Thank God for Hyster sisters!

Oh to born in a time such as this�

I am so thankful that this site exists. What a sanctuary for women. I, like many, if not most women, grew up primarily unaware of my genitalia. I was discouraged to talk about or question "it"and if I did we lowered our voices and used code words such as "privates", "wee, wee", or in my home the "place". Heaven forbid I touch that dirty, nasty thing or look at my God given parts. As I/we grew we were ashamed and disgusted by our menstruation; some even feeling it was a curse. Many of us suffered in silence as we faced normal but painful vaginal infection and in most of our cases disease. We've struggled with knowing very little about our body's role in sex or how to take authority over our own sexuality. Later some of us deal with the surprises of pregnancy and some of us with miscarriage. Not to mention the cocktail of hormones that sometimes seem to control us as we react powerlessly to their ebbs and flows.

Then we are painfully stricken with illness, disease, and so much pain. And we are forced to face the decision about hysterectomy. But now we are finally not alone! We have this oasis to question, to share and to grieve together. We are allowed to embrace the wholeness of being a woman. We gather women of all ages, races, religions, and social arenas to girder each other with support. All of you have offered your unique journeys and we've built this authentic and safe place. I am honored to be a woman among such amazing ladies!

Thank you for sharing your journey's with me!
