard the term endometriosis for the first time in my life. Six years ago, I met my first “surgeon” who knew “everything” and how to “cure me.” Six years ago, I had my first surgery and had to overcome that emotional journey. Six years ago, it felt like my childhood had officially ended.
If any of you had told me that I would have reached this milestone, I wouldn’t have believed you. When I started this blog, I didn’t even expect to have one follower. I had no idea that there was a whole #endowarrior community out there of supportive women and amazing individuals who would take the time to read and comment on my posts. But also, I was okay with only have my original handful of followers. Because knowing that my hardships and lessons learned had the chance to help one other individual feel supported was enough.
Even though I never imagined getting here, I am grateful that I am. I am grateful that I can have a platform to share my experiences. I am especially thankful that I have the support of a community that understand my internal struggles. For instance, some days, it’s too hard to even share what I’m feeling/thinking with my loved ones. That is not because I’m afraid to do so, but rather, it would just take too much energy for me to do so. Also, my loved ones are an amazing support group, but they can never fully comprehend what it is like in my shoes.
So here’s to all of you amazing followers and here’s to 100 more! Thank you for sharing the journey with me, and I hope you’ll stick around to see what’s next to come.
