I am sure that you notice that the words hysteria and hysterectomy have the same basic root: hister. That is because the Greeks believed that a woman’s uterus would come lose and meander through her body, landing on her brain making her crazy. (a little something I picked up in a Women in Church History seminar class)
This is what I am thinking of as I leave to go to the hospital to be liberated of my uterus. This isn’t a big deal because I was done with it anyway but it does mean I won’t be posting for a few days.
See you when I get back!
