Is anybody here schizotypal?

I've noticed that those who are schiztypal to an extreme do not last very long here, the raging ranters and such. In psych nursing, I was attracted to them. I'm a history buff and our history related to how we as societies deal with radical thought, such as "The Earth is round", is replete with violent responses to people with alternative beliefs as though they are crazy. The vilification of people who do not agree with the powers that be and current set of subjective beliefs is a reality, a reality that some people legitimately freak out over and who legitimately flee true persecution. For example, after 9/11, a young man here on YA frantically posted over and over again websites and such related to "problems" with the 9/11 "story" and investigation. Answerers called him a lunatic. Yet, serious legitimate questions about that event, the same ones that he posted about, have come to more public awareness. But, the ranter with an agenda rather than a conspiracy, is just a hoodlum with a fist and a big mouth.

Schizophrenia and paranoia are mental diseases with organic etiologies. Their complex constructs of the bits and pieces of reality sound exactly like the legitimate exposer of actual conspiracies. Mental hospitals have been used for centuries and continue to be used to imprison and neutralize dangerous thought that threatens a family, a community, a religion, a politic or a tidy belief system. Read about how Sir Rife was made to be a "crazy" person in less than two weeks when the powers that be decided to take his microscope away from him and the general public. Dig deeper on that story and be prepared to be shocked at who was behind that.

I was amazed, when I opened my mind up a little, how many people in mental hospitals are not crazy at all. What they figured out or learned about, though, is enough to make anyone go crazy or act crazy by just realizing that it's the truth. I became a conspiracy theory buff after that psych nursing experience, putting my research abilities to test. I don't live tucked safely away in the mountains most of the time these days for merely the scenery.

Can I be pregnant or might it come on soon?

Can I be pregnant or might it come on soon?

If your last period was October 24, you're not late yet for the month of November. You count the first day of menstruation as Day 1, so today would be Day 28. If you are a teenager, your period might be irregular. Besides pregnancy, stress can bring on irregular periods.

Your body is only fertile for one day, the day of ovulation. Unfortunately, sperm can live in your body for several days, so you have to avoid sex for at least 3 days before ovulation. 7 days would be safer. You ovulate 2 weeks before your period, so it's not the easiest thing to predict. For example, if you are having a 6-week period, you would avoid unprotected sex during Week 3 and the start of Week 4. You can have all the unprotected sex you want between the day of ovulation until your period: most of Week 4 and all of Week 5. To simplify things, I usually just think the last week before your period is really only the safe time to have unprotected sex. If your period is irregular, forget it!

If you take your temperature first thing in the morning daily and track your mucus, you may be able to predict your day of ovulation: There is a temperature rise, and mucus is clear and slippery on the day of ovulation. Mucus is white and tacky the days preceding ovulation, so avoid unprotected sex those days too. Dry and no mucus are safe days.

You can buy the Morning-After Pill over-the-counter and take it up to 5 days after unprotected sex:

Please go on the birth control pill. Guys seem to care more about their pleasure than worry about pregnancy and STDs. Is unprotected sex worth all this stress?

You can buy a pregnancy test from any drugstore, convenience store, or grocery store. They're definitely less than $20. Make your boyfriend buy it or buy condoms! That'll send a message to him.

If you don't want to buy a pregnancy test, another way is to visit your doctor or gynecologist. They can just look inside you to tell if you're pregnant and will give you a pregnancy test. Set up a routine check-up or pap smear then you'll know. You know what? Just go to your doctor to check if you're pregnant and get a prescription for birth control. Two birds with one stone!

Hope you're not pregnant. Hang in there.
