✨ATTN: MRKH Community!✨
We all know that being a teenager is HARD! Getting an MRKH diagnosis during this vulnerable time in your life can rock you to your core. Receiving this diagnosis as a young adult can bring feelings of self-doubt, uncertainty, confusion, isolation, denial, self-worth, etc., We are not mature enough to understand all the challenges that come with this life changing diagnosis. Over the years, I’ve learned many life lessons and pieces of advice that I wish I could have shared with my younger self. If I had the knowledge and wisdom that I have now, at age 17, it would have given me the confidence, reassurance and empowerment that I desperately needed at a younger age to know that I would be okay.
With that, I am pleased to announce a new writing series I have been working on for months called, “What I Would Tell My 17 Year Old Self (MRKH Edition)”.
My hope for this series is to bring hope for those newly diagnosed and to be therapeutic for experienced MRKHers to show just how far they have come. I will be sharing two write-ups a week, for as long as I receive submissions. I welcome and encourage everyone who wants to participate, to submit their write-up to me and I will gladly publish it on the Beautiful You MRKH Foundation blog.
I will be launching this tomorrow. 🌟I am so excited!⭐️ I cannot wait to share with all of you a side project I have envisioned for over a year that has finally come to fruition. I truly hope our collective words will not only empower MRKHers, but will also provide hope to care providers, family members, significant others and friends to see – it does get better. This series is for all of us.
I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
