Our struggle to care for our own bodies is an epic one. There is drama behind each ailment we face—pain, fear, uncertainties, not to mention the obstacles we face when we enter the healthcare system.

Ouch! My Poor Body is a series of stories Monica Johnson crafted about her body’s aches, pains, and traumas. Ouch! My Poor Foot recounts her years-long struggle with Morton’s Neuroma; Ouch!

My Poor Vagina is a story about an IUD insertion that threw her vagina out, and lead to Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.
