Sorry for inconvenience...

One thing about Garibay Soup is I lay it ALL out on the line. My frustrations, my faith, my love, my hate, my EVERYTHING! It's my place. I created this little world and it's the place I turn to and at time RAMBLE! Like I'm going to do right now.....

People arrive at my blog daily to read what I wrote on the {Mirena IUD} from a search engine. So when my 16 year old sister told me that she has decided to go on the Mirena IUD I about had a breakdown.... I looked at her and said there is no way you're doing that! I explained all of my history with it and figured I had gotten through her brain. Well, my step-mom (who is only 2 years 11 months older than me - yes, this is an ingredient to a dysfunctional family) called me today to tell me that my 16 year old sister wouldn't be making it into work. She's my little helper and has been calling in quite frequently lately. I asked why, and my wicked step-mother explained that she had just had the mirena put in and is in pain.

My heart I think stopped. What kind of a doctor would put a Mirena IUD in a young child? If this doctor had done his or her homework they would find that directly on the Mirena website it says that the Mirena IUD is for women who have had at least 1 child and only have 1 sexual partner. Hmmm... I can probably say that little miss 16 year old is not having just 1 sexual partner, because this girl changes boyfriends like she changes underwear - no I'm not saying she sleeps with them all, but come on! And last time I checked little miss 16 year old doesn't have a child.

So, I came running to Garibay Soup to ramble and hope that maybe somebody who is googling Mirena IUD reads that YOU SHOULD NOT ALLOW YOUR TEENAGER TO BE ON THIS!

I really wish that my sister Alyssa had better parents that would actually look into things that would effect her. My heart aches for her, because her mom has moved on with her small children and new husband and tossed her to {my father}, which him and my step-mom are what the redneck parenting jokes are based off of. Definitely people who should not have children. Poor girl.

So now what I need to do is take a deep breath, and just let this go. It is not my problem.... it is not my problem.... IT IS NOT MY PROBLEM. Can you tell, that I am making this my problem?

Hey Amanda! Sorry I haven't been by in such a long time - I wanted to pop in though and say hi and that I was thinking of you. By the way - great informational posts and I love that you are so willing to just lay it down on the line :-D

Wow, that is just stupid. I mean, if anything, if they didn't think she could remember to take a daily pill, at LEAST go for the depo shot. I mean, c'mon! With Mirena, she is at risk of an ectopic pregnancy, among other complications.

After both of us had it and we know that the hormone levels are out of control, youd think she would have listened. I hope she has our experience with it so she can learn.
