I’m tired of wasting energy on anti-maskers. I want to help people who need and want masks.

Compelling personal stories
told by the people living them. I'm no longer focusing my energies on trying to persuade people to wear face masks. I can't beat my head against a wall for another year. 

Hundreds of thousands of Americans have died. Through tears, their loved ones plead with the rest of us to protect each other. They hope their loss(es) will not be in vain if they can prevent other deaths.

Getting a hysterectomy in a world-class healthcare city like Pittsburgh should be easy. Trust me, it’s not.

Compelling personal stories
told by the people living them. When I learned that I would need a hysterectomy at age 47, I anticipated bumps in the road — but only of the medical sort. I didn’t foresee the ways in which institutional issues would complicate my recovery. I’m a lesbian in a 15-plus year relationship with another woman. We have no children by design.
