This is from an article on Sphere.com:
Allison Henry isn't the first to suffer from a horrifying medical condition that few women talk about. But her case was particularly bad, and she's just one of the few brave souls willing to come forward so that others will have the courage to seek help. To put it bluntly, as Henry does: "My vagina fell out of my body."
It began five years ago, when Henry was in her 10th week of pregnancy with Kirian, her second child. She had vowed that she wouldn't gain 60 pounds this time around, and she was practicing prenatal yoga in her home when she felt a sudden pain.
At first I thought the article would get into bashing dangerous yoga positions, but that would have been burying the lede.
"It felt like someone rammed a pitchfork up my butt, so I stopped," she writes. "It was an intense, sharp pain, but it passed."
"One night, I took a look down there, and it was like my insides were on the outside and they were coming out," she writes. "I knew I couldn't put this off any longer. I went to my doctor and said, 'My vagina is falling out of my body!'
"I was referred to a pelvic floor specialist. She took a look and said, 'Holy crap -- your vagina is falling out of your body, and it's dragging your bladder and your rectum along with it!'"
See, it seems like a joke because what certified "pelvic floor specialist" would ever be that explicit and so unprofessional sounding? Perhaps Mrs. Henry was exaggerating for comedic effect and making a mountain out of a pile of her bladder and rectum, but this apparently isn't a joke.
Vaginal prolapse is a very real problem that up to 30% of all women will experience during their lives, according to these freaks. There were a lot of other details involving blood and maxi pads that I would rather not talk about, it's not really my cup of tea. I don't have a vagina, nor did I ever have one that fell out, so this is all alien to me. If this had happened to me, the last thing on my mind would be to laugh about it, but I guess that just shows what incredibly courageous creatures women are, or at the very least, how psychotic this particular one is.
"Among my friends, I was always the stable Mable," she says. "'I eventually started taking anti-depressants to cope with the chronic stress and I became so emotionally depleted."
That's the line that made me think it was all a really disgusting joke. How ironic is it for someone nicknamed "Stable Mabel" to have their genitals in such a state of flux?
Is this really a joke though? Is Sphere.com like The Onion or something? Because if it is, they do a hell of a job! I will say though, even that ho on Larry King Live thinks the joke is inappropriate.
