  • Diary of a Hysterectomy – The Hospital

    Day 0. “Eviction Day” I’m a wreck. No other way to put it. The enormity of what’s happened over the past 18 months (marriage separation and uprooting my life, illness, the death of my aunt, etc), and now this has proven to be too much to handle today. I’m tired and anxious and can’t stop […]

  • Essure update. AKA “Now I need a hysterectomy to fix this shit!”

    I figured it was about time to update the situation with my Essure implants now that they’ve been in for a few months. Nothing has improved and as you can see from the title of this post, I am having a hysterectomy to have the things removed. Why do I need such a serious surgery […]

  • The Weekly Bindi – Week 13 – Of Bindis and Bald Spots

    I know that I have fallen behind with my Weekly Bindi.  Pictures have been taken, I just haven’t been able to get on to post them. See, I am going bald. Slowly. Painfully slowly. But steadily. It’s a slow-burn sort of agony in the same way that orgasms are a slow-burn sort of agony, only […]
