Tough times

Where has the time gone?! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I feel like this year has flown by! In a way, I feel like I missed most of it. I had so many grand plans and fun activities planned, but good old depression and anxiety got in the way. I had even promised myself I would exercise more and I kind of failed there too.

The only thing going through my head this year is how we’re going to pay next month’s rent, how we’re going to be able to fix my problematic and our only car, and also how we are going to be able to pay for the wedding next year on our own.

Throughout the year, I pursued selling my art for my Etsy page, Art Bazaar Creations. I also wrote a book about vaginismus, hoping to spread awareness and also earn extra cash on the side. Unfortunately, both of those did not provide much revenue. It’s not easy selling a book, especially when it is relating to such a specific or taboo topic. Even selling art has posed to be pretty difficult. So, what is next?

This might also be a little controversial as well but I have been toying with the idea of possibly applying for an application to sell my eggs. I know, I know some people might be completely against this idea, but hear me out.

There are so many couples in this world who cannot have children. My fiance and I are unsure if we want kids, so what’s the point of having the eggs if I may never use them. No, I’m not saying that I’m going to be selling ALL of my eggs, but I would definitely sell a few. That way if I do decide I want children in the future I wouldn’t have given all of them away.

However, the application process is pretty intense and they definitely don’t pick just anybody. The screening process is rigorous and, even though I am the right age with blond hair and blue eyes and very little health problems in my family, it’s still a longshot that I would be accepted.

I suppose the reason why I am telling all of you about this is because blogging is my venting outlet. I keep no secrets and just voice how I am feeling or what I am going through.

Have any of you ever done something like this? Any other ideas for earning cash on the side? *Real answers only please*

  1. Interesting idea, and something I’d be open to considering if I met the criteria and payment wasn’t illegal in Canada. The need is there, why not help meet it.
    Have you looked into freelance writing? I would think women’s health or feminist magazines might be interested in articles on vaginismus.
