Today is ‘Make a Friend’ Day and it just tickles us that over the years that many of our HysterSisters have found friends here in our forum areas.  We have a wonderful HysterSisters community that share things good and bad, happy and sad.  Many of our members feel so connected that they even share things beyond medical conditions!  Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week you can pop into our forum area and find a virtual friend.

So, here’s to celebrating the day and just possibly making at least one new friend today!

Are you in need of a hug today?! Do you have some words of encouragement for a fellow HysterSister?


Today is Hugging Day and is celebrated in many countries that our HysterSisters call home!  So today, we’d like to give YOU a hug!  A hug to our HysterSisters that are worried about their upcoming hysterectomies, a hug to our HysterSisters that are home recovering and might be feeling blue or just a bit down that they aren’t quite back to themselves yet, a hug to our HysterSisters that share their stories and show care for others in our forum area and hugs to the family and friends that are helping, supporting, caring, etc. for our HysterSisters that are part of the community for a variety of reasons.

So, here’s a hug for you, now…who are you going to share it with?

Today is ‘Make Your Dreams Come True Day’! What is your Dream?

HysterSisters helping one another

If you are a woman who is living with chronic pain or a constantly annoying condition, then your dreams probably aren’t about new cars or lavish trips but rather about a day in which you can live “normally” and/or without pain.

So, we celebrate this ‘Make Your Dreams Come True Day’ in a HysterSisters way!  From our extensive library of articles to our forum areas where our HysterSisters hang out and chat, share their stories, answer questions from their experiences, and more, come celebrate the day with women who not only “get” your dreams, but may share yours too!

Today is Homemade Bread Day! Do you like making or eating bread? Did you know that we have a recipe section?

Sisteritaville Bread and Muffin section

Tomorrow is Homemade Bread Day so in case you would rather start the day off eating bread and not making it, we thought we’d let you know a day early so you can prepare in a HysterSisters way.  If you are confused by what we mean, then you must not have perused our Sisteritaville section of our forum area yet.

Not only can you find many bread recipes that would be just right for Homemade Bread Day, but you can also find recipes for anything from Main Dishes to Cake and Pies.  So many recipes…where are you going to start?!

Welcome Autumn!

First day of Autumn

It was with a bit of surprise that our calendars indicated that today is the First day of Autumn as here in Texas we are still wearing shorts and flip-flops and our pools are still in full use!

However, the onset of Fall is welcome and while we experience very little truly cold weather here, this time of year finds many of us seeing the leaves drop in anticipation of the cooler weather which we like to enjoy with a variety of foods and drinks that are only tolerable when the temperatures reach below 75°!  You know the recipes we’re talking about…apple cider, vegetable stews, and pumpkin anything just to name a few!!

One of our favorite resources for these kinds of recipes is from our fellow HysterSisters in our Sisteritaville Cookbook area.  Now….just to decide which recipe to try first!

Happy National Milk Chocolate Day! Did you know that we have recipes right here on HysterSisters?! What’s your favorite Milk Chocolate dessert?

As if any of really need an excuse to eat chocolate, right?!  But, if it makes you feel any better…today is National Milk Chocolate Day!   So as we saw this tasty day pop up on our calendar, it led us to peruse the many wonderful recipes we have posted right here on HysterSisters.  You did know that we have such a place, right?!

Our HysterSisters have contributed tasty recipes for everything from Main Dishes and Sides to Vegetarian and of course, desserts!!  Our Forum area is chock full of helpful information and conversations about so many things, so if you haven’t hung out with the HysterSisters yet, be sure to “drop by” and join in.

Happy HysterSisters Day! Are you planning a hysterectomy? Are you recovering from your surgery? We are here for you!

Today is Make Up Your Own Holiday Day, so how about we celebrate “HysterSister Day”?!  Why not?!  We have a wonderful, caring community of women that share information, swap stories and offer support all the way before, during and after hysterectomy and/or related surgeries/procedures.

Do you have a story that would help another woman?  You can share your story or you can visit our forum area where you can chat with other women in a comfortable, confidential setting.  Of course, sometimes you just aren’t in the mood to “chat” so you can always access our library of articles and e-books at any time. 

Happy HysterSisters Day!  See you soon!

Are you having a hysterectomy this year? Do you have questions?! Did you know we offer pre-op chats?

If you are facing a hysterectomy or other similar surgery this year, chances are you have questions about how to prep for that surgery, what exactly the surgery is, what to expect at the hospital or maybe even how to prepare your home or family for your recovery time.

While we have hundreds of articles available to you on all of those topics and more on our main site and you can ask your medical professionals, sometimes there’s just nothing like talking to someone who’s ‘been there, done that’.  You have access to a wonderful community of women in our Forum area any time of the day, but did you also know that we host pre-op chats throughout the year?

Our next chat is coming up on March 19th, but you can see a list of all of our chat times by looking on our home page on the right-hand side. So, bring your questions and…Let’s chat!

Thank you to all of our HysterSisters for a wonderful 2014!

As 2014 comes to an end, it is with much gratitude and admiration for all of our HysterSisters that have passed through our virtual doors over the past 12 months.

The sharing of tears, worry, progress, encouragement and so much more is exactly why our community exists and we look forward to a wonderful 2015 with you!
