Sucks to be me

Tonsillitis - used to it, had it 2 or 3 times a year since Dr took out adenoids but not tonsils.  Infected sinus passages - big time suckage - feels like my head is going to explode, and it's a week later and I still feel like death warmed up.  Whinge over.

I sometimes wonder how I would cope as a teenager today, and marvel at Jake's ability to bounce back.  Latest crisis - J heads off to mate's place for pleasant evening only to end up in middle of drug experimentation (not him, thankfully).  One of his best mates (A) has a bad LSD trip, and exhibits major psychotic behaviour, and Jake has to decide how to deal - ends up calling ambulance.  Regardless of the fact that it was the right thing to do, still left J reeling, worrying about the ramifications, beyond the physical/medical, to his friend.  Luckily A and his brother both thanked J for his actions, and A has sworn off drugs.  Proud of J though, tough call to make, and did it all himself.  Life lessons -- the hard way.

kassto - if you read this - enjoyed your Welcome to the Hellmouth review, just haven't had the energy to reply, looking forward to more.

Thanks for the perspective of your experience, I'm breathing less heavily already! We've already had many variants on 'the sex talk', including (my personal favorite) cooking oatmeal one morning this spring as we were camping and the Boy saying, completely out of the blue, 'what does oral sex feel like?'. Unfortunately, there was no 'period' type mistake there. Without oversharing (after all, I have no idea what it feels like for a boy), we had an interesting discussion over the campfire about safe sex and not rushing things and bisexuality and lots of other stuff, after which I shuddered for 3 weeks straight. It is funny though, the sex talk doesn't freak me out as much as the drug talk!

Yes, please friend me and I'll friend you back.
I can't even imagine having a discussion with Jake about oral sex - I'm freaking out just thinking about it. Have had various discussions with him, most recently safe sex when we gave him a packet of condoms (with the rider that it wasn't a "licence to thrill!!") after he said one of his friends was worried that his girlfriend might be pregnant because they had unprotected sex.

Was there anything in particular you wanted to know about high school - don't want to put anyone off with some of my less than positive experiences.

Can you tell that I have no life - surfing the net, bothering strangers with my thoughts, reading fanfiction - oh well a week and a half till uni resumes, then I'm back to being a student again.
