May is Mesh Awareness Month -Living with A Transvaginal Mesh Implant Complications

Hello everyone, I hope everyone is having a good week.  I wanted to make a quick post but first as always the disclosure clause.  I am not a doctor, lawyer, or medical or legal professional, everything I talk about is based on my own experiences.  I have a long career history with 2 college degree’s and since at the age of 43 yrs, disabled, I spend a lot of my down time blogging and vlogging in the high hopes that it can help anyone who is suffering at the hands of the Medical Mesh Device.

I am still doing the Pain Management Docuseries, my apologies for not having it posted on Thursday 5/2/2019.  May 1st, 2019 was International Mesh Awareness Day and I was asked to a Video Project for it.  I know I wasn’t able to get everyone that has been impacted, however I want you to know my thoughts, love, and prayers are with you all.  If you would like to see the video’s you can go to my YouTube Channel and see them on the play list, The International Mesh Awareness Day Project.  I ended up doing 3 video’s total.   Here is the link:

Doing this project was very emotional as I saw how many patients were impacted by a Medical Mesh Implant.  I cried a lot during this project.  I was contacted by counties that i had no idea had patients suffering.  It also reminded me of the big Trip (carnival cruise) I took last year with amazing Mesh Sisters.  Also Lake Tahoe last year, was a lot of fun, however I was battling Hives and I felt really lost and miserable, however I enjoyed meeting new mesh sisters.

Meeting these amazing lady’s was my favorite part of these trips.  I will remember this time always.  I know that a lot of us are not well, my love, prayers, and hugs are with us all as we continue to fight the big fight.  Getting all Mesh Devices Banned from the market Worldwide.  I will be posting a new video by this Thursday 5/9/2019.  If I can, I will be posting two due the week the was skipped.

Thank you all so much for your love and support, I couldn’t do this without you all.  Take care of yourselves, we are needed everyday by our families, mesh communities, and our healthcare.  Many blessings and love.
