Traveling with Fibroids While Plus Size

Since I was diagnosed with fibroids, it has helped me mentally to know that my body is not weird, and to prepare myself during the dreaded menstrual cycle. Going to work, visiting friends, or going on vacation with family can be a real hassle. Traveling with fibroids can be the worst. There’s more to pack that takes up space in your purse or suitcase – extra clothes, panties, tampons, and maxi-pads! And God forbid, don’t pack anything white!

It’s 5 am in the morning, and I’ve arrived at O’Hare International Airport, the third largest airport in America, and the fifth largest in the world. Where could I possibly be traveling this early in the morning? Vegas baby! I’ve been there several times before, but the last time I was in Vegas was over 11 years ago, and it was a seven day family experience with my husband and teen daughters.
