Vulvodynia book in the works – author seeks interviews

I received this email today (below) from the National Vulvodynia Association (the term "vulvodynia" refers to vulvar pain). Apparently a woman is writing a book related to vulvodynia and is hoping to get in touch with women to learn more about their experiences. Here is the information:

Dear NVA Friend,
 
The NVA was contacted by a woman who is writing a book on vulvodynia and other vulvar pain disorders.  She is interested in including patient stories in the book.  If you are interested in sharing your history with her (can remain anonymous), please send an email to Stacie Vaughn at vpain_research@hotmail.com, summarizing the following:
 
-          when your symptoms began
-          description of your symptoms
-          summary of treatments you’ve tried and how effective they’ve been 

 
Sincerely,
 
Chris Veasley
NVA Associate Executive Director

    Thanks Dr. Debby for posting this and spreading awareness about vulvodynia! It’s so important for us to share our stories and support each other. Vulvodynia is still such a hidden, isolating condition – I get confused blank stares whenever I tell people I have it.

    Whatever we can all do to spread the word is great!!
