Michelle King Robson has combined a successful track record as a business woman and entrepreneur with nearly two decades of civic and community leadership to lead what is today one of the fastest-growing social health companies in the world, focused on her personal passion for improving women’s health. Michelle says, “At 42, I was told I needed a complete hysterectomy, which I got without question. Soon afterwards, my quality of life just tanked. I became a different person. I didn’t like myself. I had no energy. I was seriously depressed and even contemplated taking my own life. After a year that included 12 different doctors and nine different medications, I wasn’t getting any better. This made me all the more depressed.
Then a good friend sent me a book entitled “Screaming to be Heard,” by Dr. Elizabeth Lee Vliet. It was about how women suffer silently, how we hide our pain and let it fester inside us. Luckily, she lived near me and I was able to meet with her. She immediately started weaning me off of my medications and put me on Estrogel and Magnesium, and after just a few days I started feeling better.
But as I started to get better, I started to get angry. I thought, if I was in so much pain for so long, even with the best medical attention in the world, what are other women going through? That is why I started EmpowHer.com, the resource I wish I had when I was sick. This site provides women with exceptional medical resources as well as a community to share our individual stories so women can stop suffering in silence.
