gOOD AFTERNOONG my fucking cycle is over do you know how much shit i got done today can you believe i want to be alive again

lmao this alone should be able to get me that fucking hysterectomy

im making a list to bring to a potential doctor to advocate for a hysto feel free to add/help 

history of fibroids in my family
birth control doesnt work with me because i am sensitive to medication and have had bad side effects
my mood swings are so bad that people i love actively avoid me for 2 weeks
i often cannot get out of bed or my room
it renders me unable to take care of myself in the same ways i can when im not on my period & im worried that will affect my ability to retain employment

im making a list to bring to a potential doctor to advocate for a hysto feel free to add/help 

the other stuff that depending on the doctor i might bring up/i wont bring up i need a "Proper" way of saying this:
it makes me dysphoric as hell
not having kids
i know my body better than you do
that history of pain in my family has been ignored for decades bc they are black women & thats on you & your people so tell me how youre going to fix it now bc youve hurt them irreparably for generations

so basically if anyone has navigated the american medical system in getting a hysterectomy and has tips (especially if youre black/a person of color) or want to point me in the direction of such id appreciate the hell out of it

@wenotfreeyet heya, im in the process myself. It varies significantly based on where u are... unforc im white but i can at least help w logistics of it?

Do you have a fam history of complications or cancers? Cuz honestly without this they will fight u every step of the way :T
