My husband and I began dating when I was 19 years old. Shortly after, I began getting really sick, not just feeling well, but full out excruciating pain. The type of pain where you can’t move or talk. The type of pain where all you can do is lay in bed and cry. This went on for several years. I had been misdiagnosed and discarded by many doctors before receiving a diagnosis of something I knew I had – Stage IV Endometriosis. All I wanted was to feel better and make the pain go away. I never really thought about trying to conceive and infertility. That was until we began trying and nothing happened. I had been to doctors and had invasive and painful testing done, and ultimately was told I wouldn’t be able to conceive. The idea of conceiving started to consume me. It was all I could think about. I was scared, anxious, depressed, and jealous. One day, I fell to my knees and decided I couldn’t live this way anymore. I changed my lifestyle – added things and took some away – but mostly I changed my attitude. I was happy again and decided if I was meant to get pregnant, I would. I created new goals for my life. Several months later, I conceived naturally. I knew I experienced all of this for a reason, and that was to help other women. I went back to school and became a Certified Life Coach. I fused that with my Masters in Holistic Health to become a life coach for women with reproductive disorders and infertility. My goal is to help other women not feel the despair I once did. I want to inspire and give hope.
