Even though this is late, I wanted to let you know that you're thought about frequently and I miss you. I haven't been around lately because things in my life have taken on a busy, chaotic turn. But I hope you got though this difficult time.
I have apparently acquired myself a significant other! He's wonderful -- warm, caring, tender, gentle, thoughtful... I will admit that he's not squeaky clean and doesn't come with a basket of roses... but what matters is what he is now. And I like ...
who he is now.

Last night, I did something that could be life-changing-ly irresponsible. He and I spent the night together. We had unprotected sex. And once the deed is done, why the hell not do it again and again and again? It's a vulnerable time of the month for me and I've gone looking for the morning-after pill and it's $50. I don't have that kind of money. There is no Planned Parenthood in my area that may be able to help. The morning-after pill is only effective for 72 hours and the clock is ticking. I don't know what to do. Today I made sure that it was not unprotected and I've already talked to my PCP about getting an IUD but she's had to refer me out to a gynecologist because the implantation is quite specialized. That's not until September 9.
I am here but I must admit that I am replying to this reluctantly. It's still very dangerous to be here... many landmines and missiles and bullets flying... I feel as if I have walked into the middle of an active war going on and I have no gear and no place to take shelter. As such, it makes sense to go into full retreat for the sake of maintaining my safety and peace of mind.
I think we all have our opinions but I have not shared mine for the sake of not adding fuel to the fire, not to mention that it's none of my business. I would think that it's prudent for people to follow that same general policy.View Thread
