Calling this book a "complete" guide was a bit ambitious. I would consider it the author's "complete story" of living with the disease but not a complete guide for others. Literally anyone living with this disease could've written this book but I was hoping to gain some new information other than what I already know. Perhaps someone who is newly diagnosed would find this book helpful but everything it contains can be found and re-hashed on a good Google search.

I read this book to learn more about Endometriosis. I know several people who have the condition and I was curious about it from a personal perspective.

The author’s personal journey from diagnosis to research and advocacy is one that makes my head spin. There are a wealth of resources included as well.

My rating: 3.8

I have to give props to the author for writing this book. Not everyone would have the motivation or patience to complete this task, especially at a young age.

This book covers the author's story, her experiences of her battle with endometriosis. I, personally, do not know if I would've titled it "complete guide" though.

"Living with Endometriosis" covers Bowick's journey through diagnosis, multiple treatment plans, testings, and surgeries. It also discussed the other chronic illnes

Endometriosis sucks-- and the pain is only the beginning. The fact that the people we're supposed to be able to turn to for help don't have enough (or any) knowledge to do so has a seemingly endless number of consequences.

So we've adapted. We hide our pain, throw on a smile, and do the best we can to make it through another day. We spend ridiculous amounts of money on appointments, heating pads, oils, devices, and a whole variety of medications in desperate attempts at pain relief. We search fo
