For reasons I explain below I had total hysterectomy. (Don't worry men! You don't have to stop reading!) One thing I did not anticipate was the unsolicited advice I would receive. I know intentions were out of love and the need to comfort me. Coming from the community...

All the tests the doctors do used to make my head spin. I never kept track of my blood work and how the results fluctuated month to month. I figured "why bother, the doctor will just tell me when some thing is off". I have an amazing team of doctors so this is still pr...

As a massage therapist for 11 years I can share with you that making this decision can make the difference between having a good day or a bad day when you are suffering with pain.

I can't believe all the fun things I did this summer. I'm sad it has come to an end. This post is kind of an extension of my prior post "Bling Me Baby". I want to squash the stigma of using help to get where you want to go in life.
