I’m so excited I’m going to BURST!
Earlier this month Healthline.com‘s staff asked if I would be interested in writing a few pieces for their site. I’ve enjoyed the information they’ve had to offer in the past, and have been honored with a few of their blog awards, so I jumped at the chance to help!
They requested two things:
- An Open Letter to their readers about my experience with Endometriosis, and any thoughts I wanted to share; and
- Tips & Tricks on handling painful sex that can sometimes accompany Endometriosis.
I jumped at the chance and began writing.
After I submitted the two pieces, I was then advised that Healthline.com would like to compensate me for my work. Whua?!? You’re going to PAY me to write about Endometriosis and spreading awareness and helping support others? …Now if you know me, you know I have this little unwritten moral code: if I make any funds dealing with Endometriosis awareness, fundraising, or the blog, I’m donating it straight to the Endometriosis Foundation of America. I asked if they could just donate the money directly to the EFA for me; however, due to accounting reasons and stuff, they couldn’t. So as soon as these funds hit my bank account *poof* they’ll be going straight to the EFA.
I will not, nor will I ever, profit from this damn disease.
BUT, I’m SO honored and excited and jazzed and thrilled and … excited! 😀 I wanted to share these two pieces with you. If either of them resonates with you, please feel free to share with anyone and everyone.

Thank you, Healthline staff, for this incredible opportunity for outreach and support.
If you read the articles and want to chime in your thoughts, I’d love to hear from you 🙂
