It will cramp up to the point of nausea. Either that or I sleep through it every night and it's just something that happens. But I don't know. I don't know. I can't explain my body or Adenomyosis.” — Emily, 5 Days Until Uterus Eviction Day >>> SUPPORT THE SHOW <<< ** Stay in the loop with our latest episodes, upcoming topics, and exciting announcements — ** In This Episode: I’m currently dealing with...

“I think I'm feeling good. I'm still a little nervous. I can't shake the nerves. And you know what? I think I need to radically accept that those nerves and that anxiety is going to be with me.

In This Episode:

  • Whew! It’s a frustrating start to the episode. The stress of the upcoming hysterectomy is coming out.

  • After a rough morning of video game system troubleshooting gone wrong, the idea of adding more to the pile of stuff already going on is not the last thing I want

  • I keep toying with the idea of making a non-explicit version of the podcast where I bleep out the swears, but this one would just be one long bleeeeeep I think!

  • There’s so much vying for my attention in the weeks leading up to surgery that I’m having trouble juggling it all.

  • Learn my favorite method of organizing and prioritizing what I need to do, which President Eisenhower supposedly used — categorizing tasks as Urgent-Important; Urgent-Not Important, Not Urgent-Important, and Not Urgent-Not Important

  • If you need a reminder to count the good things you did for yourself today, consider this your nudge! And if you can’t think of anything, is there something right now you can do quickly for yourself? Take your vitamins? Get a glass of water? Go for a walk?

  • And don’t forget to show yourself grace (talking to me too, here)

  • Tara Brach’s Podcast and Radical Acceptance Book are favorites in my mental health toolbox.

  • Also, yay! I made an appointment with my therapist!
