Meg

My Story:

I have had problems from endometriosis for 9 years. Surgery and multiple medications couldn't get things under control so I went ahead with a hysterectomy in 2013. I've still got after effects of the endo and the surgery but things are much more under control now. Endo has left a lasting impact on my work, my marriage and me as a person. I restarted the Sheffield group in 2012 and I really value the opportunties it has given me and others to give or receive support.

 

Sarah

My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2010, aged 37, during treatment for infertility. After successfully conceiving after a laparoscopy, I found that my endometriosis worsened when I finished breastfeeding resulting in a hysterectomy and bowel resection at 40. I joined the support group after my operation and found it really helpful so when Meg advertised for more people to help out, I really wanted to help other people with endo.

About the support group:

We welcome sufferers and those close to them. We have guest speakers and more informal meetings to provide information. The support and understanding that comes from just being around other women with endometriosis is amazingly valuable. We hope to create a confidential, caring environment. Our private Facebook group is really active and can be a great place to find some information and support at any time of the day or night. We also do profile raising and fund raising work when we can. We look forward to meeting you in person or on Facebook! 1496585879313_twitter.jpg @EndoShef

 

General Session Information:

Our evening meetings are on the 3rd Tuesday of the month. They are held in the Community Room, Morrison's Supermarket, 699 Penistone Rd, Hillsborough S6 2GY Come into the store by either entrance and turn right - staying between the checkouts and the outside wall. Go past all the checkouts and there is a corridor on the right hand side which leads to the community room. The staff will be able to help if you get lost, just ask someone, they're really helpful in our experience. There is also lots of free parking right outside.
The group leaders arrive around 7pm for an evening meeting and the meeting starts properly at 7.30pm, finishing by 9pm. Hot drinks are available.
Our informal socials happen in various places so please check the individual meetings details for these.
