Ladies, this is something I want to run by you.

October 5, 2010 at 12:54 am (Housekeeping: General blog info, Just wondering..., With lives like ours: FAQ and Discussion Section)

I have been thinking a lot lately about MRKH, resources available to us and the like. Our stories are scattered all over the internet, in blogs, websites and private groups. I was wondering if any of you would feel comfortable sharing your story with the world in the form of a short story novel (non-fiction). Specifically, we could collaborate and put together a book which brings together our stories about MRKH. Maybe we could each contribute a chapter. This could even be done anonymously…no real names need be mentioned. In fact, I would be more comfortable with that myself. I just think it would be so beneficial for new MRKH girls to hear stories about those who have succeeded and overcome the struggles associated with MRKH…

What do you think? Love it or hate it? I don’t care. I just want to hear your ideas.

    I love this idea. i tried to write a book about it before, but i had so much to do back then (still being at college and stuff) i had all the female members of my family write something. it was great, but i never finished it. this is a fantastic idea. i would be very willing to contribute annon. 🙂 just let me know when u want it by! 😀

      Perfect! Thanks Cherrise!!! I am going to do some research on whether we can get it published (via literary agents etc.). I did all this kind of stuff for my prof the past two summer so I’ll make a few inquires. I just wanted to see if others would be willing to contribute! It could be very healing for all of us and help other MRKH girls at the same time! xox

    I would be more than willing to do my bit for this book 🙂 Like said before, I also once tried writing my story down, but found it pointless as I didn’t know what to do with it once i was done.lol. Let me know when you want it by and how many pages ect and Ill get it in 🙂 xx

      Perfect! I know exactly what you mean about what to do with our individual stories! It would be awesome to get it all together and then publish it as a collection of short stories (non-fiction of course).

    I would like to participate in this project. As someone diagnosed 30 years ago, I think I may have a slightly different experience than some of the younger women have had. It wasn’t until I found MRKH on the internet that I knew there was a name or that there were other women like me. Let me know the details when you get them.

    • MRKHCanada said,

      That’s great, Loraine! I’ll post when I have more details.

    I’d love to participate and contribute my story! Great idea!

    I like to participate too. However I would do this anonymously as I’m a teacher and it’s not something I’d like my students to pull up in a google search about me.

    • MRKHCanada said,

      Totally understandable! I am also not comfortable sharing my identity publicly so I understand where you are coming from. I would love your input! I will try and get something together this summer once my masters coursework lets up a bit!

    Kids especially teenagers can be incredibly insensitive and cruel.

    sounds like a great idea! I would love to share my story and read others!

    • MRKHCanada said,

      That’s amazing!!! I’m in the process of working through my Masters degree but things are calm for a while so I’m trying to figure out the best way to put our stories together!:)

    A month ago I was diagnosed with MRKH. The idea of a book about women with MRKH sounds amazing. Yesterday I was looking on my nook to see if any books were available about MRKH, which there were none of. Eventhough I am only seventeen years old I would like to conribute to the book.
