Hard Decisions

So, I'm planning to enter the Real Simple writing contest. The topic is the bravest thing you've ever done. Hands down, the bravest thing I've ever done is to get treatment for my vaginismus, persisting in the face of constant failure, complications, and even surgery. But while I know I can write an excellent essay on that topic, I know it's not a good match for Real Simple's audience. What to do?

So I'm doing it! I'm writing a great essay and submitting it. I'll be editing from my typical blunt writing style: no mention of labia or vaginas. But I'm not going to shy away from the problem. After all, it's just a contest!
