Let’s face the facts!
Supporting a chronically ill partner can be challenging, especially if you are a man who doesn’t suffer from it as you will never fully understand what she’s going through.
I know how difficult it can be to see your partner in pain, but I also know that with your help she can get through this.
Just like you, I was once a partner, a boyfriend, a fiancè. Today I’m a husband. April 2022 marked 10 years of our marriage. Chronic illnesses did NOT divide us, they brought us closer together!
While there is a ton of blogs and websites dedicated to women who suffer from endometriosis and fibromyalgia, there’s a lack of information about endometriosis and fibromyalgia for men.
Although endometriosis and fibromyalgia are both conditions that primarily affect women, men also need to be aware of them.
I’ve learned that firsthand trying to educate myself about both of my wife’s conditions. However, over time, my wife also developed chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS for short), making her life, and the impact on my life incredibly challenging.
Despite the fact that endometriosis and fibromyalgia predominantly affect women, these conditions can have a significant impact on men’s lives as well.
For example, endometriosis can cause pelvic pain and pain during sex, which can be a major source of stress for couples. Fibromyalgia can also cause fatigue and pain, which can make it difficult for men to be supportive when their partner is dealing with a flare-up.
In addition, chronic pain caused by endometriosis and fibromyalgia can both lead to depression and anxiety, which can put a strain on any relationship.
The bottom line is that men need endometriosis and fibromyalgia education too. We need to be aware of these conditions so that we can be supportive partners and allies to the women in our lives who suffer from them.
This is why I created Worry Head!
If you’re a man looking for endometriosis or fibromyalgia information, I hope you’ll find my site helpful.
Why do women visit WH?
My primary focus is placed on endometriosis and fibromyalgia for men, however, a staggering 86% of our readers are young women of reproductive age, between 18 and 44 years old.
They all suffer from endometriosis, and 31% of them also suffer from fibromyalgia. My wife is the victim of both and immensely contributes to WH. Her perspective as the sufferer and her feminine touch is indispensable!
Women are in need of their partner’s support, but men often struggle to cope. They seek guidance from someone who understands a man’s mindset.
You’re in this together!
Endometriosis is a whole-bodied condition. It doesn’t only cause chronic pelvic pain, there are also plenty of debilitating symptoms. And when you develop fibromyalgia, on top of pelvic pain there is widespread pain, fibro fog, sleep problems, and other cognitive problems.
Her battle is yours too. If she’s diagnosed with fibromyalgia and endometriosis, you have to help her find ways to cope with her alternative therapies such as a light exercise routine, breathing, or applying CBD oil when she is in severe pain.
Treating fibromyalgia pain and endometriosis chronic pelvic pain can be a daunting task. You can end up feeling like you’re walking on eggshells, but it is important to remember that you are in this together.
There are many things you can do to support your partner, and I hope that by reading this blog post, you feel more equipped to do so.
What will you learn here?
Chronic illnesses like endometriosis and fibromyalgia can be incredibly isolating, but this blog provides a voice for those who are often forgotten. You’ll find information about chronic pain and fatigue, as well as the emotional, psychological, and mental impacts.
Medical conditions like fibromyalgia and endometriosis are two conditions that often impact relationships in a very unique way.
And since our women get more recognition in the world of autoimmune diseases and chronic disorders, men’s voices often get left out.
This site is here to provide information and support for men who are in relationships with women suffering from both conditions. General population and professional medical advice tend to marginalize male partners who in the eyes of society, “should just be able to deal with it.”
This is NOT the case!
So please, take a look around. You’ll find articles on how to support your partner, how to deal with chronic pain and fatigue yourself, as well as information on endometriosis and separate fibromyalgia information too.
I wrote 3 separate books targeting both conditions, but also a book about coping with the new normal with chronic illness.
Women with endometriosis begin to get more recognition, they get more and more updates about endometriosis news but their male partners never get anything. They often feel lost, unheard, and alone.
The same applies to fibromyalgia. Many women diagnosed with fibromyalgia get medical advice, but those who support them, don’t.
This is why I decided to write three separate books targeting both conditions, as well as one book with information for male partners on how to accept the new normal in relationships with women suffering from chronic illness.

“The best gift you can ever give to a chronically ill partner is your unconditional love and support” – Lucjan
You are her gift!
Because no amount of pills, hormones, or procedures will make her life easier… you can! Relationships are difficult to maintain, and when you add a chronic illness like fibromyalgia and endometriosis into the mix, it becomes a little bit wobbly, especially as it creates a lot of financial strain on couples.
She may not be able to do it without you! The thing is, we all need each other. That’s why relationships are so difficult when one person has a chronic illness and the other doesn’t.
There isn’t always enough time or energy for everything that needs doing in life (not even counting romantic partnerships). And if things get really bad, well, then finances can become an issue too… but I am going to teach you how to build online blogging biz, so you can see a brighter future.
