Welcome to my blog!
If your partner suffers from endometriosis, you are going to learn about this insidious condition and understand how best you can support her.
If she suffers from fibromyalgia, you are in the right place to figure out how to help with her widespread pain, chronic fatigue, and fibro-fog.
If you feel stuck and don’t know which way to turn, this part of the blog gives you tips on how to cope, and how to support your partner.
Why this blog exist?
Before you dive into the content of this blog, let’s take a look at what am I blogging about and why?
I love blogging and I know that some of my readers are interested in starting their own blog too. But before I get to that part, I have to tell you what made me start my blogging journey…
I noticed a gap in the endo-sphere, meaning, the impact of endometriosis on male partners of women with this insidious condition isn’t spoken of. It also applies to fibromyalgia. We (men) aren’t thought of by society, doctors, and sometimes even family members.
The focus is always placed on the suffering women, but their partners are marginalized, not thought of. We don’t express our feelings as easily as women do, and in turn, both parties suffer.
Thanks to my wife, those who are on the receiving side, also gain a lot of valuable information about endometriosis, fibromyalgia from the perspective of the sufferer, however, the main focus of my blog aims to demonstrate the daily struggles of those who support them, caring male partners.
I gain inspiration from my own and other people’s experiences, taking an insight into many aspects of life with chronic illness.
The purpose of this blog is to raise awareness about the unspoken challenges of caregivers, who are often left unnoticed, and to give you tools to deal with them better.
No one ever asks “how are YOU today” because the majority of caregivers keep their feelings bottled up for themselves in order not to “hurt” their chronically ill partner. That paints the misleading picture of caregivers being okay…
There are millions of blogs addressing the needs of the chronically ill, but very few tackle the challenges of the people who support them.
I have over a hundred articles, but you will also find here posts written by readers like yourself. All of their stories are important to me and every single story shapes the urgency of my work.
Let’s dive into it further!
My blog contains hundreds of blog posts and longer articles. The majority of them are focused on the perspective of men behind chronically ill women, but you will also find articles written by my wife from the sufferer’s point of view.
We tackle subjects such as endometriosis, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, chronic pain, their mental health impacts such as general anxiety, panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression.
Knowing that chronic conditions put a financial strain on both of you, I also teach people how to start a blogging business because having money struggles when one of you is ill is unacceptable!
Besides, I am very passionate about blogging. I love every aspect of it, and couldn’t imagine not making it my full-time job.
