Guest Contributor Mina: We Need to Talk About Fibroids

It hurt my heart to read Dede’s piece “Please God, Let Me Be Fertile” and it was this line: “It didn’t help that anytime I asked people what they knew about uterine fibroids they were so ignorant” that really struck a chord with me.  Fibroids are definitely a “been there, done that” experience for a […]

The reaction to Guest Contributor Asantewaa’s post a few weeks ago was visceral. I was amazed by the strong reaction that so many Adventurers had to a married woman having an affair – albeit brief – with a man who might as well have been married himself. After all, Ibrahim was in a 5 year […]

My husband is a wonderful man and an excellent spouse. I’ve extolled his virtues on so many occasions that I’ve had to stop for fear of being accused of idol worship or braggadocio.

This post was inspired by a comment made by Kai on the post “Please God Let me be Fertile” written by Dede. Thanks to both Dede and Kai for sharing their personal stories. While reading the comments from Dede’s post, I read a statement written by Kai she wrote “…I started my periods when I […]
