nightchild01 Finally Getting Around to This26th-Jan-2006 03:25 pm (UTC)
Hi everyone,

I've been a member of the community for a while but I'm just now getting around to introducing myself.

My name is Katie. I am 18 years old, 19 in April. I live in Colorado, in the United States of America, I have lived here my whole life and I'm a 5th generation native of this state. I am bisexual but I'm not "out" to many people I actually know -- though anyone who's likely to read this probably knows.

I ran across this community because my friend catnip_martini linked me to it once, I was hooked right away. I never really felt shame about my vagina, though periods were very embarassing the first few years I had them. I started developing at a very young age and my mother never tried to cover it up, but I don't remember her ever actually sitting me down and telling me what was happening to me. My mother never promoted bad body-image to me and she was always very open about everything; she wouldn't cover it when she had her period, she showered with me and my sister until we reached double digets. Because of this I knew what a period was before I started mine but I still freaked when I started my first one -- I was ten, and I ended up crying on my mom for an hour.

My mother died of a massive heart attack a month before I turned 12. This led to many confusion emotional issues and after several years, the discovery that I have bipolar disorder.

I love to read and I research everything that strikes my interst.

Thank you, VP!

princess_kessie Who am I? (long intro)27th-Jan-2006 02:59 am (UTC)
Thirty-five, happily married for almost 7 years, I had a hysterectomy due to fibroids, endometriosis and PCOS in October 1998 (at 28 and 1 month). I have never had any children, although it is still a deep and abiding dream to be a mother. I have experienced and survived some pretty horrendous stuff - both as a direct result of my menstrual madness and indirectly in relationships - including assaults and rapes - and I feel I have much to offer in the realms of "it happened to me, but I'm still standing" and so on. I still have my problems (the most obvious is a very limited libido), but thanks to VP and an incredibly caring and understanding husband, I am working through them day by day.

I found VP via a link on a post from a comment on my FList, and I have been lurking and commenting for some time. I try to post information that is helpful and informative, but sometimes I go off on a tangent and tend to ramble, and I know that people will not always agree with what I post - but c'est la vie, as they say! I always try not to take offense, and hope others do too.

I also have three darling feline furbabies, I live about 35 miles south of Perth, Western Australia (in the 'burbs!) about 5 minutes from the Indian Ocean.

Blessed be VaginaPagina!
queensugar Frappr Map Not Working?31st-Jan-2006 10:58 pm (UTC)
Just FYI, some of the Canadian cities won't work... it keeps telling me Winnipeg is not a valid city, even though it's right there on the map. I've tried various permutations (Winnipeg, MB or Winnipeg MB) and it still doesn't work. Sad. :(

I was insspired to join Vagina Pagina after performing in the Vagina Monologues and was all for the idea of a safe-space for women to talk about their vaginas.

Uhh... Hi.

I have so many questions to ask. I have so many different questions & concerns I want to know about, is this normal, does this mean anything... It's great that I have a supportive mother & sister, but sometimes I just can't ask them things. And I need to find a new doctor, because my current one doesn't give detailed answers - when he asks me if I have any questions at all!

I'm new, pick me! I'm 18 (omgsh, I'm legal! lol, I just had my birthday) and let me just say, my vagina and I have a very loving relationship.
I'm sexually active , although my sexual activity is sporadic (LDR).
This is an awesome site, I must say. I've not seen a site so carefully constructed. Brava!
