dealing with pain and dysfunction



Vulvodynia Heroes

I just got word today that the first crowdsourced vulvodynia book is set to be released on February 24th, and my blog is to be featured in it.  The book is called Vulvodynia Heroes:  190 Women Share Their Experiences and Treatments, and is available here from CureTogether, either as a paperback or .pdf download.  The absence of real women’s voices from healthcare has been one of the largest detriments to receiving proper funding for research of conditions that affect women.  This book is only possible because of the wonderful support networks that we have built online and in our communities–something that’s awfully hard to do with a topic that’s so often shouted down, when it’s even talked about at all.  The patriarchal doctor-knows-best attitudes that surround pelvic pain (and, frankly, almost all other women’s health concerns) have gone on for far too long.  It’s high time we make our experiences heard.  Perhaps this book will be a step towards validating real women’s experiences and furthering our sources of support.

    It’s genuinely strange, i was on your page just 15 min. before, once the internet browser i use Opera was freezing to death and trigged a CTD, did you by any means added some new plugins or adjusted something else which could perhaps cause such a behavior? I pay a visit to your site fairly regulary and by no means had that ever before!

    That is somewhat Offtopic, but i assumed you might give me some tips.

    With regards to registering and hosting a domain name, I have no idea what I ought to do.

    A. Should I register and host at the same place? Or B.
    Should I register my domain name with one company and host it with
    another? I would prefer to do A, but therein
    lies my difficulty. I want to register my
    domain name with GoDaddy, because I like their rates. On the other hand, I’d rather not host my site with them. What would be your solution?

    Heya, i ‘m a blogger just like you, and was wondering if you ever experimented with those addthis.com follow me buttons and if they are any good. I realized they load quite a bunch of code, so i am doubtful if its indeed worth adding it, due the increase of KB of the total filesize. Do you have ever tried it? I am excited to hear what other people say about that? I would highly appreciate if you could sent me a message to judy-ivory@gmail.com if you have any working experience with those addons. Thx .. btw, luv the site since months!

    I’m starting a internet website directory and was wondering if I can submit your blog? I’m hoping to increase my directory slowly by hand so that it
    retains top quality. I will make sure and put your blog in
    the correct category and I’ll additionally use, “Vulvodynia Heroes | dealing with pain and dysfunction” as your anchor text. Please let me know if this is okay with you by mailing me at: martharitchie@yahoo.de. Cheers
