“I started following on you on Twitter; then I came across the website; you inspire me so much!”

- Pauline Ramirez, via  email

“My son was diagnosed with Non-Hodgekin’s Lymphoma cancer when he was five years old. It was in

stage 4, and he had 4 tumours. After almost a year of chemotherapy and constant stay in hospital with no

time home, he was declared in remission. I am very fortunate to have my son with me and, although the

chemo has left some potential issues in his future, he is now a bright, lovely, funny twelve year old.

Reading some of your articles on Hello Giggles reminded me to be grateful for him every day and to stop

caring so much about meaningless things. I adore your site and think your message is much needed –

there’s too much drivel coming at us about boob jobs and the like!”  

- Hayley, “Hell on Heels” reader

“I just wanted to say thank you & tell you how insightful your article was; I’ve had a problem with my

weight for the past few years, only staying between 41 and 45kgs, and have gone to numerous doctors – all

to no avail. They either tell me it’s perfectly fine, that I’m healthy and that I should just eat more. Although I

am anaemic, I try and make up for this by eating meat and vegetables containing a lot of iron. I’ve also had

my thyroid tested and it came back as clear. This past week, I went for a regular check-up and was told by

the nurse on duty that if I lose 2 more kgs, they would have to hospitalise me. Your article showed me that I

should probably get another opinion, as the doctor can also be wrong in some instances.”

- Zainab, “Hell on Heels” reader

“I have had the feelings & thoughts of “lost” womanhood for a long time…reading this has helped me to

feel “womanly” once again…thank you!”

- Lisa, Elephant Journal reader
