Hi there! Welcome to my blog, πŸ’›ribbonrx! The goal of this blog is to give a voice to issues that are near and dear to my heart (meaning, issues I suffer from) that need a louder voice. Topics covered include:

  • Endometriosis (visit Yellow for Endometriosis, my specific page for endo information, resources, and links to my blog posts)
  • Adenomyosis
  • Celiac disease
  • Depression *some trigger warnings provided on these posts*
  • Self harm *trigger warnings provided on these posts*
  • Migraines
  • Infertility
  • Social anxiety
  • Chronic pain
  • Stigmas surrounding mental health and chronic pain
  • Pituitary tumors (specifically prolactinomas)
  • Dysautonomia
  • Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS)
  • Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type (hEDS) or, as my geneticist said, an “unspecified connective tissue disorder,” so perhaps on the range of Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders (HSD) based on the newly released 2017 diagnostic criteria.
  • Being a spoonie

I also randomly blog about cats, books, dance, and other fun things.


I hope here you find support and helpful information regarding these illnesses. Welcome and enjoy!

  2. Laura, you are a talented writer. Consider more writing opportunities, short stories, children’s books. You will be helping others in ways yet unknown. You would also be good at editing pharma journals or English as a second language scientific writing and would receive financial remuneration for your work. The opportunities await someone with your skill set. Seek out some of the opportunities to serve on editorial boards or a reviewer for Pharmaceutical journals. You have the requisite knowledge and writing skill which is a needed combination.
    It would also keep you current on the literature in your area of expertise. You are valued ! Pam
