Being promiscuous will catch up with you one way or the other; trust me. And usually, when it catches you, the hayride was not worth the basket of fun. To this day, I cannot explain when this attack on my body festered. I’m not even sure who I lost my virginity to. There were a few important things in my past that I’ve forgotten, and I wasn’t sure why. On my first pre-natal exam, my GYN doctor informed me that I had contracted a virus that would be fatal to my baby’s delivery. So for the safety of my child, I would be scheduled for a C-section. That meant cutting me open and subjected me to major surgery. I had never had major surgery before in my life. So, for months I was terrified of the what-ifs. I prayed that the condition would not hurt my baby and for this monster to go away.
