It’s been a while since I have posted. After we found out that our embryo didn’t implant I was numb and depleted. We had spent so much of our energy invested in IVF and trying to get pregnant. It took this loss for me to truly realize how much of myself I have given up, and how much I haven’t actually been me for a long time. Instead, I was a shell of myself going through the motions of life without enjoying it. The constant blood draws, ultrasounds, injections, pill popping, and rollercoaster of emotions made me feel like there were not just two but three or four versions of Erica. My life revolves around my cycle, and the “plan.” I’m ready to take back my life and eventually find a balance on our journey. But right now, I need to deviate from the path.
I need to feel whole again and not so broken. Overall, I’m just tired of #infertility and all that comes along with the diagnosis. .

LECTURE À THÈME
Ce post est un peu particulier et très personnel. Cela fait quelques temps que je voulais poster sur ce sujet qui me tient à cœur.
Dans « Le bébé c’est pour quand ? », @laetitiamilotofficiel partage avec nous la découverte de sa maladie, l’endométriose, et son combat pour devenir maman. L’endométriose est une maladie intime qui reste encore fort tabou alors qu’1 femme sur 10 est touchée par la maladie. Tout au long du livre, elle nous explique sa vie quotidienne ainsi que celles d’autres femmes atteintes de cette maladie.
Cette lecture, je l’ai choisie car je suis moi-même atteinte d’endométriose. Je venais d’être diagnostiquée et je voulais en savoir plus sur cette maladie très intime. La lecture a été douloureuse mais très enrichissante. Je la recommande vraiment à toutes ces filles/femmes qui sont dans le même cas que moi et qui se questionnent. Je le conseille aussi aux personnes qui ne sont pas directement touchées par cette maladie car c’est en s’informant et en parlant qu’on brise le tabou.

Hi, new friends! I’m Sarah Panther. My husband, Jay, and I live in southern California with our cutest pookie face rescue pup, Lily. Here are the fast Panther facts:
1. I met Jay on an app (Bumble) when I was 32. To protect myself from yet another dating disappointment, I assumed he would be flaky, noncommittal, and try to text me mirror selfies, BUT HE WASN’T AND HE DIDN’T, AMEN HALELLUJAH. Life is full of plot twists.
2. I spent six years in bed, battling chronic illness, before I finally began to heal three years ago using the Dynamic Neural Retraining System (DNRS). It turns out healing the limbic system is a vital key to healing chronic illnesses like POTS, Lyme, ME, MCAS, MCS, Fibromyalgia and more. I could have never imagined this sort of healing was possible for me, and daily, I keep striving for deeper, fuller healing.
3. Awhile back, I was working on a PhD in spiritual formation and education, with plans to teach full time at the university, but God had other plans for me, and today, I’m a health coach. I love this work of helping people heal emotionally, spiritually, mentally, and physically.
4. I’m also a writer. One day I would like to write a book about suffering and hope, but in the meantime, while I continue to heal, I write here and send out monthly encouragement to my Email Friends. If you’d like to become an Email Friend, DM me your email and I’ll add you to my list!
5. Jay and I work with foster youth. Jay’s full-time gig is running a nonprofit mentorship program for foster youth, and we live in an apartment complex that’s home to a group of emancipated foster youth. I’ve hired one of these emancipated youth to help me run @hopeshopdesigns, where we handcraft jewelry to help you practice hope.
This space is where I share my life, along with hope and guidance for the journey of holistic healing. I’m so glad you’re here! Whether you’re new or you’ve been around awhile, I sure would like to get to know you better. So tell me:
Beach or Mountains?
Books or podcasts?
I’ll get us started below!
A little empathy can go a long way.🌻
Empathy, is the ability to understand that someone is enduring a difficult experience, even if your experience is different than theirs.
Too often people struggle to connect with one another because they aren't taking the time to step out of the bubble that is their own life.
🌻 Practicing empathy requires you to be active and present.
You can't half ass the process and expect a quality product.
Empathy helps every relationship grow whether its with,
🌻 a sibling
🌻 a partner
🌻 a lover
🌻 a friend
🌻 a parent
🌻 a supervisor
🌻 an employee
🌻 a colleague
🌻 a neighbor
🌻 a family member
If someone chooses to share pieces of their life with you, take a moment to truly recieve what they are giving you.
🌻 Think of what it may have meant to share with you and how your response could influence your relationship.
We all are fighting battles publicly and in private.
🌻 Water the garden that is your network with empathy, and watch it flourish.
Sending you all lots of love!
Happy hump day! Xoxo, Ova and Out 💙🌻

Oh hai, I’m a loaf of flax meal bread. .
These luscious blackberries make me want to talk about periods so scroll on if ya don’t want to read this next bit.
One of the reason why I switched to keto in the first place was because my reproductive endocrinologist said it would help with getting pregnant on the first IVF cycle (he was right.) He also said that my endometriosis symptoms would likely get better. He was right. About three months in I noticed I hadn’t taken any narcotics that month and I was elated. Overjoyed. I felt #blessed. 🙏🏻
A lot of doctors will just hand you your choice of hormonal BCP and say “them’s the breaks, sorry you have endo.” But it really made more sense to me to just say screw the pills and help reduce from the inside the inflammation that was causing me the pain in the first place. Is there a cure? Nope. I’ll have this forever. But if I have to keep on being a bleeder for a few more years, at least me and my uterus can try to get along. .

