My surprise hysterectomy at 31

I wrote a bit about my unexpected absence from the blogosphere, but I wasn't specific about what happened.

I had actually written a lengthy piece about the surgery within the first couple of days of coming home from the hospital, but I wasn't ready to share it yet. It was so personal, and I was still in a state of shock. 

So I sat on it, texted and messaged privately with friends, and watched more Full House episodes on Netflix.

It's definitely the most personal story I've ever shared on the internet, for hundreds (thousands?) of eyes to see -- and this is coming from a girl who has blogged about pregnancy constipation, pooping during labour, and peeing in my child's potty while camping.

I'm holding my breath for the kind of harsh comments I got on my very first HuffPo piece (published last week), but I can't control what people say. I told my story, it's out there, and I can only hope it helps someone else going through a similar situation.

Peace, love, and heart-eyed emogios,
Heather
