When I found out that I had fibroids in 2007 I had no idea what they were or what to expect. The nurse said it to me like it was common knowledge that I had tumors taking over my uterus. No ma’am I didn’t know.
I would love to say that I set out to learn as much as I could about fibroids from that day forward, but that wasn’t true. I spent several years in denial and just thought they’d go away on their own.
Well I was wrong. A new boyfriend and the prospect of actually having kids prompted my 2012 myomectamy. The day I got home from the hospital I started my real search for information about fibroids.
Every doctor I saw said they’d never seen fibroids my size – in someone my size, and because they have the tendency to come back, I made sure I became knowledgeable about fibroids and fast.
Alas there were only a few blogs dealing with fibroids naturally and/or weren’t too too out there. (read: crunchy) But there were a few that were a God send. (www.garlicandlemonsllc.com) & Endometriosis focused –> (www.hoghugs.com)
Since then I’ve felt passionate about sharing the info that I’ve found and my story. I never thought a blog would be my thing – you’ll find me any day of the week on IG – but I’d like to take what I’ve learned to more people.
I love your feedback and love to hear your stories and experiences. It only helps to give true color to the issue of fibroids.
