Hi,

I admire Tamra for trying to bring the subject of vulvar/pelvic pain to awareness. As a sufferer of something similar, I really feel the rest of the world esp medical personnel need to learn about chronic pelvic pain issues, not just how to treat it, but to find the cause of it. tTamra explains to us where her pain originated. Reading her blog has helped me learn more about hip tears and vulvar issues. I appreciate her telling her story to help others who are in pain/ She is a great writer,very positive and brave.

Thanks Tamra for telling us your story!
