Meet the Support Group Leader(s)

Radka

My Story:

I was diagnosed with endometriosis in August 2013, aged 36. I understand how living with this disease impacts one’s life physically, emotionally and socially as, despite the late diagnosis, I have been struggling with symptoms since the age of 16.

I attended the York group a few times before deciding to co-lead so this group could continue to offer support to local women with endometriosis.

About the support group:

Our support meetings are quite informal. We offer a safe and non judgemental place to share experiences, ask questions or simply just listen at first.

Our group is quite small but in our unique way we are all experts as we face daily challenges of living with endometriosis. Talking is good and talking to someone who understands is even better! There is no such thing as a bad question - if endometriosis has an impact on your education/work, fertility, mental health or social life (to name just a few) then we are here to discuss them.

Occasionally we invite guest speakers to provide more detailed information on various aspects of living with endometriosis. Check out our support group meetings details for more information. 

We meet every other but the use of social media helps us to be there for each other more often - you can like our facebook page "York Endometriosis UK support group" or join our closed group "York EUK Support Group" for the latest updates and shared information. If you would like to be added to our mailing list and receive regular updates from Endometriosis UK and the York support group, drop us an email at yorkgroup@endometriosis-uk.org

General Session Information:

Our meetings are held every other month between 6.30 - 8.30 pm. Our venue is changing from September to a Community Room in ASDA, Monks Cross, York. Further details will be shared here soon.
