January 7, 2013

I recently visited my doctor to talk about getting ready to plan for pregnancy, and I walked away from there scared shitless. I’m currently 36 years old and have quit a bit of weight to lose (i.e., over a 100 pounds, to be specific), but for the past six weeks I have been doing well […]

December 2, 2012

As this month’s first wave of menstrual cramps sneak upon me, my mind begins to wander about the first time that I started my period. I was ten years old and at my aunt’s house with my two female cousins. Although my mother had never talked about menstruation with me, my instincts told me that […]
