dealing with pain and dysfunction


I’m Lindsey, and I’m living in Brooklyn, just graduated from Cornell, and will be a grad student at Columbia University this fall.  I’m here to catalogue my struggle with vulvodynia and pelvic pain as a way to help myself and others who have similar problems.

If you know me in person this may be awkward to read, unless you’d like to know about my sex life. If that’s the case, congrats about being sex-positive (if that’s not the case, this material may not be appropriate for you).

If you don’t know me, feel free to introduce yourself in comments or email if you’re shy. It’s nice to know that we don’t have to go it alone. Welcome.

    I admire your ability to just get out there and publicly say “I have vulvodynia.” This is the only way we’re going to get to the bottom of this, we have to help each other because medical research just isn’t going fast enough. Thank you so much for sharing, I know so many others will be able to learn from your experience.

    Also, strangely enough, after reading your “About” section I noticed you are a Cornell student. (I’m in the process of applying for Fall ’10) and begging to Heaven, (…) while working my ass off, to be accepted.

    …it’s a small world after all.

    I honestly feel like I’m reading my own writing. It took me forever to find anyone through the internet that remotely understood what I’m going through. Being in NYC it seems like you might have some luck finding successful treatment methods. I would love to hear about things you have tried. Feel free to email me at

  5. I enjoy your honesty, being in the pursuit of it myself. I have vulvodynia since 8 years, it’s better sure but I suffer from many other problems as well. My blog is if you’re interested. Just wanted to say hello!
