I am a thirty-two-year-old woman and you would think that I would have learned my lesson the first time. I was twenty-two at the time and was in the military. Maybe it’s a once a century thing for me! I had a party at my first ever apartment and invited a bunch of friends. I ended up having unprotected sex with one of my friends. I am living proof it only takes one time to get pregnant. I had a horrible delivery experience. I was in labor for fifty-four hours. I wanted an epidural. I delivered my daughter at a naval hospital and had signed a waiver so if anything went wrong I couldn’t sue them. Needless to say I had an intern try and give me and epidural. He went into the wrong spot and I lost the spinal fluid surrounding my brain. I delivered my daughter without any pain medication and thought I was going to die! Literally after I heard her cry I thought I can die now.
Well I lived through it and after several months of horrible headaches, I was somewhat back to normal. I got on birth control and vowed to never let it happen again. Here I am now living in Alaska and loving the outdoors and the life I made for me and my daughter. It’s New Years Eve and I decided to go out with family and friends. I drank way too much and I took home a guy from the local bar. I didn’t have him wear a condom and I know he came in me. I’m very ashamed of my actions and scared to death that I could be pregnant again. I could have gone to the hospital and got the morning after pill but I am friends with almost all the nurses there … they were with me on New Years and didn’t know I brought him home. So here I am praying for my monthly visitor and hoping that I didn’t make another favorite mistake. (I know nothing about this man…other than his first name).
