Hey guys! I’m April Christina and I am a health, wellness, and beauty blogger. After receiving my Bachelors of Science in Clinical Laboratory Science with a focus in psychology. I was sure that my next step would be to obtain my masters and teach full time. So naturally my journey into starting this blog should have stemmed from that, but it wasn’t.
After my diagnosis, my first two years of living with endometriosis was rough. I did not deal with my chronic autoimmune condition well. I was depressed, I secluded myself from others and was in constant state of denial because family and friends didn’t understand me. After a while isolation and depression gets tiring. I no longer wanted to be a victim of my condition. I decided that I would turn my pain into purpose by creating endoNme in 2015. After having two surgeries and one aspiration, I learned how to love April again. I learned to love the April who lived with endometriosis and not be the April who was a victim of endometriosis. I love the woman that I am becoming and pray that my experiences will captivate and inspire others, who live with chronic illnesses and diseases, that there is more to life than your condition.
With that, I was prompted to start iamaprilchristina.com because I’m not just a woman with endometriosis. I am in love with health and wellness and sharing any information I gain with all of you is so important to me. Obtaining a healthier lifestyle is key to a happier life. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
