While writing helps me sort through emotions and hardships, it didn't seem productive/fair to subject the cyber world to my woes, so I didn't write much at all.
The worst part is that when the pain first started I read an article in the NY Times about how difficult hernias are to diagnose in women so I asked every doctor about it but they all told me I was wrong and thought I was crazy. I can't even begin to tell you how frustrating and taxing this experience was for me.
Here is a link to the article about diagnosing hernias in women. All doctors should read this.
I am partly relieved to finally know what the problem is but terrified, of course, to face surgery and recovery.
With that said, I'm focusing my attention elsewhere. In the midst of all this madness, my husband and I bought our first home. It needs major updates so I have no shortage of projects lined up and things to distract me from the rest of my problems at hand.
The Amberican Dream.
Hope to see you there!
