Yes, I'm happy but terrified at the same time.
I e-mailed you an important question that I didn't really want to post up here- I hope that's okay.

That's fine (though I do think it would have been okay here), and I got back to you.

Heather- you have a wonderful site and you're a remarkable being for providing this site to young ladies, such as myself.

I finally saw my doctor. She kicked my mother out for me [Smile] and she gave me a good talk about growing up, and having to deal with religion. I asked her for a blood test.
It was a negative- just as you expected. But it was relieving to finally see it from a lab result, y'know?
She even prescribed me provera and regular birth control.
I've gained about 3-4 pounds, so they're happy for me.

I just want to say thank you for all your patience, Heather. Despite the fact that my situation was ridiculous, you still helped me. Thank you so much.
Lately, I've been reading up/taking lessons on sexual health.
One counselor that I spoke to suggested that I work for Sex, Etc. and provide my experience for girls just like me- dealing with guilt in damaging ways (physically and emotionally). I don't know. But, I am keeping my options open.

Thank you, again. I can probably thank you for centuries. If I didn't have a place to confide it, or a person that's compassionate, and willing to help me-- I don't know what or where I'd be. Quite possibly in a worse place.

Keep up the amazing job.

Sincerely yours,
- Dreema.

Aw, Dreema, you just made me need tissues. Thank you for saying such wonderful things.

You're far more than welcome, and I'm glad the doctor's visit was so satisfying for you. It's great to hear you feeling so much better.

By the way? I'd be more than glad to talk with you about volunteering with us, too, if you'd like. My impression is you're a very kind-hearted person who also is very insightful and has a lot of good stuff to share as well as some important things to say. We'd be very lucky to have you. [Smile]

Oh my god. I would love to volunteer for this site. Please, tell me all that I can do to become a volunteer, and I would do it.
I've become so familiar with this site, and I can't think of a better place to offer whatever it is that I have to offer.

Wow. [Smile] Thank you.