Meine Nerven sind blank😞
Die Schmerzen sind abends immer schlimmer, als am Tag. Ich habe das Gefühl, dass die Wirkung von Novalgin mittlerweile ebenfalls nachlässt und den Schmerz nicht mehr so betäubt, wie noch am Anfang😔 ich habe das Gefühl, dass ich schon nach 4-5 Stunden die nächste Dosis nehmen müsste. Die letzten Tage vor der Operation kommen mir unendlich vor, wo doch ansonsten die Zeit so schnell vorbeigeht...Urlaub, Sommer, Ferien, Weihnachten. Alles fliegt an einem vorbei, aber die Tage bis zur Operation, kommen mir seit Dezember wie eine Ewigkeit vor. Ich bin ungeduldig, geschafft, abgenervt, verzweifelt und sauer...
Aber vor allem am Ende meiner Kräfte😭 und egal wie schlimm die Schmerzen nach der Operation sind, die können nicht ewig schlimmer sein, als das, was man täglich seit Monaten ertragen muss...
Wenn diese Schmerzen kommen, würde man am liebsten sofort auf den Op-Tisch🙄

I’ve been on a very much needed womb therapy journey. This rising I had a deep conversation with my womb. I cried as she asked these questions. It made me feel like I had been treating her like a stepchild but what struck me the most was when she asked, “Why don’t you trust me?”, all I could respond with was, “I don’t know.” She then said, “You have to trust me to do the things you think I cant do. You can’t control everything alone. Trust me to give you what you need and desire.” It was eye opening. It was a deep and wonderful experience and I’ve vowed to trust in her with everything I have. We have an understanding now. We know that we’re in this together and I had to apologize to her for not trusting and loving her but also for the times I wanted to get rid of her - you didn’t deserve that energy and I wont subject you to that again. My queens, if you haven’t picked up Sacred Woman by @queenafua then I highly suggest that you do. It has been helping me tremendously in my healing and has had a big effect on how my life is now with Endometriosis. It’s a complete 360.
Night all! 👋🏻

While the migraine was wreaking havoc, I forgot my physio appointment was at 1pm & thought it was at 11am. Never managed to make it back to sleep this morning so I jumped in for a hot shower. My physiotherapist was sympathetic to my migraine making me ill & still feel gnarly at that point. Got 20mins of electrical impulses before he tried to crack me. He said he could tell I had a migraine cause my connective tissues were so tight. He did the sympathetic nervous system massage right quick & continued to crack me out. He told me there is no one coming in after me so I could lay there for a moment before getting up. I'm so happy I had physio today to get me back in place. Now to sleep as long as my body needs to.

Let’s talk healing. One of the largest components to healing from absolutely any ailment is... DETOXING ✨🙌 or eliminating toxins.
We are constantly surrounded by toxins in our everyday environment from the air we breathe, the food we eat, the clothes we wear & the products we use. Toxins create a state of stress in our bodies, causing imbalance; this is why we flare & essentially why we do not feel well.
Exposure to most toxins is inevitable & we really cannot avoid most them because our world is a very toxic place ...however you can start detoxing through the everyday products you use.
These 3 easy swaps can make a huge difference in someone with any sort of illness or ailment.
I recommend swapping your
•Deodorant💦—(most deodorants contain aluminum which is a heavy toxin for our bodies/immune system&your underarms easily absorb this) I use SHMIDT’s
•Toothpaste😁—(most contain fluoride which is A NEUROTOXIN PEOPLE! 🚫it can inflame & damage the brain & your teeth link directly to nerves) I use HELLO brand, whitens and cleans even better than a normal brand
•Daily facial/body lotion💋—most ingredients in lotions are unrecognizable & the list goes on. Seriously just use coconut oil or my fave JOBAJA oil, so many more health & skin benefits when using natural moisturizers.
These products are each affordable & have only CLEAN ingredients. Start detoxing today just by swapping everyday products. ‼️‼️‼️‼️
I have handpicked these organic herbs used for vaginal steaming and womb cleansing.
If you have never heard of this concept before, vaginal steaming is known to help with irregular periods, menstrual pain, fibroids, ovarian cysts, hemorrhoids, and vaginal tears/scar tissue after birth.
The tissues of the vagina are very porous, and the steam from the herbs contain volatile oils that are carried to the inside of the vagina where they are absorbed. This increases circulation, heals, and cleanses the reproductive system.
The herbs included are; lavender, mugwort, calendula, yarrow, rosemary, Motherwort, and rose petals. Each have their own unique properties.
There is enough for 4 steam sessions. Instructions will come included with the herbs.

