In December of 2010, I was diagnosed with Pelvic Congestion Syndrome. In August of 2012 I had a Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy, and at my 6-week post op check up my doctor said it would be 6 months before we could really say what the procedure did – or didn’t do- for me. That’s when These Next 6 Months was born.
It started out as a way for me to keep track of my progress, learn more about my condition and share my journey with others. When we reached the six-month marker and realized this condition wasn’t going away, These Next 6 Months turned into more than just a place to track my progress. It became a part of me.
These Next 6 Months is my “safe place” the place where any and everything goes, where my thoughts and feelings don’t need to be censored. It’s a place for me to advocate for myself and others in the Chronic Pain/Illness community who need a voice. These Next 6 Months is a place to vent, to reflect, to tell stories, to share information and to grow.
I’d love to take you all along with me. My hope is that while we share our stories with each other, we will learn a thing or two about ourselves as well. Take some time to click around, read some posts, leave a few comments; let’s chat!
