I had one of my ovaries removed in an emergency surgery (I had a non-cancerous growth that grew extremely fast and overtook the tissue) and I was so nervous for the recovery: would I be in pain? Would I go through surgical menopause? After a really brief adjustment period it was like nothing had ever happened. Your body knows exactly what to do in that situation- during my recovery, I felt my body returning to hormonal equilibrium as the rest of my reproductive organs adjusted to the change. It made me realize that I had spent all that time worrying when my body knew how to heal and recover all along!
I went to my cousin’s wedding a few years ago with my parents (I was 21). A good family friend of the bride’s family brought her son, who was a few years older than me. He spotted me early on in the evening and he wouldn’t leave me alone the entire night. I even told him to leave me alone and he wouldn’t. I made it blatantly obvious that I wasn’t interested in him (by saying I wasn’t interested), but he was still just the ultimate creep, placing his hand on my knee, rubbing my arms, etc. The kicker came as I was talking to another guest and HE CAME UP BEHIND ME AND WRAPPED HIS ARMS AROUND MY WAIST. Ugh, it was awful.