2️⃣Tag 2 friends whom you think would benefit from these herbs and steaming.
Winner will be chosen this Friday 17th after 3:00 pm

"I’ve been living with #Endometriosis for over 25 years but I was officially diagnosed 3 years ago. I’ve lost a lot (time, body parts, loved ones, career opportunities, etc.) but I’m determined to be victorious and not allow it to destroy my joy." - Kris #EndoWarrior
You are resilient!

Doing it for Zeta Phi Beta alll week, shoot all 2020!!! It’s 105% week. Endometriosis is rearing it’s ugly head. I tried my best today 🤷🏾♀️. Was supposed to go for 368 but who has time and I didn’t bring my half weights. 370 will soon be mine! Road to 400.

I used to be held captive by my illnesses. True story. I have severe endometriosis that once seemed to affect every facet of my life. It was hard on my emotional and mental state, it affected my spirituality, it stopped me from doing things I loved because I was physically in so much pain, my relationship suffered, my studies became challenging, I could really go on and on about how it affected me. Chronic illnesses can do that to people. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Four years ago this January I had my second surgery for endometriosis. It was my second surgery within six months. I was so hopeful that this surgery would provide me with the relief I needed. It was a good step in the right direction. Having my endo physically excised was huge, it made a big difference yet it was only the beginning of my healing journey.
I didn’t realize how much internal healing I needed. I wish I could go back and give myself a big hug and assure myself that things would eventually get better. I’m so sad when I think about the pain I went through, and I am so proud of how far I’ve come and how I’ve learned to manage this condition.
I’m sad for all my #endosisters that are still in the thick of it. The ones still looking for a diagnosis, still in horrendous pain, still heartbroken over #infertility, still invalidated by others, still being seen as a “drug seeker” because how can she still be in pain? Seriously it breaks my heart to think about because I was once there and it nearly took everything from me.
The fact is, the medical community has FAILED when it comes to women’s health. The fact that 176 MILLION women suffer with endo and still don’t have answers is unacceptable. The fact that it takes on average 7-10 years to be diagnosed is unacceptable. The fact the women kill themselves because the endo pain is so awful is unacceptable. We need to do better.
I’m always willing to talk about my endo journey. The healing wasn’t simple, it wasn’t easy, it wasn’t linear, and it’s not over. I still have moments where endo shows up and wrecks my day. However, I’m in a much better place and for that I am grateful. I am SO glad I didn’t give up. 💛✌🏽💛
Veggies and eggs for breakfast! Did you know that eggs contain choline an essential nutrient for brain development during pregnancy. Choline has been shown to play an important role in prevention of neural tube defects. .

I had my initial consultation with an excision specialist on Monday with Dr. Dulemba at the Women’s Centre in Denton, TX. My consultation with him was exactly 1 year to the day since I’d had my #hysterectomy, and it has been a year of misery. I had a hysterectomy (& #ablation 😭) for #endo and #adenomyosis performed by an OBGYN who was NOT an excision specialist & didn’t have enough experience with endo or robotic surgery. Hard. Lesson. Learned. I found Dr. Dulemba via the Nancy’s Nook Facebook page (if you haven’t utilized that site, do it now). He is an experienced excision specialist with an additional 13 years experience in #roboticsurgery . He & his office staff were incredibly nice, knowledgeable, & so thorough. They spent 4 1/2 hours with me (3 with the doctor). This was the most validated I’ve felt in a long time, and not once was I offered antidepressants. I have an overwhelming amount of information to absorb, & a long hard road, but I finally feel like I’ve found a doctor who has the experience I need to handle the seriousness of my situation. He didn’t sugar coat anything, nor did he make false promises. He also presented to me as many options as he could & worked to educate me. I’m not ready to talk about exactly what my diagnosis is, or the steps I need to take, because I’m overwhelmed & still processing. I appreciate the support I’ve received & am thankful for those who are respecting the fact that I need some space right now. There are very few people I want to talk to right now, but the #endocommunity is a place I feel comfortable right now. If you have #endometriosis & you’re reading this post, the one thing I hope you take away from my experience is to do your research, educate yourself, & find an experienced #excisionspecialist because your health isn’t something to gamble on. #endostrong #endosisters #endowarrior #endometriosisawareness #endosucks #butyoudontlooksick #chronicillness #chronicpain #interstitialcystitis #adhesions #itsokaynottobeokay
A testosterona sintética, por exemplo, ocasiona o bloqueio da produção de espermatozoides e a interrupção da menstruação 🤔 .
Originalmente, ela é utilizada em doses adequadas e com indicações específicas para corrigir algumas doenças e deficiências hormonais 😉
Seu uso indevido pode levar à insuficiência hepática, ao câncer de fígado e, ainda, afetar a fertilidade. Isso acontece pois quando há uma taxa de testosterona muito acima do normal presente no organismo, ela inibe a produção de FSH, hormônio responsável pela maturação das células reprodutivas 😪
No caso dos homens, que possuem naturalmente mais testosterona, doses extras, mesmo que em pouca quantidade, podem debilitar as funções reprodutoras parcialmente, diminuindo as chances de ter filhos 😔

