I am quite young and I have had sex with quite the variety of people and never had a problem until recently. I have used the same condoms, switched brands and materials multiple times, had an allergy test, and tried new partners, new positions - everything! No matter who I have any kind of sex with these days my labia minora becomes swollen for days and it is so sore that it makes it hard to walk. I am aware this is normal around the time you have sex but cannot figure out with what causes this to last for days. Shouldn't it subside without Benadryl among other medical things?

This Memorial Day weekend, Eric and I went to see An Inconvenient Truth, the new movie about Global Warming. Al Gore has given this slide lecture over 1000 times around the world. He has developed into a very thoughtful and endearing man who is passionate about his subject. Watching him and listening to what he had to say made my heart ache that he wasn't in the White House where he rightfully belongs. He opens his lecture with the statement, "I used to be the next president of the United States." When the audience laughs, he dead pans, "I don't find that very funny!" More laughter.
