I haven't been on my blog much lately. To be honest, I haven't been on it at all, actually. I've been in this stress-ridden rut lately, where everything I do seems to take too much energy. I don't know if it's the end of the cold, dark season catching up to me, or the fact… Continue reading This Is Simply Real Life.
I know I have shared the literal definition of Infertility several times. Infertility is described as the inability to conceive children after one year of having unprotected intercourse. There is so much more to being infertile than what is shared in that one simple sentence. There is sadness, heartache, debt, emptiness.

....Because you'll always find something to hate. So something happened this weekend. It was kind of a life changing moment. For some, it may seem minuscule, but it almost felt like a breakthrough for me. I've been writing a lot lately about my struggle with self-love. I'm a bully to myself constantly and it's both… Continue reading Love Yourself The Way You Are…

Eating Disorders are not diets. But are Mental Disorders with physical side effects. This is a difficult topic for me to write about. I have had this post ready to publish for quite some time, but haven't had the guts to share it. The fear of feeling judged or looked down upon has led to… Continue reading Food Addiction and Eating Disorders
I've mentioned about a million times since I started The Cyster Story, that PCOS and its quirks are no joke. It pretty much raises hell on every aspect of your being, and certainly not in a good way. My symptoms have always made me pretty self-conscious. Every time I notice my side burns coming in,… Continue reading Products I use to Cope with PCOS Symptoms
