Hi! I’m new! I have PCOS, asthma, endometriosis, POTS, IBS, and a mix of mental health issues. I joined because I feel like those that are “healthy” don’t always understand the layers of care and protection go into my every day and it’s exhausting. Sometimes it’s a struggle balancing every condition, especially when my mental health makes it hard to care for my physical health. I just want to build a supportive community that understands that I’m not making excuses, I just want someone to understand and celebrate those achievements that are overlooked as basic.

Endometriosis

Asthma

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)

Polycystic Ovary (PCOS)

    I totally agree! I have the same conditions except my asthma is exercise enduced and I do not have POTS. I get that it’s a lot to handle and it’s draining, but we need to realize that health influencers don’t show the days or moments where mental health gets them down, and it’s normal but we need to get back up

    Hello! Welcome to community. I understand how difficult it is to manage multiple conditions and mental health. Even things like remembering taking all my meds is challenging. We need to celebrate things like remembering to do dishes and clean more.

    Welcome. I can relate. I find it difficult to get those without chronic health conditions to understand what I’m going through.
