Conversations with others that shouldn’t have happened #Periodically 5

In my last blog, I talked about conversations with my doctors that I'm not convinced were fair. Today, I want to talk about conversations I've had with my nearest and dearest.

I subscribed and watched occasionally, and thought her Hormone Diaries was such a great idea. While, I confess, I haven't followed it as avidly as I wish I had, the beginning of it was remarkably similar to my own hormone experience, in fact I … Continue reading Witton educates on sex without vilifying it – Review: Doing It
