I'm an Athiest. I guess it influences me in that I'm all for self reliance and taking responsiblitiy for my actions in the here and now.
Also for me it's about working in co-operative communities and directly linked to my politics - eco-feminist with anarchic tendancies :shock: :lol:

I have seriously heavy periods that wipe me out and I am considering a hysterectomy (I'm 38 year old). I have to use tampons and pads and often have to change them after a few minutes (in the first few days - of about 2 weeks!)... could I use a MC or similar!? Far out, that's full on! Well just for...
