It is almost a year after the initial conversation that sparked the crazy idea to write a collection of women's stories and call it "My Wandering Uterus" (for more details on that journey, please reference Byron Ballard's blog here: http://www.myvillagewitch.com/my-wandering-uterus/)

As I'm putting together a presentation on the history of the theory of trauma, the irony of this is not lost on me. Men like Jean Martin Charcot and Pierre Janet were some of the first men in their field to turn the tide against the asinine diagnosis of hysteria; recognizing that the manifestation of trauma based symptoms were not physiological in nature, but psychological, and not limited to the uterus. The article that inspired this conversation can be read here: https://lithub.com/hysteria-witches-and-the-wandering-uterus-a-brief-history/

I am beyond over-the-moon pleased that this project is almost complete. So many talented voices have come together to share their stories and their perspectives, and I'm honored to be among them. 

The book is finally available for purchase! https://www.amazon.com/My-Wandering-Uterus-traveling-female/dp/1986379019/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1522111206&sr=8-1&keywords=my+wandering+uterus
