#150 – The Truth Behind My 30-Year Battle with Endometriosis

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds
In this episode, I share my personal story of how I’ve been silently battling endometriosis for over 30 years. My good friend Cathy Skelcher interviewed me. Cathy is the founder of Inner Revolution Coaching & Yoga with over 22 years of experience. We have an open and difficult conversation about what it’s like to suffer with endometriosis, how the disease is poorly understood with no known cause or cure at this time. 1 in 10 women are suffering with endo which means someone you know is quietly in pain. Our conversation is candid, please use earbuds if little ones are around.
