How could I be pregnant again? After
Johnny was born, I asked the doctor to give
me something reliable. Six kids are enough!
Besides, last time I was pregnant, my
husband left me. I was so scared. How
would we all manage by ourselves? But,
thank God, when little Johnny was six
weeks old, he came back. Now we're just
getting back on our feet. The doctor
says the IUD is still there and I'm
pregnant, too. How can this be? What
if this time he leaves for good?

Wow, it was hard getting the loans
all together for law school' But Gary
and I did it! Hard work will solve
anything! We can breathe easy now.
Studying will be a cinch, after the work
it took borrowing the money. Funny, my
period hasn't come on for a while now,
not sure how long. Guess that's just
because of all this pressure I've been
under. Glad that's all behind me! But
my period.......it couldn't bei no, I'm
sure it's not, but what if.....,? What
would we do? Give up school? We want
children, but later, not now. What
could we give them now?

Donna wants me to come out and play.
She's got some new comic books, too. But
I told her I don't feel good, and I don't,
Sort of sick to my stomach everyday. Just
don't feel like doing anything. And I've
got a secret, too. Daddy's been getting
in bed with me lately while momma's at
work. He keeps telling me it's o,k.
Nothing bad could happen to a little kid
like me; my dad wouldn't let it. I wonder
why he told me not to say anything to

I'm so excited! Dana, the last child,
is finally enrolled in college. It's
been so hard getting the money together with
four kids to look after. But, now that my
husband and I both work, our dreams for the
children are coming true. One thing
bothering me, tho, is my period. I haven't
had one in a while. It's probably menopause
coming on. But what if it's not? I won't
even think about it! What would we do? A
baby at this age? And the children's
education? Do you suppose it's just

After the rape, I just wanted to forget
it! The police wanted me to come and look
at their pictures of crooks, but I told them
I didn't want to have anything to do with it!
The nightmares are bad enough, without any-
thing else. I wonder if it's normal not to
get your period after something like that?
It's been 8 weeks now and....I suppose I
should ask a doctor. You don't think; no,
it COULDN'T be,......my God, I'd kill myself!
