Doing my research.

“I advise parents to go out and do their own research with regards to this. No one is going to care any more about the child than the parents themselves. Make an informed decision. What I don’t like about it is the blackmailing that’s happening with the government. Don’t do that to people. That’s a dictatorship.”

Senator Hanson has urged parents to do their research regarding childhood immunisation and referred to the No Jab, No Pay policy as blackmail and the hallmark of a dictatorship.

My Contraceptive Pill Experience.

For many years, I took a pill every morning to prevent pregnancy. It took some time to find the right one for me. By that, I mean I had to find the type with the least objectionable side-effects.

In my quest for a suitable pill, I had some god-awful symptoms. Things like prolonged bleeding, which meant my usual period went for two weeks and happened every second fortnight. You can fucking keep that one. I’ve experienced ridiculous mood swings, anxiety, headaches, sore boobs, weight gain and, surprisingly, decreased interest in sex.
