Removing My Hysteria

New Latin, from English hysteric, adjective, from Latin hystericus, from Greek hysterikos, from hystera womb; from the Greek notion that hysteria was peculiar to women and caused by disturbances of the uterus.

History and Etymology for hysteria

Four weeks ago I had a hysterectomy. Besides the pain, everything seemed to well. I don’t miss my uterus. Everyone asks me how I feel emotionally…and I don’t understand the question. I don’t miss a thing that caused me pain. Why would I?

I’ve had a child, but I don’t attach my worth to an organ. It’s hard to say that I would have been upset if I lost it before I had Aia, but I don’t think so.

Unfortunately I’m still in pain. On the outside I’m healing but inside, I’m not doing as well. So another CT. I sit between the fear of them finding something and nothing, leaving me in pain.

This is not my favorite place to sit.
