Have you even heard of HSDD?: "Because of our society’s very longstanding hangups around women’s sexuality, this common condition isn’t known generally, doesn’t get talked about, and isn’t treated." (Design Mom)

Starting a new chapter is scary: "I’ve learned over the past few years that clean starts don’t exist. Blank slates are a myth. And looking forward without bringing some of the past with you is darn near impossible." (Design Sponge)
