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. But what if in hindsight, these epic struggles could be condensed to 8 pages, and abbreviated with the humor and absurdity they deserve?

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 Lung is a ridiculous story about an acupuncturist accidentally collapsing her lung with a needle; and Ouch! My Poor Vagina is a story about an IUD insertion that threw her vagina out, and lead to Pelvic Floor Dysfunction.

“We stand in solidarity with our Palestinian siblings in Gaza and those among our community who are directly and indirectly affected by the current war and genocide by the Israeli settler-colonial regime. Passive observation of the horrors of bombings, genocide, and prolonged apartheid is not our way. We must rise and firmly proclaim that Palestinian Liberation is a Feminist Imperative.” – Feminists for Jina Seattle