Chronic Illness & the Stages of Grief: Anger
This might be the stage that I was most excited to write about because it’s the most visible and people see it as negative, when it can be useful! Anger is a rational response to chronic illness! I am so angry that my career has been taken from me, my hobbies, my ability to take care of myself, and so many other things. I’m furious that people treat me and other people with visible and invisible disabilities like shit - and we should be angry! 😡
Anger is useful when it's in response to an injustice and I can remain calm and teach someone about my illness and disability rather than snapping at them. When I can channel my anger into something useful, like this post. There are also many times when anger isn’t useful. Like when my rage adds to my symptoms and raises my heart rate, flushes my face, and makes me sweat. Or when I take my anger out on someone else when they don’t deserve it. 😡
It's normal to be feel anger and it's important to handle it in a healthy way. I have had a hard time learning self-compassion. I’ve always been a perfectionist who is very hard on herself. Learning to think, would I say this to a friend in this situation, has helped me treat myself better. Learning to laugh when I drop something and joke about how my hands don’t work, rather than rage about it, has been a welcome change. It’s also important to talk about the things that make me angry and not let them stew. Even before illness, I was very bad at bottling things up until I exploded. I’ve learned to steel myself for things that will make me angry (like certain politics that take away my humanity), because I need to be calm in order to communicate effectively. Other times I just need to vent! It’s ok to let it all out, scream, cry, make jokes, be sarcastic, let out all the the things you wish you had said, with someone who listens and understands. 😡
Sometimes I just need to redirect and enjoy something great, like a hilarious TV show, a fun song, a yummy snack, warm bath, anything to relax and take time out.
I don't have the answers but I'm trying to learn. How do you manage anger with your #ChronicIllness ?
Yang herbal lebih menyehatkan dan sehat jangka panjang loh sizta. .
➡ Untuk membuktikan bahwa pembalut ber-Merk di pasaran mengandung bahan daur ulang (kertas) yaitu dgn cara ambil lapisan teratasnya dan bakar, jika tercium aroma seperti kertas dibakar maka pembalut yg anda pakai sekarang adalah pembalut dgn bahan daur ulang. Dan kenapa di pembalut biasa yg berbahan daur ulang tidak membuat tembus, karena di lapisan paling dasar itu terbuat dari plastik. .
🌸Sedangkan utk Moment Softly terbuat dari P.E Film (nonplastik) yg membuat Softly ini dlm keadaan stabil🌸 .
➡ Untuk membuktikan Softly terbuat dari herbal sedangkan pembalut biasa dari bahan daur ulang (cara kedua) adalah masukkan ke dlm gelas kaca yg sdh berisi air. Aduk hingga terjadi perubahan. Untuk pembalut biasa akan berubah menjadi seperti pulp (bubur kertas) sedangkan..
. 🌸Softly akan membentuk gel-gel yg membuktikan bahwa Softly ini aman untuk "mulut bawah" kita🌸
SO..masih berani mempertaruhkan kesehatan kita dgn bahan2 beracun yg membahayakan hingga merenggut nyawa kita. Yuuk mari kita lebih respect terhadap diri kita & orang2 kesayangan di sekitar kita.

