    Recovery After Hysterectomy

    If you follow our blog, you may have noticed that all our recent content has been written by my hard-working husband. I have been MIA since November and I realized tonight that I just needed to make myself sit down and write. It isn’t that I don’t have things I’d love to share, I do. I have just had an emotionally draining few months and I was afraid that once I started writing all of that would pour out and honestly, who would want to read that? I am going to do my best to keep the emotions in check, but this post is going to just catch you up…

Recently it has gotten so bad that I couldn’t ignore it any longer. That has now changed thanks to Mute Nasal Dilators.

    PCOS and Aging

    I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) when I was around 19 old. I had gained about 80 pounds over a 2-year period, without substantial changes in my diet and despite regular exercise. I wasn’t menstruating, and I was struggling with fertility. The Dr. who diagnosed me advised that it would make getting pregnant more difficult but didn’t really give me any other information. After a few years of trying, and 5 miscarriages, I decided that having a biological child wasn’t in the cards for me and I stopped fertility treatments. That effectively stopped any treatment I was getting for my PCOS because I thought of it purely as…
