Introducing myself and my journal: A Day In The Life Of An MA Girl

About Me:
Hi all, I am grateful to have found a place to speak out. I was diagnosed with Mullerian Agenesis in the year 2013, this is one of my worst years, my days tend to be very long with different emotions going on in my mind but i tend to find a way to work though them. Let me tell you a little bit about MA, MA put in simple words is a disorder where by the uterus is either completely missing or there is very little thus unable to carry a pregnancy,sometimes there is complete absence of the uterus, vagina and cervix, this makes sex either completely impossible or very painful. I was diagnosed at the age of 23 and till now i have not found a foundation that deals with MA. this is just a bit about MA i will tell you more as the days go by. My dream is to build a foundation that deals with MA, spread its awareness, study it more and find out more about it but most of all i would like to provide help and companionship to the women out there who go through it, it is not an easy journey especially when you are alone but i believe that together as one anything is possible.

My Passions:
Education And Fashion

My Challenges:
Financial Mainly, Emotional

My Vision for the Future:
That there will be a place where women like me can run to for help and guidance.

My Areas of Expertise:
Fashion

Welcome, Joaneva!

Dear Joaneva,

I too am so glad that you have found World Pulse, a place to speak out and share your experience with us. I welcome you to this community of people from around the world (more than 190 countries!) We are mostly women, but there is a growing number of men who have joined as well. Many of us have in common a desire to end suffering, promote peace, justice and understanding, as well as to bring women's voices and experiences forward, where they have traditionally been marginalized or silenced. It is a powerful platform to make your voice heard on the matters that mean the most to you, and can also be a place to receive empathy, support, and encouragement.

I hadn't heard of Mullerian Agenesis before, and looked it up on Wikipedia just now. I think it's wonderful that you plan to network with others who have MA, offering each other help and companionship. Everything is easier when we know we're not alone with it--when we know that others truly understand what we're going through and can empathize with us.

The Getting Started Guide is useful to learn more about networking in the World Pulse community: http://worldpulse.com/pulsewire/about/guide

I'm glad that you're here and look forward to reading more from you in the days to come!

With love,

Susan

Hi

Hi Jeoneva,

I am impressed that you have spoken up about this. You know what, i have heard of people not having vaginas but never thought it was real, besides that it even has a name. Thanks for sharing and I can only imagine what you go through everyday. However, you are a strong lady that you have spoken about it and be assured that you are loved.

Share information with us so that we help share information around the world.

With love,
Sharon
