so traditional it is

i called all the clinics that medical mutual says that they covered on their site and they all said that the soonest appointment for an annual or even any sort of appointment is april.

i called planned parenthood, found out that not only do they take my insurance but that the copay is only $10 (for a normal visit, non-preventative annual), AND they had a spot open today in a few hours. 

i’ll be able to get checked out to make sure everything is good down there, i’ll be afforded options to help normalize my periods and period pain, and not have to wait months for an appointment.  the woman who made my appointment was so kind and helpful too.

stop trying to defund the only clinic that could help me with my pain. they’re providing help to millions in a safe, affordable way, and they’re able to help people a lot quicker than traditional clinics. i’m so incredibly happy that i can get myself checked out today instead of enduring this pain and discomfort for two more months. 

so far, i have a lot of love and appreciation for planned parenthood. don’t destroy something that has the potential for helping so many women. please.

I'm really pissed off about my baby shower.

Eriks family is very traditional and old school (he isn’t but the rest of them are) more than half of his fuckin family isn’t coming to the baby shower because we didn’t do paper invites in the fuckin mail. First of all, my mom doesn’t know ANY of my friends except like two, here where I live. She doesn’t know any of his family.. SHE IS THE ONE PLANNING ALL OF THIS. Second of all we wanted to cut cost where we could (the stamps and paper invites) because of the amount of people being invited ..so my mom and I decided it would be easiest to make Facebook invites for the baby shower, also because I’m registered on amazon and it’s easier to just click the link. So because it wasn’t done the “traditional” way .. They Aren’t coming. Like wtf. I get it, old fashioned.. That’s cool. But people should also take shit into consideration and conform to things that are not done traditionally because of certain circumstances. Rude. Really fuckin rude. Not only rude, but hurtful. Eriks upset, I’m pissed off because he’s upset.. Then his mom was like “baby showers were always meant for family anyways and then maybe a few friends” LOL okay well my mom and my grandmother are the only family alive women wise so if that was the case we should all just go out to lunch. TF.

Holy style inconsiscencies, Batman! I got stuck at at the station for an hour today without any drawing materials on me, so I nipped into WHSmiths to get myself a cheap-ass sketch pad and a mechanical pencil and hi-ho, Silver, away!
