Endo Bunny – Lauren

I started this blog to jot down my experiences of life with chronic illness – the good, the bad and the ugly.  I hope that what I write on Endo Bunny can provide support and information for anyone in a similar situation, even just slightly.  I aim to raise awareness and provide an honest account of what it’s like living with long-term health conditions.

I was diagnosed with Endometriosis and Interstitial Cystitis in 2016, after being poorly with symptoms since I was a child and my got my first period.  Since then, I’ve undergone multiple operations and treatments to try and ease my troublesome symptoms and subsequently been diagnosed with M.E. and Adenomyosis.

In my day job, I work part-time as a Musculoskeletal and Orthopaedic Physiotherapist for the NHS and part-time as part of the Clinical Governance Team at the hospital I work in.  I am also an associate lecturer at a local university.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, family and friends, shopping and looking after my house rabbits.  I also raise awareness through being a part of various charity campaigns, sharing my story and writing for online magazines.
