Ruth Part 2: "I Let Go of Fear"

Ruth Part 2: "I Let Go of Fear"

In July 2016 things came crashing down.  After another PB half marathon and a bit of work stress, I was feeling unusually tired.  In hindsight that was a big warning sign that I should not have ignored.  During my long run the next weekend I felt a pain in my lower back/glute.  We put it down to tight muscle and tried to ignore it.

Ruth: "I Thought I Was Doing Everything Right"

My name’s Ruth and I’m a recovering HAer.  I have just had my third natural period, after three and a half years with no cycle.  My story isn’t that special, and my journey has not been a simple one – there are so many interwoven layers that I honestly don’t know where to start, and to tell you everything would need a whole novel.  What I will tell you though is that I am a much better, stronger, balanced person because of it (well, I’m getting there anyway).
