She wrote:

I’ve been depressed since 2016. Suffered anxiety and crazy panic attacks. I’ve been seeing a great therapist for this and I’m forever grateful. Kindly see a therapist and know there’s a community of endo-warriors who are willing to offer support. Also, know that it is normal because of what we are going through. You will be ok.
I appreciate Wendy Bingham who’s been a great support system. She suffered from this disease for 30 years and was treated at the Center for Endometriosis Care. She’s now a great endo activist raising awareness on endo and thoracic endo. I also appreciate my girl @lifeabove_endo I blew up her DMs in 2016 waiting and hoping for a response. God used this lady to save my life. She told me about the @centerforendocare and that’s how I got here.
