One thing that many women who suffer from vaginismus fear, or end up being afraid of, is intimacy. I never used to be afraid of intimacy, but after knowingly having vaginismus and experiencing painful sex for almost 2 years, I began to shy away from it. Keep in mind intimacy doesn't mean just sex.

It hit me yesterday that I don't think I ever wrote a post on a bike accident I had when I was in 1st grade that probably contributed to my vaginismus on some level. There are a lot of contributing factors that caused my vaginismus, but I have already talked about those in posts (strict … Continue reading The Bike Accident
Good news! I'm not cursed! Well, at least not at the moment 😉 I still tend to have horrible bad luck. Even my husband tells me the weirdest stuff happens to me.

Just a brief update, because I … Continue reading Update (the slightly inebriated version)
Happy Saturday! Yesterday, I had my appointment with a new gynecologist, since I go through them like cheap clothes. I'm always hesitant with new doctors because 99.9% of the time they don't offer me any new solution for my condition. However, this appointment was different and left me hopeful. Naturally, gyno appointments have always been … Continue reading New Gynecologist
Are you having trouble sleeping lately? I'm not sure what it is, but everyone in my office and personal life are having the worst time getting a good night's sleep.

It’s time for a change! I don’t view this as a negative. Everyone needs change in their life! Lately, I’ve been feeling really depressed and I don’t want to fall down that rabbit hole again. My depression could be heightened because of the whole Day Light Savings thing and lack of Vitamin D, but vaginismus … Continue reading It’s Time for a Change!
