Self Portrait

56 Weeks (2016)

Sometimes in your late 20s you fall in love, get married, and have a baby. Sometimes you fall in love, discover you have an ectopic pregnancy despite getting a $700 IUD, get relentless BV because of said IUD or maybe because your bodies aren't compatible, take an insane amount of antibiotics to try to get rid of the BV because youre still naive enough to listen to doctors, end up destroying your gut flora because antibiotics shouldnt be over-prescribed this much, become increasingly moody, get dumped, then spend the following year constipated, bloated, and trying to figure out your own body.
