Jenneh Rishe - endometriosis warrior, chronic illness advocate, Registered Nurse, and founder of women’s health non-profit The Endometriosis Coalition! Recently, Jenneh’s advocacy work has been featured on Good Morning America and in the New York Times, discussing subjects such as medical gaslighting and medical misdiagnosis. Her therapeutic guided journal, Part of You, Not All of You, is also currently the #1 New Release in Endometriosis! You can find out more about Jenneh and her journal here: https://www.jennehrishe.com/ This past May, Jenneh was featured as a main narrator in a documentary film, Below the Belt, executive produced by Hillary Rodham Clinton, Corinne Foxx, and Mae Whitham. The film aims to bring awareness to this invisible illness - from societal taboos and gender bias to misinformed doctors and profit-driven healthcare, the film reveals how millions of people with endometriosis are effectively silenced.

She thought it was normal and was told this was just something she had to live with. We chat about how the symptoms start to build as time goes on until the time that endo pain becomes daily. How the pain can vary from day to day and month to month. She often had cyst ruptures. We also talk about why do we second guess ourselves when we know the pain is real?
