Hi mazemelissa! There definitely have been ups and downs. This is definitely a condition that is physical and mental – and sometimes I really have to psyche myself up mentally to do the treatment. It has gotten easier – I’m not crying anymore but it is still nerve wracking. One day at a time!

My dilators arrived and they’re definitely super intimidating… but even making a pelvic floor appointment was intimidating and sent me into tears so… I can do it!

Thank you recessivegenequeen! It’s definitely a journey and some days (like Sunday and last night Monday!) I was feeling very pumped but there are times the self-doubt comes in. I will definitely update here though as I go. Hopefully these words help at least one woman out there think about treatment and facing this.
