Thank you for your comments.
I'm waiting awhile longer to get checked again.
When I first started having discomfort, I just thought it was something I ate. My stomach was hard and bloated. It didn't get better, only worse. I couldn't eat, walk, or sleep. I finally had to go to the ER. The x-rays showed several fibroids, one 8cm, and two ruptured cysts. The pain lasted for a week and pain medicine did not help.
I had ignored the signs and never gotten a check-up. So please, for anyone else out there reading this, never ignore even the slightest change in your body. Please get checked regularily.
After the visit with the gyno. I started thinking there has to be another way. I cannot loose a major organ. The uterus is very important to us women, not just to have children, more importantly it is our creative center. Unfortunately mine was 'clogged' with indecision, unfufillment, and unhappiness.

I found that as I changed my eating habits, started acupuncture and yoga/meditation, I became stronger. It is a very opening process, very spiritual. Meditaton I find is quieting of the mind, a stillness. It takes time to learn. It's not about something happening, it is just being in the moment, honestly with yourself.

I believe that things truly happen to us for a reason. There is a lesson to learn in how we eat, how we find joy, and how we express our creativity. If I had known how important it is to enjoy life I would probably not have gotten sick. Everything is connected within ourselves.
