Actress and celebrity Daisy Ridley (you may know her from her role in Star Wars!) recently opened up about her experience with Endometriosis and PCOS (Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome). After visits to multiple specialists and navigating multiple diagnoses, Daisy is finally feeling like she is on a path toward healing.
This month is Chronic Pain Awareness Month, something Daisy has unfortunately had to deal with for years. We all know how frustrating it can be to go for years in pain without a complete understanding of what is going on in our bodies. The whole Mighty Well community sends strengths to Daisy as she navigates her treatment and continues on her journey to turn sickness into strength!
To any of you who are suffering with anything, go to a doctor; pay for a specialist; get your hormones tested, get allergy testing; keep on top of how your body is feeling and don’t worry about sounding like a hypochondriac. From your head to the tips of your toes we only have one body, let us all make sure ours our working in tip top condition, and take help if it’s needed.– Daisy Ridley (Teen Vouge)
