Moses supposes his toeses are roses … but does Moses have endometriosis? Who knowses! In this episode of Pill Pop, we’re talking all about diagnoses with improv comedian Cristina Spizzica. We also take a [literal] deep dive into the endo-affected reproductive system. Wait. What does that mean?

For many chronically ill people, the diagnostic process is long, finicky and frustrating. From denying your own pain, to not being believed by doctors, getting diagnosed properly is one of the hardest aspects of chronic illness … then, you have to live with it. Forever.

ps. Check out this endometriosis vs attractiveness study (yes, it’s real!):

Content warning: discussions of severe physical and mental illness, hospitals and medical trauma.

Sensory warning: some scenes (halfway through) contain loud crashing, splashing and droning sounds.
