Been blogging here since May 2006. There is something I’m noticing and it is my responsibility to bring it to the attention of all.
The sum total of YOUR existence (mind/body/spirit) will carry you to the point of your medical decision. Just because you wouldn’t choose a particular fibroid treatment option, please don’t pretend it doesn’t exist or say words that would take it off the table for another woman. If you want someone to walk in your shoes, you have to be willing to walk in the shoes of others.
This fibroid issue is so much bigger than the choices you would make. You can relate to any other woman on this site (regardless of the topic) because we are all dealing with uterine fibroid tumors. I do it EVERY SINGLE day. I do not allow the choices I made (and continue to make) stop me from talking to women who have chosen differently. Sometimes, this just amounts to me telling them they aren’t alone. I don’t understand why many of the women who comment here cannot do the same. We have to unify globally and support each other. Until we can come together, don’t expect others who aren’t directly connected to this medical condition to give a damn. That, my happy, dysfunctional fibroid family, is the real issue.
I’m not doing this to please any one woman. I am committed to this blog and my other fibroid-related projects to bring attention to the problem. Don’t take it personally if I step on a few toes along the way.
They really, really do.
Once again, I ask that you go into the Forum or wander around the site and find other posts where you can add comments. Thanks!
