Hi there! Welcome to Endometriosis Aberdeen....
My motivation for starting a support group within Aberdeen is to provide others with the support I feel I lacked during my diagnosis. I first heard my GP mention the word 'endometriosis" in March 2018 and I was then later diagnosed with endometriosis in September 2018. During this time I had lots of questions, feeling and emotions and sadly found there were no local support groups in my area. I feel I would have benefitted from a support group at this time as it would have allowed me a safe space to talk openly about life with endometriosis, around people who could understand and relate to my experiences. My hope for is to create a safe, supportive and weloming enviroment for those effected by endometriosis.
I hope to hold meetings every 6 weeks and social meet ups once every 8 weeks. In the future I hope to have guest speakers at these meetings to disuccs topics relating to endometriosis. As we are a new group, I'm just getting to grips with it all! Please feel free to get in touch if you have any suggestions of things you would like us to discuss or speakers you would like to see at our support groups.
Welcome to all those with a suspected/confirmed diagnosis of endometriosis (partners/supports only welcome on specified dates).
A safe and welcoming environment for those who wish to seek support on life with endometriosis. Meetings are lead by Shaunee - an individual affected by endometriosis who has completed voluntary training with Endometriosis UK.
Date/time/location of each meeting (every 6 weeks) shall be posted on the Endometriosis UK website and also on the Endometriosis Aberdeen facebook page.
