Hey, Everyone!

Sorry I haven’t updated in over a month. I’ve been very busy.

First of all, I have a new website called Lauren Vapes over at laurenvapes.com where I talk about my thoughts on vaping and write up reviews of vape products. That’s pretty darn cool. Check out my awesome banner, drawn by my roommate (Ramiro AKA Skincube):

Super rad, right?

Go check that out when you get a chance. Show me some love! 🙂

In other news… I’ve been having a lot of health issues the past few months which have only gotten (much) worse.

As it turns out, I’m severely anemic. It’s left me feeling tired ALL the time, even when I get plenty of sleep. It’s no fun. Fortunately, I’m on some heavy-duty iron pills now, so hopefully that will get taken care of soon.

My other issue? Uterine fibroids. A TON of them.

In fact, I have so many uterine fibroids, and they’re causing SO many health problems, that I am almost certainly going to have to get my uterus removed. Like…there’s a 90% chance that is going to happen, as soon as my insurance works things out and I get assigned a surgeon (probably within the next couple months).

It’s incredibly weird to be only 32 years old and told that I’ll never have children. That was rough. BUT… I’m looking forward to feeling better.

If you’re the praying kind, I’d like to request that you pray for me in the coming weeks. My uterus is slowly trying to kill me, and it’s been extremely hard to deal with. I’m also very scared about having surgery, even though it’s needed. And, of course, the waiting around for the insurance and the doctors to get everything sorted out is also going to be very trying.

I have to get back to work now (yep, I still write and edit, even during all these struggles!), but I wanted to give y’all a quick update. Thanks for sticking with me!

  1. Hi Lauren,

    Once again I’m so sorry to hear about your health problems. I hope that whatever the final decision is, is the best for your health, present, and future life.

    I’m the praying kind, and I always include friends. 😉 (I always wish for good health.)

    If you do have the operation, I hope it goes flawlessly and you have a painless recovery period.

    I’m always available for a chat if you need me!

    Hugs!!!

  2. Oh, Lauren…. I’m so sorrie! It’s in your best interest to have it done then it needs to be done. You can always adopt! If you have any viable eggs maybe they can freeze them and you can use a surrogate? There are options! There is hope to still having kids! ❤❤❤❤❤

    • Thanks, Rochelle. <3

      Yep. There are definitely options if I get into a financial situation where I can afford them. 🙂 I'm not too worried about that aspect (I kinda figured I was meant to be a "cat lady" anyway haha). I'm mostly nervous about the surgery itself and the recovery process.

  3. My prayers are definitely with you sweety! I had no idea, I will say I *am* very glad they figured out the source of a lot of your problems. I’ve been worried that you seemed under the weather at times but was unsure if it was just your grueling work schedule, the heat, etc.

    Anyway, much love. I can’t wait until you feel better with this weight lifted off/out of you.

  4. Aww, I would be willing to have a kid for you… if the arrangements could be made. (As I’m high-risk, under Essure and somehow would have to have Essure reversal or go with IVF to Carry a child again.)

    I’m serious. I want to be pregnant again, but don’t want the responsibility (and could not afford) the care of another child at this time.
