Set Erin's Uterus On Fire

I learned recently that I have a softball-sized tumor in my uterus. It has gone untreated for years, and now the best, safest treatment is a hysterectomy. Had my doctor took my period pain, back pain, fatigue seriously, I could have kept my uterus. Now it's too late. The tumor has completely taken over. 

I have a lot of doctor visits, injections into my abdomen, and then a surgery to look forward to in the next few months. The cost of medical care is weighing on me. And I'm really worried that I won't be able to afford going to any conferences for a while, which is going to isolate me from the people I feel most at home with, and basically kill any chance I have to move forward as a sex educator.  

I am so lucky to have support systems around me that I will be able to lean on right now. I've always been the kind of person to handle the worst of my issues alone, but I really need help with this. If you would like to support me in a tangable way, please consider donating any amount. It all helps. Thank you so much. 

Love you freaks.
