About Ellie Angel…
Ellie is the delightful bubbly voice you’ll hear on B105 afternoons from 12-3 weekdays.
She lives with endo.
Endometriosis is an insidious disease in which the tissue that is similar to the lining of the womb grows outside it in other parts of the body. Symptoms include pelvic pain that can be so debilitating, your life is put on hold. Whilst endo mostly affects the reproductive organs it is frequently found in the bowel and bladder, even found in muscle, joints, the lungs, even the heart and brain.
My Endo journey began when I first got my period. Being in pain was just a given, after all that is what I got taught at school, that time of the month would be painful and ‘normal’. But it wasn’t. Pain isn’t normal.
After about 12 years of doctor visits, scans and sometimes ending up in hospital, I was final given an answer after having surgery. I have Stage 4 Endometriosis that was causing me so much hell. It attacked my bowel, uterus and even my poor little appendix. It has caused me years of physical and mental pain and has contributed to my infertility. But I am not letting this illness stop me.
I am a proud vocal ambassador and podcast host for Endometriosis Australia who help raise awareness, provide education and to raise funds for research.
