January 2, 2012 Update:
I hope all of you have a wonderful 2012! biggrin I don't know how often I will check into Gaia, due to other interests, including serious writing.
However, if any of you want to chat, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. smile I'm always up for a good discussion, even if it takes me a couple of days to respond.
I'm taking a break from Gaia.
If you want to contact me, feel free to email me at email@example.com, or leave a comment on my blog which is linked below.
For The Suffering:
-- If you are underaged, and believe that you or your partner is pregnant, please get tested. There are options besides abortion.
-- If you are under-aged and considering intercourse for the first time (or even the 1,000th time), please please protect yourself! Birth control, contraceptives, and even condoms are yours for the taking. Ask your local clinic for more info. Be aware that even with protection, pregnancy (along with the spread of STDs including HIV) is still possible.
-- If you are considering suicide or self-harm, please seek help! Even if you are under-aged! There are several numbers and websites dedicated to helping you, who want to encourage you. Life is a precious gift, and things won't always be so horrible, I promise.
You are loved.
You are wanted.
You are irreplaceable.
The Lady Expounds.
