Unintended break

Unintended break

The last 44 days have been a whirlwind. I can’t believe so much time passed without the time to post. Until recently, the reality of what we had to tackle this summer truly escaped me. I hadn’t counted on the intensity of a summer graduate-level course. I learned a great deal in the eight-week class … Continue reading

Dear Pelvis

Dear Pelvis

So I guess I’m officially having a conversation with my pelvis. Last night, instead of writing more from my pelvis to myself (see previous post), I responded. Dear Pelvis, Thank you for saying what you had to say. Heart, Gut, Brain and Intuition all agree with you. But right now — as the weather crashes … Continue reading

Homework assignment

At therapy last week I got a homework assignment: Write a letter to yourself, from your pelvis. Maybe this sounds crazy, she said, and you don’t have to agree. But what do you think of that? Here’s the kicker: I have to read it aloud at my next appointment. I have to put it on … Continue reading

What my Daddy would say

What my Daddy would say

I miss my Dad. This has nothing to do with my recovery, and everything to do with it all at once. His death, officially listed as complications of Type II Diabetes a few months shy of birthday 56, is a cautionary tale. A textbook example of what can happen when you don’t take personal responsibility … Continue reading

Making connections

The weather improved in a big way on Thursday afternoon and continues to be lovely. My pelvis and I are enjoying the benefit of steady air pressure. I had a sort of epiphany today about the connection between my pelvis and the weather: I am blessed to be so directly connected to Mother Earth in … Continue reading

Three days

For more than two weeks in a row I’ve been feeling good and strong, busy at work, having fun with my husband and son at home and staying on top of my homework. But the last three days basically … Continue reading

A great day spurs reflection

I feel like today was my son’s first St. Patrick’s Day, the first for the three of us celebrating together. It wasn’t. My son is coming up on 14 months old. We watched March 17 come and go as a family of three last year. The difference: Last year at this time I was in … Continue reading

They say no news is good news

My posts are a lot lest frequent lately and some of you have asked about this. I am living proof that no news is good news — at least lately. I have so much to be excited about and so much I want to share but I’ve been busy being healthy. Here’s my best example … Continue reading

New DSP Community

This is amazing! A while back I set up a Google alert for the term “diastasis symphysis pubis”. It has helped me find some great articles and other momma’s who post on sites like Baby Center. Today, it lead me to a brand new forum called SymphysisPubis.com. The forum was started this week by Sharon, … Continue reading
