DISORDER TAKES ITS TOLL
Revealing how bad it was to live with endometriosis, she admitted: “The pain at times is unbearable.” She confessed how the disorder took its toll on her emotionally and psychologically.
The star shared how she was going in for her third surgery for the disorder on Tuesday, August 18, 2020. She revealed how she’d found a one of a kind specialist in Atlanta.
SPEAKING UP ABOUT THE CONDITION
In the coming weeks, she promised to share a vlog on her experience. She then opened up the post for other women who suffered from the disorder to speak up in order to inspire one another.
Chrisley included a photo of herself posing in her car with an envelope. According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, the disorder occurs “when tissue similar to the tissue that lines the inside of the uterus, known as the endometrium, grows outside of the uterus.”
WHAT IS ENDOMETRIOSIS
Johns Hopkins Medicine also revealed how around two to ten percent of women in America, between ages 25 and 40, suffered from the condition. Some other celebrities who’ve struggled with the disorder include Julianne Hough, Lena Dunham, and Padma Lakshmi.
BEING A CHILD STAR
Chrisley grew on in the public eye starring in her family’s reality show, “Chrisley Knows Best.” Before the 8th season of the show aired this year, she opened up about the lack of glamour in growing up as a child star.
PRESSURES OF THE LIMELIGHT
She confessed to “People” magazine how she felt pressured to be perfect. The star also felt pressure knowing young girls looked up to her and followed her on social media for that reason.
LIVING FOR HERSELF
Chrisley also admitted to putting pressure on herself, in the past, to live a perfect life and avoid disappointing people. However, she’d finally decided to live her own life and not fixate on people’s opinions.