There is no single broken part of you. I specialize in pelvic, uterine, sexual and emotional health, but I will never tell you that your headaches are unrelated to your pelvic pain, or that addressing your hormones is the only way to help with your libido.
We cannot carry forward in health believing that we can fix the body like a machine. This is why surgery for uterine disorders frequently fail or need repeating: unless the problem is purely mechanical, and we don’t fix the underlying connection, we will forever default to our weakest link.
How does your uterus fit in with the flow of the rest of your body? The connections are really endless, which is what I love about being a physician of Chinese medicine.
Consider changing your thought process for just a moment: if every physical, mental and emotional aspect of you could be located in the microcosm of every cell of your being, how differently would you treat all of you? 🖤
Awoken from a sleep I don't remember having. A familiar dull ache still radiates from my lower back around to my tummy, reminding me of "its" presence.
A deep, sharper, never escaping pain throbs my ovary; but only on the right this time!
It feels like there's a balloon inside of me that won't pop.
I'm tired and anxious and emotional and drained and helpless and frustrated, I can't think straight, can't sleep, don't want to eat but need to, to take painkillers that do nothing anyway.
I want to curl up in a ball & stay where I am, but it doesn't really matter if I'm
at work, at home, laying down, sitting, standing, the pain is inescapable, for now.
Knowing that no one can see it, diagnose it (easily)fix it, for good, there's little use in vocalising & they wonder if you're exaggerating.
Partners don't understand the excruciating pain searing through your body. They just want you to act the same without stopping to think or consider anything about how you feel and that their life shouldn't be "affected", "you've just got PMS", "just act normal", "stop being crazy". But support can't be given for something that isn't understood.
Therapy after therapy, searching for answers trying new things, anything, I'd sell my soul for relief.
Some work for a bit others don't at all. Drs forcefeed you hormones and steroids that make you fat but diet pills won't make you thin again.
Having to act "normal" when all you want to do is escape from the pain of a body that's betraying you, just makes you want to disappear to a place with no one else around.
This is a cycle that's unpredictable, painful, pointless. This is Endometriosis. #endometriosis #pain
We are a sisterhood. There are many days I struggle having the energy to get out of bed while running a business. Self-employnent chose me, I did not choose it. Due to my chronic illness, my employers were hard pressed holding my job when I was unable to be there. Its a common occurrence among us pelvic sufferers. Thank you all for giving me the ability to feel productive and be able to make a modest living. Sadly, we sometimes have to find alternate ways to survive than what we originally had planned. My heart goes out to those who are in the same dilemma. #chronicillness #endowarrior #endobellysisters #endowhat #endowarriors #endofound #endofemm #endometriosis #endopelvicpain #endostrong #endosisters #endobelly #endometriosisawareness #staystrong #endohealthhub #endosurvivor #endobellysucks

Pictured tonight is homemade Lentil Bolognese with Gluten-Free Rigatoni 🥰 A meal that is both satisfying and hormone healthy! Eating gluten-free free can be super beneficial for women with hormonal imbalances, as gluten can often cause high levels of inflammation in the body. This inflammation can worsen PMS symptoms, throw hormonal levels off course, and (in the worst case) affect blood vessel and organ function. (Disclaimer: I’m not a doctor! So if you’re feeling funky and are thinking of changing up your diet/have concerns, consult a professional!!!)
A personal gluten-free favourite of mine is corn pasta since it’s the most similar to wheat pasta! What’s your favourite gluten free alternative?!
My loves fast asleep!! 🧡🐶🐱🧡 keeping me distracted from another specialist appointment Friday!

I was sitting in one of my classrooms this morning when a TA said about another TA: "she's really calling in to work for cramps on the 6th day of her period..." (triggered 🤣) and continued to talk about a co-worker who actually calls in sick when she's sick. Imagine that! 🤯 The fact that people think this is wrong and that you should push through when you're not feeling well is SO toxic with a capital freaking T. You deserve sick days, personal days, mental health days, ALL the days. Take what you earn and more if you need it. #restisproductive #daysoff #workingwithendo #otwithendo #mentalhealthmatters #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness

I have serious endo/adeno belly right now. My homework is due tonight and I'm having trouble concentrating due to discomfort. I am also worried about my procedure tomorrow. I'm having the endometrial biopsy to follow-up on my D&C results from 2016 that showed benign endometrial hyperplasia. I've not had it checked since then so my surgeon's associate booked me to make sure all is well before pre-op.
The pill changes EVERYTHING
I was a bit late to the party for reading @sarahehill amazing, incredible, jaw dropping, very good book: The Pill Changes Everything. I think there could very well be a sequel titled “everything changes everything” because the main take away is that our body doesn’t discriminate when it comes to pharmaceuticals. We have receptors ALL over our bodies, so when we tinker with one hormone, even with the intention to impact a specific physiological process (ie. Estrogen & our ovaries) our body doesn’t discriminate & manipulate ONLY the hormone receptors in the ovaries, it impacts the receptors EVERYWHERE, hence the name of Sarah’s book. And this isn’t limited to the pill (but that’s a topic I’ll unpick another time 💁♀️) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So for now, lets get back to this gem of a book that every one should read if you’ve ever been on the pill, are on the pill, have a girlfriend on the pill, have a daughter thinking of going on the pill (you get the point 😏) Here are a few reasons why you HAVE to read it for yourself: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
✨ This is NOT a pill bashing book. The pill has done AMAZING (truly, amazing) things for women & the author agrees with this stance. The argument is not to bash the pill but rather create more informed consent for women taking it 🙏
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 👩🔬Sarah’s work is grounded in science & up until this point, science has largely left women out of a lot (and I mean A LOT) of studies due to the peskiness of our cycles. Sarah is a pioneer for big change in order to shift this 💃
🧡 There is no way around it but the pill literally changes everything. Like, it can influence who you marry (🤯) as well as do a doozy on your mental health & as Sarah describes it, make you feel like you’re living in black & white (for *some* women, not all) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If you’re on the pill & have questions feel free to DM me (I can talk about this stuff ALL day) & I want to reiterate that the pill has been AMAZING for women, I’m simply advocating more research & information available to us before signing up to it 🖤
Indahnya masa kehamilanmu nak, aku sayang kamu😇😘🚼 Bagi pasangan yang sudah menikah, anak adalah impian yang ditunggu tunggu, apalagi usia pernikahan sudah berjalan 3 tahun, 5 tahun, 10 tahun dan seterusnya, semakin usia pernikahan semakin lama maka semakin besar juga keinginan untuk memeliki momomongan, kesimpulannya keinginan itu berbanding lurus dengan usia pernikahan.
Lantas apa yang menyebabkan semakin tua usia pernikahan semakin besar keinginan mempunyai anak?
Tentu saja Usia kita dan pasangan kita, anda pasti sudah bisa membayangkan kalau kita mempunyai anak pertama di usia 40 tahun, lantas ketika anak usia 20 tahun kitanya sudah usia berapa?
Contoh diatas itupun masih lebih baik jika dibandingkan dengan, apabila ada orang di usia 40 pun belum mempunyai anak.
Perasaan apa kira2 yang akan dialami :
1. Putus asa.? bisa ia bisa tidak tergantung pada penerimaan individunya.
2. Sedih.? itu jelas.
3. Minder.? kadang kadang muncul ketika kita bertemu teman atau saudara yang pada sudah punya anak.
4. Malas mengikuti acara perkumpulan keluarga.
6. Dan lain sebagainya

