On Tuesday, March 10, 2015, my dear friend Rebekah Gough bravely shared on her blog about the painful journey she has  been on the past three years fighting Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome. You can read the blog post here: Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome :: My Story . After reading about the excruciating physical and emotional trauma she has experienced and about the  healing she could potentially receive from having a Tubal Reversal, I felt compelled to do something. Over the years Rebekah has made so many friends and fans through her blog A Bit of Sunshine (where she created and hosts the monthly photography project Ten on Ten) and her beautiful and inspiring feed on instagram. If you are anything like me, you probably live far away from her and wonder how you could possibly help and show your support in a tangible way. But as I prayed for her this afternoon, the Lord put this thought on my heart: What would it take for all of us who love her to rally together and make this surgery a reality? What would it take for every blog reader or instagram follower to just skip their Starbucks one day this week and give a couple of bucks here? I am confident that we can do this and radically change Rebekah's life! Thank you so much, sweet friends!

Oh friends! I am seriously so overwhelmed and in tears at how God has used you to provide for Rebekah! In less than 24 hours, you have raised almost half of the money she needs to have the Tubal Reversal surgery! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I read your blog and I cried. This is exactly what I've been dealing with for the last 14 years. Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy. I have really negative thoughts, anxiety, the list goes on. Actually from the list I suffer from 31 of them. I was a young mom in my early 20's and had a four month old and got pregnant again. I was struggling to accept being pregnant again so soon. I was on birth control but I was never told that being on heavy antibiotics could interfere with them. I had almost lost my life to endocarditis in November 2002 after a dental cleaning and had a lengthly hospital stay of 6 weeks. I found out I was pregnant again in January 2003. As soon as my OB/GYN found out I was pregnant again she instantly said I should have a tubal ligation. Young, shocked, scared because I almost died I agreed and signed papers. Signing those papers was the worst thing I could of done to myself. I've lost myself. I'm in my early 30's and my blood work already says I'm going into menopause. My dr. didn't care about me, or the side effects I could have...all she cared about was wheeling me into an OR room minutes after giving birth naturally to ruin my life. I wish you the best outcome and returned health.
