I literally cried when I watched this video for the first time. And, to be honest, I feel kind of vulnerable sharing this with you. Because Lara Parker (the main girl in the video, who legit has these conditions) does an excellent job showing what it is really like to have vaginal pain.
The anxiety and depression, the tension and breath work, the disappointment, the triggering conversations and shows, the endless doctor’s appointments… THIS IS MY LIFE!
I love that this video ends with a message of hope. With friends who listen and support. A partner who is willing to be “unconventional” and take things in stride. A doctor who listens and knows. Hope. Because this is also my life.
