Yes, Birth Control Should Be Sold Over The Counter

In a surprising show of bipartisanship, Sen. Ted Cruz (R - TX) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D -NY) have suggested legislation that would finally make birth control pills available for purchase over the counter instead of requiring a prescription. I've been saying for years that women should have easier access to vital contraceptives without the… Continue reading Yes, Birth Control Should Be Sold Over The Counter

I Ordered My Birth Control On The Nurx App And It Was Awesome

A few days ago, I had a not-so-minor freakout when I discovered that my local doctor's office hadn't renewed my birth control prescription, despite my several requests, and I didn't have the time or money to make an office visit.

Trying To Work Out When You Despise Working Out

When I was between home office-based gigs, I took up a gig delivering restaurant orders for a couple months. It wasn't terrific money compared to the things I usually do, but it was better than not bringing in any money. As an added bonus, I got lots of exercise doing that kind of work. In… Continue reading Trying To Work Out When You Despise Working Out

I’ve Been Enduring Painful Medically Unnecessary Cramps For Years And It’s The Catholic Church’s Fault

I've been on hormonal birth control for 15 years and I successfully have zero kids. That's awesome, but I've always had a tough time with my periods. I don't go batshit crazy and try to literally kill people, but I get such bad cramps that I can barely function and I cry without even knowing… Continue reading I’ve Been Enduring Painful Medically Unnecessary Cramps For Years And It’s The Catholic Church’s Fault
