I talked to an 18-year-old girl who worried she was pregnant, and instead of getting a pregnancy test, she wanted an opinion from me (a stranger) to decide if she was pregnant.
She told me she had used a condom with her boyfriend three weeks ago but her period was late and was experiencing nausea and a range of other symptoms.
To be honest I don’t know for sure that any of them were white but all the conversations I had were very #whiteboyproblems.It wasn’t just college guys who struggled with opening up to their friends. He hadn’t seen a doctor despite the debilitating effect it was having on his life because he couldn’t afford the medical bills.This seemed almost absurd to me, given the very different health system here in Australia.She was religious and both her and her boyfriend wanted to wait until marriage but they kept having ‘slips’. I talked to a guy who was in his final year of high school.He had just been diagnosed with ADHD, along with a previous diagnosis of depression and anxiety.
