We meet Eloise on a very important day, She’s waiting for something big. We jump into her childhood diaries exploring what’s brought her to this moment.
Eloise was a happy child and a promising ballerina with no doubt she was going to grow up to be a star. Then at nine years old, her periods start and completely derail her life. She’s thrown face-first into a war against gaslighting doctors. They refuse to listen or believe her but she’s determined she will keep getting louder until someone hears. She talks about all things menstruation and menopause with brutal honesty.
A heartbreaking and hilarious tale that anyone with endometriosis or another condition that has led to medical gaslighting will instantly recognise.
