• How to deal with Chronic (Pelvic) Pain

    Many of the women I help struggle with dealing with their condition, to the point that they drive themselves crazy and give up all hope (I’ve been there plenty of times). There is hope, there’s plenty of hope. And it all starts with you. You are the leader of your life, of your health, and you decide how much you want to prioritize to feel good instead of sitting in your shitty feelings, even though some days it feels AMAZING to sit in those feelings, and throw yourself a pity party🥳 But at some point you gotta pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and take a look at what you…

  • 3 exercises to release pelvic floor muscles

    Hi you lovely LS ladies (and any other ladies along for the ride),In yesterday’s Instagram post I posted a short video of me doing some exercises to release the hips, you can check out that video here. Everyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love yoga and movement, anything to make my body feel better and lighter. Many of us suffering from Lichen Sclerosus, Vulvodynia or Endometriosis, just to mention a few, also suffer from pelvic floor dysfunction. Often it is more than just having tight pelvic floor muscles, it can also include tight low back muscles, thigh muscles (inner and outer), hip muscles, glutes. Which can result in…

  • Breathe for better health

    And everyone’s like: “Yeah… we all already breathe?” – But I’m talking about actually BREATHING here! HAPPY MONDAY Y’ALL! The focus on breathing is highly underestimated I must say. The POWER breathing has on your body is amazing! I got into yoga about 5 years ago, but it wasn’t until last year I really started paying attention to my breathing, and boy it’s such an amazing tool for my healing, both mentally and physically.  Many people do yoga only to get a good workout, but breathing is such an important tool as well. Anyone who comes to my yoga classes knows how much time I spend talking about breathing, and…

  • 3 ways to decrease your stress levels

    I sent out an email to my fellow LS-ladies a while back and it was very popular so I figured I’d share it in a post for the rest of you because it think it’s applicable to any sort of pain we might be dealing with.   I don’t know about you but stress has a huuuge impact on my Lichen Sclerosus and it’s role in my life. As we all probably know is that stress not only creates oxidative stress in the body, an imbalance in our system that is damaging to our cells that can lead to dis-ease, depression, chronic fatigue, and in worst case case scenario: cancer,…

  • Incorporate this into your morning routine for less pain

    We all probably wake up stiff, and either we have a hard time getting out of bed because mentally we are not really ready, or we are just in so much pain that we’d rather stay in bed than face the day ahead. I want to help you start your day off fresh and maybe a little less pain free, by bringing more awareness into the body with some slow movements. Doing some light stretches in the morning can help tremendously, and for these ones you don’t even have to get out of bed! You are basically just rolling around in bed, too easy! Just lie on your back and…

  • Today it´s this lady´s 30:th birthday!!!

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY PENNY! ♥ Pssst! I am Penny´s mother, hijacking her blog to wish her a beautiful birthday by sharing it with her followers, and mine, and the world.

Thank God for the world wide web and messenger! 😀 NOW – I really would like this to be an explosion of congratulations from all over the world – from Penny´s followers here on her website, Instagram, Facebook… simply by posting a comment on the site of…

  • No ‘New Year, New Me’ bullshit

    Happy 2020! Finally a new year, and finally a new decade. Every new year I have this feeling of freshness. I’m not a big new year’s fan but I like the idea of a new year. Anything is possible (though, it always is)! And this feeling of freshness is often disturbed by all the things I read online, things I hear on the radio or from clients. We all believe anything is possible, but it often has to do with our looks, or how we have to change ourselves to fit in to this little box that we call society. Going to a fitness class this time of year and…

  • I’m in control of my own health

    Taking control of our own health, that’s what we’re doing this year. Nothing else. We won’t let society, influencers or loud people decide what we’re supposed to do with our bodies, how we are supposed to look, feel, workout, eat, think, etc. and we won’t let doctors have the final word on how we are supposed to feel, do, heal, or just accept. I speak to so many women whom are devastated because either their doctor refuses to do a biopsy, or the doctor doesn’t tell them anything about their condition. Which ends up with us, you, me, the mama trying to help her little girl, walking out of the…

  • From me to all of you: Have A Merry (stress-free) Christmas!

    The holidays are here, and the stress surrounding it is probably visiting as well! Stress is one of my biggest triggers for a massive flare-up. Many things play a part in my flare-ups, and sometimes it’s hard to tell which one is which – but stress is definitely one! Stress from going everywhere – being on time, spending time with family (God we love em’, but if you’re a lone wolf, introvert, or just simply need your alone-time it can be a freaking nightmare), getting in the car too quickly (whoops! A tear!), fighting with people in the grocery store – you get the picture. Stress we put on ourselves…

  • Chronic pain syndrome without an identifiable cause

    For those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram might not know that I also suffer from Vulvodynia, same as many of you who are in this space. Vulvodynia is known as a chronic pain syndrome that affects the vulvar area and occurs without an identifiable cause. The symptoms can be burning, stinging, irritation or sharp pain around on the vulva as well as at the entrance of the vagina. It is not a sexually transmitted disease. It is often too painful to have sex, use tampons or even be lightly touched. My first time having sex it was like hitting a f*cking wall. Seriously. It’s kind of funny…
