Started to put this question on the Feedback page but thought I would create a post instead. I’ll start:
- I waited so long to seek help.
- Fibroids caused me to be anemic, weak, and sick.
- I felt trapped at home.
- Sleeping for more than a couple of hours was impossible.
- I had to rearrange my life to accommodate them.
- The blood and clots and cramps…Oh, my.
- Too many women have limited treatment options.
- Scientists still don’t know what causes fibroids.
- EVERYTHING from the “Mad” category.
- Thinking about how I rearranged my life still makes me cry.
- As I sit here in front of my screen typing this, many women sit in front of theirs searching for answers.
- Discovering concretely that I’m not alone. (Big thank you to all!)
- Realizing that women (me included!) are indeed incredibly strong.
- Putting my bullheadedness on hold long enough to get help.
- My doctors listen to me and value my opinion. (They just probably think I’m crazy.)
- I am more spiritual than I originally thought.
- There is a use for my weird sense of humor.
I’m sure I’ll add to the list as I reflect more on my “fibroid years”.
Okay. Your turn. One thing or 100 things. Let’s hear it.
