You Decide 034: Lacy Salander – Trust Yourself, Remember Your Why And Never Give In To Fear
This woman. You guys.
Lacy Salander has covered the spectrum of emotion from the depths of despair to the summit of joy – and not just once – she’s bounced back and forth quite a few times.
At age 17 she was diagnosed with Mayer–Rokitansky–Küster–Hauser syndrome (MRKH), an incredibly rare disorder that results in being born without a uterus. Being 17 is hard enough, but processing a rare disorder and the fact that you will not bare children is something else.
This struggle left her feeling isolated and out of control, and to regain that control she developed eating disorders that claimed her joy though adulthood. Struggling with body dysmorphia, she was obsessed with the scale, weighing herself more than 20 times a day.
She grew into adulthood and despite the odds, overcame her eating disorders, only to be diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, where a whole new journey began.
Tune in to find out how she turned her lack of uterus into a fulfilling role as a mother, her eating disorders into a powerful health journey and her MS diagnosis into a journey of self-discovery and an ability to listen to her body, meet its demands and treat it with love.
This story is full of incredible insights, hope and joy – you don’t want to miss it.