Step 16 of Happy New Year;
I had a beautiful opportunity to share with my work crew our journey and I'm so overwhelmed and chuffed at the response and the support from it! Feeling the love is seriously an understatement!
Here is a box on my desk, for anyone to ask and tell me anything.
Proud to say, the DQ Alpha match thing we have, my crew heard about for the first time, what IVF is and what that damn pineapple means that people keep posting 😂😂 Ask away, ask me anything, I will be happy to reply!
Also, the best thing about my story telling, is males came to me with their story! Bloody amazing!!!! Bless them for opening up! You can do it guys!
More updates to come.. And I think I'm due for another Insta Cinema Session 😉😉
Physical therapy has been a huge help for my endo symptoms, but mental therapy has been just as important. I have an appointment with a therapist every week and it has helped immensely. Chronic illness is a lot to handle and is even harder when you add in family, work, finances, etc. .
I feel guilty a lot from missing work/grad school, but in therapy today we talked about reframing “should” thoughts and “if I just did...” to a more positive and less blaming “can I?” It’s so important to find healthy strategies for coping will illness
I personally think everyone should go to therapy, but it’s especially important for people with chronic illness 💛

Hard for me to post. Not in the sense that I’m embarrassed for others to SEE. But how hard it is for ME to look at. I rarely ever took progress pics or even full body shots. So did my best to show examples. FIRST 1st pic ➡️ 2010 in highschool I actually got UNDER weight. My body is pear shaped and its physically impossible for me to go below a size 8 jean. You can kind of see how bony my arms and neck look. I was also suffering from addiction and the party lifestyle. ➡️ SECOND 2 PIC: 2014-2016? I was out of college and working a remote camp job. I’d cleaned up my lifestyle. Eating right and exercising. Hit all kinds of PRs. I actually had a 4pack I was embarrassed to show in the photo. Thinking it ‘wasn’t good enough’. ➡️ THIRD 3 PIC: 2017 I wasn’t working out due to a tiring job and long commute. I was also going to school. I was by no means overweight. I could fit my smaller dresses! Felt good about my body. Very fatigued and did not know I had cancer at that time ➡️ FOURTH 4 pic: 2018 Had no idea why I felt so terrible and started gaining so much weight. Not as heavy as I am now. Attempting to go to the gym when I can. Think I got my diagnosis not long after this pic. 💭 ➡️ LAST 2 PHOTOS: me currently! Damn I have NEVER been this size in my life! Sure I was a chubby kid and pre-teen. Certain meds after surgery helped make me balloon up. Along with unhealthy choices. I know documenting ‘progress photos’ is not a part of the challenge. But I want this as a reminder that I will NEVER get back to this point. I love myself and I love my body. It’s been a long road of acceptance and learning to love me 💗 #TfnTeam #Lean16 #Progress #StartingPoint #CervicalCancer #Endometriosis #Fitness

You might have PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome)?...... PCOS is a "Frustrating" medical condition, which affects about 170 million women globally, almost one in 10! But unfortunately most women do not even know they have PCOS!
You can be diagnosed of PCOS if you have at least two of 3 criteria below:
1. Abnormal periods (heavy, prolonged periods, infrequent periods over 35 days apart, or irregular periods). 2. Excess male hormones patterns, (acnes, oily skin, excessive body hairs, body odor, baldness). 3. Polycystic ovary (page 3, right ovary). many small cysts seen on your enlarged ovary.
Ovary fails to ovulate regularly and produces more males hormones.
Other symptoms may include:
Infertility, miscarriage, chronic fatigue, weight gain, bloated abdomen, pelvic pain, mood swing, depression, sweating, difficulty sleeping, difficult to lose weight, anxiety, low sex drive, etc.....As you may know, some of these symptoms are the symptoms of endometriosis too! (Both are inflammatory). I have seen endo patients also suffering from coexisting PCOS.
If you have some of the above symptoms listed, pls seek an early help from your local Gyn. You may have undiagnosed PCOS ! Dr Kanayama

