So earlier today I had an appointment with the college nurse and she gave me the implant then and there, which wasn’t expected. I’m glad that I’ll be protected obviously, but I can’t help feeling bad for having it done behind my parents’ back.

They think that I’m too young for things of that nature (for reference I’m 16, 17 in March and I live in Britain so the legal age of consent is 16). So obviously I feel bad for kind of disobeying them but it is my own decision and I believe I’m ready and I can make my own decisions freely.

I know it isn’t anything too horrible, but I still can’t help feeling guilty about it.. especially since I’ve got to hide the bandage on my arm for a whole day now!
