Thank you all for participating, reading, sharing, educating, learning, and helping to raise awareness during Endometriosis Awareness Month.  I think it has been a huge success.  We have reached a lot of people, gained followers, made new contacts, discovered new blogs, and met some friends along the way.

❤ Wishing you all a pain free day ❤