This post is right on the money for me right now - anyone else synced with me🙋♀️? #cyclesyncing #cyclesisters 😉
#Periods were a nightmare for me when I was younger: dehabilitating pain, heavy flow, headaches, mood swings, etc.You name it I dealt with it.😥
Needless to say I was happy at 15-16 to pop a pill & be done with it. I wish I could go back in time & show my younger self that it's not the only way & prevent the years of damage to my body.🤷♀️Instead I'm here to inform you.😊 .
My journey in holistic health & nutrition has been so empowering because I've learned that diet, lifestyle & medicine have a HUGE effect on your #hormones & your cycles. Today I'm going to share some of my knowledge with you.
#Holisticmethods that help with #pms & periods:
1) Diet: nobody's favorite, but yes diet affects hormones & pretty much EVERY other process in your body! Carbs, sugars & processed foods spike insulin levels which lowers levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). SHBG binds estrogen & testosterone in the blood so when SHBG is low your levels of both hormones increases. When the ratio of estrogen & progesterone is imbalanced, it leads to irritability, anxiety, insomnia, etc. Dairy also has a profound effect on your hormone levels by boosting estrogen levels further.
2) Hot water bottle - heat improves blood flow, opens blood vessels & dissipates the pain so a hot water bottle or heating pad is a must! Epsom salt baths are also great- you get the heat & the calming, muscle relaxing effects of magnesium.
3) #Magnesium: can help reduce inflammation & calm your nervous system, which can also regulate cortisol levels in your body. Higher doses (400 mg + bisglycinate) can significantly reduce #pms related symptoms such as headaches, bloating, dizziness & cravings. 👌🏿
4) Exercise: seems counterintuitive but aerobic exercise may just be your ticket to natural pain relief. The endorphins & increased blood flow help reduce #cramps & counteract the prostaglandins.
5) Herbs: add to food, supplement or make tea: dandelion, ginger, raspberry leaf (my fave for cramps), turmeric, burdock & maca are all great options.👌
Big mood today.

