I've always tried to keep in mind that health is both physical and mental. In the past, I did a lot of destructive stuff to try and escape the pain of being raped. Now, I don't do that anymore. But the pain is still there.
I still screen everything. I try to trust my intuition. But pain is still there. Many times, you feel like you can't do anything. But you have to protect yourself.
More appointments, a screening test and an X=ray are coming up. Despite all that, we're trying to keep things as balanced as possible.
We just want to feel safe.
