This is a story about sexual trauma and its direct link to Aryn’s eating disorder that continued while she was pregnant. It’s a story of birth trauma, and the hysterectomy that followed. It’s a story of how Aryn’s mental health deteriorated after the hysterectomy to the point of an attempted suicide. It’s a story of Aryn’s journey to understand how these events have shaped her life, and of her resolve to move forward with forgiveness and compassion.