Too often I see videos of my #ChronicallyIll friends crying in the car after leaving a doctors appointment, frustrated, angry, upset, and hopeless because they were ignored and invalidated yet again. I love that they show the raw reality of what often happens when you have #ChronicIllness but I hate that we have all experienced being ignored and invalidated by doctors when we just want an explanation and some help managing symptoms.
We all grew up thinking that if something was wrong, we could go to the doctor, they would listen and provide treatment. This is not our reality. Healthy people sometimes can't imagine that this could be true and that adds to the disbelief and stigma that we face. I had no idea that it was possible to wake up sick one day and never get better. I had no idea that doctors would try to blame symptoms on my mental health, tell me that my labs were fine so I couldn't possibly be feeling fatigued, tell me that my pain couldn't be that bad and just to be concerned if it caused nausea and vomiting. I could go on and on.
It has taken years of explaining symptoms and seeing doctors to find one that actually listens - and that's only available to me because of my privilege as a middle-class, white woman with decent health insurance. 3+ years for hypothyroidism (that clearly showed up on labs), 10+ years for endometriosis, I could go on. Not everyone has the resources to continue searching for one. I acknowledge my privilege and how it shapes the way I experience these issues and I would love to learn from any friends from marginalized groups about how your identities shape your experience.
Patients that are more likely to be disbelieved and ignored are also more likely to not have access to other doctors for a second opinion or alternative treatments. Race, gender, social class, sexual orientation, other diagnoses, and many other factors (and their intersections) are at play here. It needs to stop.
Continued in comments:
Chronic Illness & the Stages of Grief. I've been thinking about this for a long time and I'm finally ready to talk about it! There's a lot to grieve when you become chronically ill. It's ok to show that too. This week, I'm going to post about one of the stages each day (pending any symptoms flares). .
For a long time I viewed acceptance as an end goal. I thought I could process my feelings in each stage and get to the sunny happy end. That's not the case with chronic illness. Just like our symptoms are always fluctuating and unpredictable, so are our feelings about our illness. .
Now I like to think of it like a wheel you would spin at a carnival. I could be sitting still with acceptance for a while and then something happens, the wheel spins, and boom I'm back at anger. Just like symptoms come and go, so do feelings. Recognizing the impermanence has helped me manage the rough patches. .
I'll talk more about it throughout the week! Turn on post notifications to follow 😁 Drop a comment ⬇️ to share your experiences with me and how you are managing this chronic illness beast. What are you grieving? What stage are you in? How do you move towards acceptance?
Feeling sooo THANKFUL🙏🏻👏🏻 — We were originally supposed to arrive in England today, this morning, to kick off the next part of our travel journey. But instead we had to throw away our nonrefundable flights in exchange for a myriad of doctor appointments. The last month or so has been filled with so much worry and unknown that ended in a minor surgery for myself last week......... .
So WHY am I thankful?! Because despite all that, my biopsies all came back BENIGN today!!! I have an endometriosis diagnosis for life and a few weeks of recovery (writing one last blog about that) but that is so much better than what the other possibility could have been. I am thankful for my health. I am thankful for my boyfriend who was by my side the entire time without complaining ONCE. I am thankful for my family for being there for me. I am thankful I am allowed to get back to traveling in just 3 weeks from now. I am thankful for you guys for having patience during this last month while I didn’t have exciting things to post about. I am thankful for LIFE. Despite all the frustrations and fears and changes, there is still, and always, so much to be thankful for. Remember that. .
And with that, Dave and I can now get back to planning our next venture. We have sooo much happening in the next few weeks, we just have to do it much quicker than originally planned. Like super speed. So stay tuned. LOVE YOU ALL!! #thankful 🙏🏻🖤
"She's gonna forever say "I got this" even with tears in her eyes."
•I see you hugging your pregnant coworker and saying congratulations with tears in your eyes.
•I see you planning a night out with friends, wondering how you’re going to sneak away at 8:00 on the dot to do your shot. (nope, not that kind of shot! 🥃🙄)
•I see you sobbing at that first response commercial (or really any commercial for that matter, because hormones and heartbreak, amiright?!).
•I see you crying yourself to sleep (or my personal favorite- a good shower cry in the morning).
•I see you wearing those giant sweaters to hide your stims/egg retrieval/meds bloat trying desperately to avoid people asking you if you’re pregnant (which they do anyway because they suck).
•I see you planning that trip, panicking about how you’re going to conceal your arsenal of needles as you go through security.
•I see you hiding your sharps container in your closet before your family comes over.
•I see you carefully pushing your gonal f to the very back of the meat drawer in your fridge so your friend doesn’t stumble upon it while grabbing a beer.
•I see you wearing long sleeves at work to hide the bruising from your incessant blood draws.
•I see you crying in the bathroom after seeing that f-ing BFN again (even though you really thought that precious FMU would do the trick).
•I see you peeling out of the parking lot at work to have a good midday cry on your lunch break.
•I see you smiling and pretending you’re fine but I know that you can’t stop thinking about it, it’s consuming you.
I know that sometimes these things make you feel embarrassed, mad, sad, jealous and broken. You’re allowed to feel all of those things- I don’t know why we feel ashamed of them. I mean come on, you’ve been to hell and back- some of you amazing women in this community are on your 5th, 6th, 7th trip to hell, and damnit you’re still picking yourself up, living your life, and doing the best you can every single day. If that doesn’t make you a badass, I don’t know what does❤️ @somedaybaby_ttc

Consistency is probably the most overused terms on here - because well duh we need to be consistent.
But what does that really mean?
Consistency isn’t just working out every week. Its working out with purpose (progressing specific movements) weekly. Its recovering well (I personally prioritize 8-9 hours of sleep per night) daily. Its eating enough to allow your muscles to replenish and to keep your metabolism fired up, daily.
These pictures are exactly 1 year apart. This is me getting a better handle on a plant based diet (finding what foods work, then increasing that amount of food- slowly). Its upping my sleep from 7-8hrs/night to 8-9hrs. Its sticking to the same basic exercises and making sure I increase strength with them. Its aiming to drink 0.75-1 gallon of water per day. Its sleeping extraaa and modifying workouts when im on my cycle.
There are no magic supplements or exercises to fast forward to results.
It really does take ✨consistency✨ - but on all sides. Push hard in the gym and don’t neglect your self care. ————————————————————————-

Faith the size of a mustard seed will move mountains.
Let's just be real I never thought I'd actually get to see this. I never imagined I'd be here. I thought we'd be empty nesters in the next 7 years.
I was ready to quit and move on.
But I didn't and here we are.
Here THEY are.
We struggled for 6 years trying every infertility treatment, Google recommendation, word of mouth suggestion, honestly EXERYTHING. Yet we still got nothing.
It was me. My body.
It wouldn't work. It wouldn't do what God designed it to do. Instead it put me through hell in a hand basket.
I had six surgeries. SIX. All for the same reason.
I was tired. I had enough. I was ready to pull the plug on the whole cycle and refused to take one more pill, shot, or patch.
It wasn't until my husband bought me a necklace with a mustard seed in it. The card it came with reminded me how much faith I needed.
The next day I started the medicine for our frozen embryo transfer.
That same day we decided to name our girl Imani if we had a girl.
Imani means FAITH and there she is.
Are you picking up what I'm putting down?
