Renee Rhodes is a freelance writer and aspiring author who has had crappy luck her entire life. A sickly childhood, mystery illnesses in adulthood (including persistent, recurring abdominal/digestive issues that doctors kept insisting were all in her head), and just general bad stuff happening for no reason.

But the one that takes the taco was finding out that she has stage four endometriosis (during laparoscopic surgery that she thought would be removing ovarian cysts) that has glued her insides together, a condition that, she’s been advised, requires a complete hysterectomy and salpingo-oophorectomy to “cure.” (Which won’t actually cure anything, but might reduce the chances of the endometriosis coming back and causing further complications with her insides…Guess it wasn’t all “in her head” after all!) And that she, despite being told that she still had “plenty of time” to start a family, actually never had any time at all, because she can’t have kids.

Oh, yeah, and she will be thrown into surgical menopause and might become sexually dysfunctional. At the age of 33.

How d’ya like them apples?

Haha, just kidding. Those aren’t apples at all — they’re rocks.
