Events Today Gave my speech to some really intrigued nursing students Then went to get my done and my hairdresser told me her niece AND friend's daughter are currently having very serious issues due to birth control So I had the pre warning and post warning Thank you God for letting me stick around to do the pre warning but this post crap sucks
Thinking outside the box. My nose is running really bad (probably allergies), and since I can't use my hands great its been hours of can you wipe my nose. I got frustrated asking and finally told the nurse put a towel on my chest so I can ;put my head down and wipe my own nose. Lesson for all, think outside the box!
I bought some really cute wedding shoes last night for my friend's wedding next month! Black and white pumps with a 3 inch heel For the longest time after I got in the wheelchair I just assumed that it was not appropriate for me to dress cute or "sexy". But now and for the past like year I've seen some shows and videos of women in wheelchairs that dress cute and it has shown me that it's okay for me to bring back my sex appeal and dress cute
School started back last week. I have English and Math. OMG it has been so many years since I've had Math. You can put your finger up to slowly follow the problem, where I'm learning to remind myself to read everything more carefully. It's just another thing I have to get used to. The English is on campus while the Math is online. I don't think the students realize yet they can actually talk to me lol
Hi. How are you? My name is Jessica Davenport. I feel that young girls either are misinformed or overlook the dangers of blood clots, strokes and death. I know when I started birth control at 16 I had no clue about the dangers. And had a huge curveball thrown at me at 19 when I had a massive brain stem stroke from birth control. Who knew something so little could cause something like this? I am 31 and my life is completely different from 19. As much as I hate what happened to me and my new normal every day, I wouldn't change it! I mean seriously who would give up their fabulous handicap parking? Lol. I still completely agree with the use of birth control but you need to know the dangers before starting the medication. Over 3000 women in the United States have died from strokes or embolisms due to birth control and it's my mission to stop it! And just recently I read about a 17 year old girl that died from this. 17! That could have been your friend! Please help me
Back from my trip. Burnt and exhausted! But it was fun! My friend Autumn came the first 3 days and brought her son the second night. One of the funniest stories happened the first eat drink night. We got to talking about dogs. And we were telling Autumn about this horrible dog named Sam we used to have a few months. So Autumn asks " so what happened to him? " and my mom says " well " then my brother chimes in " we took him back to his family " my mom and I immediately start laughing hysterically while my dad looks down trying not to laugh. My mom looks at me and whispers " I can't believe he bought it all these years ". Then my brother gets mad " what?! You lied to me for 15 years! What happened to him? " she then stops laughing and says " I took him to the pound "
I go on my family's beach trip in 2 weeks from today! Mom, Dad, my brother Blake, his friend, my friend (some days of that week)and me. A whole week at the beach. So excited!!!! Plus it's been like 7 years since I've seen my Dad
Watching this makes me cry. When my stroke happened I had some near death experiences, you may or may not believe me but it happened. I cry because they explain better than me why I'm so passionate about birth control education
Things are going great here lately! Got approved to upgrade the texture of my food, get to be evaluated by a driving school to drive an actual vehicle and Friday I have been invited to participate in a meeting concerning the Community's Advising Counsel!!! I am like peeing myself with excitement about everything
I think it's funny when people get into deep conversations about birth control and get quiet when i stroll into the room. Lol. Hello I'm going to school to be a birth control counselor! I appreciate your concern for me but isn't it kind of obvious with my book, blog and many speeches it is not an uncomfortable subject for me
It really was not that bad. Just felt like stinging and some pressure mostly. I definitely did feel the numbing needles though lol. That medicine was the stinging. But the numbing is wearing off. So they have been putting ice on it and it feels really really really good. They had me on my stomach with face in like this half pillow, so like every question they asked me I could either shake no or lift my head and look up for yes. They started to give me Valuum but my IV fell out and they could not find a vein. So they asked me to see if i could do without
I have not told you guys but for like the past year (really probably since my tumble) I have had on and off back pain. Sitting is ok, but laying flat is tolerable to excruciating! Sometimes I jump because the intense pain startles me.It turns out I have some spurs, compression, a bulged disc and some other things. Friday I have to get an epidural steroid injection.The videos don't look appalling and actually they look pretty painful! I am hoping my high pain tolerance will kick in and the shots won't be very bad. Let's hope. Getting on the table is almost as scary as the shots. They have to use the lift to get me onto a stretcher then roll me onto my stomach onto the table and then lay there about 20 minutes while they do the shots. They say you can't move during it. What if I accidentally jerk or need something during the procedure?
Anybody interested in helpn me spread the knowledge and education of birth control? Paste this on your and some friends walls, Please! Hi. How are you? My name is Jessica Davenport.

Learned to accomplish something new!! Tonight at dinner I was feeding myself and they usually have to scoop the food for me and I bring it to my mouth. Well tonight I did the scooping and everything myself!
Why are people so mean to each other? Why? Recently a girl in a high school around here was killed by her classmates over a boy., People say mean things about me all the time. Do you have like a sick pleasure in degrading people? I just can't stop thinking "How can people be so full of hate?"
Im so excited this is the last week! I think because i have worked so hard and been so stressed this past year makes this summer break so exciting for me!I honestly feel like crying I got through it, it has been really hard for me. Going back after a long break and with a "new" disability made it 3x as hard and it's almost done
Guess what i just did! My Religion book for school was only available in paperback ( instead of my usual ebook ) and i have to write a paper this so they put the book in front of me and i get them to flip the page. Well just now nobody was near me to flip it. So i figured out how to flip it myself! It may be little to you but it is huge to me!
I am still really iffy about it Women can take blood thinners, hormones without higher blood clot, bleeding risk, study shows : Women on blood thinners can take estrogen-containing contraception or hormone replacement therapy without an increased risk of blood clots or uterine bleeding, new research shows for the first time.
Well my speech went really good today! I think they really listened to my heed.I fought back the tears because they were in high school and I felt like grabbing them and screaming "I was just like you except I didn't have this blessing of knowledge
