Learn Why Peeing Just In Case Isn't Such a Great Idea After All

We make lots of ridiculous choices regarding sleep. As a kid, we might have snuck under our covers with a flashlight and read Powerpuff Girls chapter books, and later we went to slumber parties and competed to see which seventh grader could keep their eyes open til morning. As youngish adults we had many (maybe too many) late-night/early-morning study sessions or drunk-fests. And as a parent, you (like me) may have stayed up well past bedtime to be blissfully alone, curled up with a pint of Cherry Garcia and a book of sudoku puzzles. We definitely needed more hours to snooze—but there was no way we were trading our *bedazzled* nightlife in favor of practicing smart sleep hygiene.

Physical Therapist For Your Vagina
Elisha Beach writing for Scary Mommy penned this fantastic article about why you might want to get a physical therapist for your vagina, and she was gracious enough to ask for my input. Here is a brief synopsis of the article, along with a link to the full article below.

Did you know there was such a thing as a pelvic floor therapist — that’s right — a physical therapist for your vagina? They can help you fix things like incontinence, improve sexual experience and provide pelvic stability after giving birth. And I want to know why the hell is this not common knowledge?

I know I can’t be the only one that was clueless about this. After having kids, I thought I was relegated to peeing on myself for the rest of my life. And I had also resigned myself to not feeling my husband during sex as much as I use to before birthing my little crotch destroyers. But after a sneezing incident where I managed to shatter my phone when I panicked and snatched my legs together, a doctor friend told me my problem can be fixed. What?! You mean I am not ruined for life?

The website Scary Mommy has reached out to Heather Jeffcoat for some tips on "Pandemic Poops".

Let’s talk about poop. It’s something we all do (every day, if we’re lucky) and most of us have no idea how much our poop is talking to us — we usually just pinch one off and go about our day without thinking about it. But our digestive tracts react to stress, anxiety, and changes in our eating habits.

Many of us aren’t going to poll our friends about it on Facebook, but chances are you’ve gone through a few different poop stages since the outbreak of COVID-19, and you might be wondering why. You may be thinking you just have more time to ponder your poop — but chances are, the stress, anxiety, and change in routine is all having an effect on your bowels.
