For anyone who suffers from endometriosis, you know how cripplingly painful it can be. Daisy Ridley understands your agony, as well. In an Instagram post, the Star Wars actress shared how she first struggled to be diagnosed correctly, only to eventually find out she has polycystic ovaries, which caused the endometriosis. Daisy went on to describe her routine to combat the skin problems that can accompany the disorder (no dairy, less sugar) and how her symptoms have improved.
Her inspiring message wasn't just about endometriosis; she also encouraged people to seek out specialists and to listen to their bodies — even if it means feeling like a hypochondriac. You're not wrong to want to fix something your body is telling you to fix. As she says, and we agree, you only have one body. Take care of it.
