It's now been five years since my breast reduction and let me tell you: I still love them. I feel the same about them today as I did five years ago, which is pure joy. I admire them everyday, honestly. I admire them before I put on my bra. I admire them when I am [...]
Warning: slightly graphic image of a wound, under a bandaid, but still a wound I got the Nexplanon Implant and had it removed four months later Due to my inability to access birth control as it was prescribed to me (prescribed for continuous use for mood and migraines) at any pharmacy where I previously lived [...]
I don't know about you, but I am emotionally exhausted. The global covid-19 pandemic is emotionally exhausting as much as it is scary.

As someone who writes a lot about my breast reduction and is a huge advocate for the surgery, I get shitty people posting shitty comments that I always delete (I read and approve all comments on my content) because I don't need that kind of negativity and no one else does. 100% of these comments [...]
Like so many women with large breasts I always felt like people saw them first, and me, if at all, second.

Ask your surgeon and doctor about the things you care about, and don't let yourself get to a point where you are so desperate anything is good enough for you. Ask questions and if you don't like the answers, it's okay to talk to other surgeons covered by your insurance. You are going to a surgeon for a very important medical service, if they aren't satisfying your needs and concerns, find someone who will. Know as much as you can about your surgery as possible. Knowledge, in this sense, can only hep you in your breast reduction process and give you agency.
