Spoonie Story: Jen

Hi my name is Jen, I am 29 years old and I have an 8 year old autistic son.

I was diagnosed with endometriosis when I was 20 and fibromyalgia just recently. I’ve had 7 surgeries including a complete hysterectomy & an appendectomy due to the endometriosis.

Every day is a battle with my hormone medication & my fibromyalgia. I now have gastrititis, gastroparesis & acid reflux. I used to be very active and now I have to rest often. I try not to allow my invisible disease pull me down.

Last year I went through severe depression but realized that’s not who I really am so I decided to get back up & keep pushing myself through life! If I can do it anyone can do it, find what motivates you!
