Bindi Irwin is opening up about her private medical journey.

Steve Irwin's daughter recently penned a candid letter on Instagram regarding the health problems—including an endometriosis diagnosis—she's experienced for over a decade, but hasn't publicly detailed until now.

"For 10yrs I've struggled with insurmountable fatigue, pain & nausea," the 24-year-old captioned her March 7 post. "Trying to remain a positive person & hide the pain has been a very long road."

"Going in for surgery was scary but I knew I couldn't live like I was," Bindi said. "Every part of my life was getting torn apart because of the pain."
