Periods got me here. Today is National Period Day. Menstruation has been HELL ON EARTH FOR ME. I've never known a painless period. 21 surgeries later. Don't normalise period pain. It's taken me close to 20 years to get treated. No woman should go through this. Believe young girls when they say they're in pain. Don't brush them off. #NationalPeriodDay #Endometriosis #thoracicendometriosis #listentous #listentoourpain
Njambi has shared a touching post, talking about how endometriosis has ravaged her body, changing her life completely.
In the last four years, my life completely changed. Erratic sleep patterns became my new normal, groaning in pain till morning, trying to keep pain away as Endometriosis ravaged my body.
Mentally this hasn’t been easy but I take it a day at a time. I’m so grateful to God that I sleep so much now,’ she wrote.
It’s been two months since I came back. It’s not been easy for me at all but I always remind myself that I’m over the worst. I sit here and remember that I don’t need tubes to breathe anymore.
In the last 4 years, I’ve been in more hospital gowns than my clothes. If you’re one of those people who’s waiting for a special occasion, today is the day. This is the minute. Dress up, eat well, laugh and love.

Dress up, eat well, laugh and love. I will also start doing media interviews from mid- November so keep it here for more info. I've also been working on some projects since 2016 and once i have finished working on them, i will share with all of you. We are also planning for a Thanskgiving service end of November, details to be shared soon. I love fashion and I'm here for it. My scars don't define me. This pain doesn't define Jahmby Koikai. I'm happy to be back home in this environment. There were days, I'd have to be carried out of that gate. Lakini leo natembea mpaka kwa shop ya Iraki na Betty, hata juzi nilienda mpaka shopping center kwa Mama Ken kubuy mboga. My small wins😊 So enjoy your Friday.God is great. Oh and I've been eating like 5 @farmerschoiceke sausages everyday.😊❤. #thoracicendosurvivor #endowarrior #Endometriosis #RecoveryfromThoracicEndometriosis
