Endometriosis Advocate

 

 

March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. Each year millions of women and girls are impacted by this debilitating disease.  Over 176 million women are fighting a silent war that is upending their lives. It crosses ethnicity/race, age and socio-economic levels.  Endometriosis is hard to detect and often misdiagnosed.

Listen to our interview as she shares insights and strategies to effectively deal with Endometriosis. In the U.S. on average, it takes 10 years from symptom onset to receive an accurate diagnosis of endometriosis.

Some of the top symptoms include:

  1. Severe bleeding during your period (like hemorrhaging)
  2. Lower back and abdominal pain
  3. Vomiting, nausea, and headaches
  4. Prevents you from getting out of bed or doing daily activities

It hits women in the prime of their reproductive lives and impacts women and girls from age 12 to age 60. The symptoms mimic other conditions.

Michelle N. Johnson turned the pain she endured from this disease into a purpose to educate others.

As a Licensed Massage Therapist, and Wellness Educator for over 10 years, Michelle N. Johnson fights fiercely to educate, enlighten and empower individuals to become proactive participants in their health and wellness management.

She brings awareness every March to the plight of those with Endometriosis through her annual Fighting Fiercely © educational campaign and expo.  She is a member of the Endometriosis Association, and author of the Endometriosis resource guide: Fighting Fiercely: Unveiling the Unknown about Endometriosis in June of 2015. She states, “I give women a roadmap for what the next steps should be after diagnosis. I share in-depth research on treatment options and make recommendations for specialists.”

Refresh Your Spirit: How to Bounce Back from a Life Changing Diagnosis

Doretta Gadsden, RN, CPC

Author of Living Victoriously: Strategies to Empower Women with a Chronic Diagnosis

Many of us have the testimony of the woman with the issue of blood in the bible (Luke 8:43-44). She pressed her way through a horrific crowd to receive healing by touching the hem of Jesus’ garment.  On the other hand, others must identify with Paul, the Apostle. He dealt with a condition God would not remove. Instead, God’s grace and power strengthened Paul in spite of his condition (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Likewise, Doretta Gadsden is a woman of God who overcame incest, drug addiction and a diagnosis of AIDS (Auto Immune Deficiency Syndrome) to be a shining light to others. She shares her strategies to live a vibrant life with the AIDS virus.Ms. Gadsden discusses her journey of becoming a Registered Nurse, author,speaker and life coach.  Doretta’s strategies include the following:

·                 Prayer and meditation - Learn to sit still and hear from God

·                 Take Action - Once God directs you take the steps given

·                 Support group – Surround yourself with positive people who speak life over you

·                 Stretch yourself – Educate yourself on the best doctors and medicines available for your condition

Ms. Gadsden provides more tips in her book, Living Victoriously: Strategies to Empower Women with a Chronic Diagnosis. She states,“The main message is you are bigger than any diagnosis or circumstance that isin your life at this moment.”  The book is in the Amazon Store at http://bit.ly/LivingVictoriously.
