We got married and other exciting news

Well, I still can’t believe it! I’m officially Mrs Torr! It doesn’t feel like anything has changed apart from we feel more connected to each other, although neither of us can put our finger on this ‘more connected’ feeling. That is one of the reasons that I have not done a post in a while,…

My fertility journey – May 2016

Well, we had our second fertility appointment on the 22nd of March and our third fertility appointment on the 17th of May. Sorry it took me so long to update you all. In our last appointment we found out that we are┬ánow been referred to St Mary’s Hospital in Manchester for IVF (this photo of…

The new regime

The new lower dose painkiller with added tranexamic acid regime! Let’s see how this goes. After working with multiple over the counter and prescription medications as well as morphine (when I have the pleasure of visiting the SAU and A&E departments), I was hesitant to give the lowly prescription cocodamol a go but it has…

To the other half of me

To the other half of me, I want to thank you for being there for me, every step of the way with me. You have been as strong as a diamond, an absolute rock in a sea of uncertainties. I know you tell me not to be sorry, that endometriosis is not my fault and…

Day one

Day one is always the worst. As I type this I am sat here in tears, on quite a bit of pain relief and cuddling a hot water bottle like there is no tomorrow. I barely slept last night knowing that my period was coming. I felt moderate cramps, twinges and pressure from about 5:00pm…

Aren’t weddings expensive?!

So me and the other half, after numerous horrible events within days of each other at the beginning of this year, decided to get married in June. On the 4th of January I was admitted to hospital, put on a drip and wasn’t allowed food or water for 36 hours (hello endo, disguised as appendicitis)….

I now know – Endometriosis poem

I now know which weapons work and which shields give the best defence. I now know which armour is light enough to not drag me down, yet still strong enough to protect me from the onslaughts. I now know which battles are worth the fight, and which ones are better fought another day. I now…

‘What exactly is wrong with you?’

It is hard to answer the question ‘what exactly is wrong with you?’ for people who have no idea what endometriosis is and what pain it causes. It also varies from woman to woman, so one woman with stage IV may only have painful periods and another woman with stage I will have the most…

Endometriosis awareness logo

I made this logo today and I thought I would share it with you all. Feel free to use this anywhere and everywhere. You can use it on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr…anywhere you would like to spread awareness. I hope you like this simple logo and get some use from it. – Kelly x

What’s in my bag?

I thought this would be a cool thing to do seeing as though I take my bag everywhere, and so I need to be fully prepared. At the moment, I primarily use a pastel mint River Island bag that my fiance bought for me along with the matching purse. I have pictured it in the…

Little endo helpers

I am a huge animal lover and my pets actually keep me sane. I don’t know what I would do without these cuties especially on the really bad days. I am owned by 3 dogs and 5 cats. I will tell you a bit about each of them here. Keeper + DOB: 1st March 2012…

My fertility journey – March 2016

After finding out that the combined pill can cause infertility I decided to stop taking it in 2013 when I was 22. Me and my partner had the mentality that whatever happens, happens for a reason. It wasn’t until I suffered through an early miscarriage in November 2013 that we realised how much we wanted…
