I really hope what I'm about
to say doesn't come off as harsh, but I am a very blunt and honest person, so I apologize in advance if I tick anyone off. I understand that you have a scholarship that you don't want to lose, but your health should be your first priority. In your own blog you state that emotional stress is a HUGE trigger for flares and such....and it seems like school alone is enough to stress you out at this point, and ontop of that you are worried about
possibly being pregnant. Unfortunatly teachers can basically make their own rules for their classroom within reason, and that is just life -- and life isn't fair. I personally have never expected anyone to make me an exception and change their rules for me....to me that IS letting this disease beat me. You said that you are only taking this class and fighting it to show that this disease won't beat you....but you are litterally making yourself sick over this. You need to swallow your pride and take care of yourself. It kinda rubbed me the wrong way when you said you come from a liberal family so you made the choice to have sex and whatnot before marriage....thats perfectly fine in my book BUT when you have a disease that could kill you or your baby during pregancy how selfish of you at this point in your life to take that risk, you are in no position right now to raise a child, or even have one (when you are married and financially stable then ok). I understand that sex is a huge part in a relationship...I get that, so if you are going to have sex you should be using condoms, and at least one other form of birth control, ideally 3 forms of birth control. You have a long life ahead of you, and a truly hope everything works out, I admire you for taking on so much with school and a relationship and everything else, but please do not make yourself sick to prove points. There is only one you, take care of yourself.
Again I apologize if I came off rude, I know you didn't tell us your situation to be lectured, I'm basically the same age as you (22), so I can completely feel for you and your situation, and everything I wrote above is what I would want someone to say to me...or what I would say to myself if in your situation.
