Another glowing review for ParaGaurd!
I decided that after twelve years of pills, shots and rings I wanted to take a break from hormones for a while- but I'm also lazy and like to have sex.
I did want to get permanently sterilized, but my state has a reproductive health program for low-income women that is my only way to affording pap smears and if I got my tubes tied I wouldn't be eligible for it anymore. So hey, this is the next best thing!
The insertion hurt pretty bad, I won't lie, but it was quick. I was pretty crampy for a few days after that, but nothing a hot water bottle, a vicodin, and curling up to watch movies didn't fix. My periods are heavier, but they were very light to begin with so they're perfectly manageable even now.
And it was all free, thanks to Planned Parenthood and the aforementioned state program!
So if you can't afford one, move to Washington! :P
When it said the beautiful but nice blonde girl had ten outfits with the tags still on, the first thing I thought was "Duh, because she's going to return them to the store when she's done!"
I've heard people do that.
@All Mimsy And all of us over here on the west (the best! Holla!) side of the state really feel for ya guys. :P
I don't understand you people.
Mani/pedis? Massages? Waxing?
How do you have time to fit these in, what with all the three-hour long panic attacks and crying fits and trying to eat the bare minimum of crackers so you won't have to poop on the plane?
Yeah... I'm bad at flying.
That said, Ivar's at SeaTac is pretty damn good.
We were taught the proper names for our bodies early on, and so in turn has been my sister's three year old daughter.
They went swimming recently and after the basic water-safety instruction, she was running around with her hands over her chest.
"What are you doing?"
"I'm holding my breasts so I can put my face under the water!"
To a three year old, breath = breasts.
So damn adorable.
@gfrancie YES! I took that Accent test and scored Inland North, even though I'm born and raised in the Skagit Valley. Lotsa Scandahoovian influence, donacha know!
@punkahontas I got Inland North, but I've lived in the Pacific NOrthwest all my 26 years.
On the other hand, I live in a small farming valley that my ancestors and other Scandinavian immigrants settled 150 years ago.
My boyfriend (who was raised in Sacramento) says I sound like Sarah Palin or someone from Fargo.
Well I say Uff Da! He's just crazy, doncha know! Ya sure ya betcha!
@lue I read somewhere there are small communities of people in eastern Oregon that have retained a fairly thick Southern accent over the years. Maybe you're distantly connected to them? :P
Interesting, but why do I feel like I just watched a commercial?
