One morning I woke up. I couldn't move. I could not feel anything. My head hurt. That was the only sensation I felt, until... I tried to move. The pain! It was beyond namable. The pain started in my stomach then shot through my back and added to the throbbing in my hammering head. When the initial shock and pain subdued to a more manageable stabbing throb, I tried to holler but I was left breathless, and I wasn't even able to cry out when the jolt of pain hit me. I laid there, waiting. I couldn't move, I didn't want to risk that pain again. After what seemed like hours of strained breath, a hammering head, and the fear of moving; my mom came in.My mom's first reaction, "Oh get up, you're going to school." She came in a second time mad, that I hadn't moved. I was close to tears, I couldn't say anything more than a moan and a faint whisper and on top of that I was in such pain that I couldn't even tell my mother! When my mom realized I was in pain, she tried to set me up. With what seemed like hours, I accomplished standing but I was bent almost completely over, nauseated and light headed. After half the day my mom gets my into the truck and takes me to my chiropractor. He couldn't find anything wrong. Except I couldn't stand up straight and just breathing took a lot of effort. He tried several muscle relaxants and could get me to unfold just a little bit but only if I was on my side.The next place my mom took me to was the doctor. After a couple of examinations my mom and I were told that I was pregnant. My mom's jaw would have literally hit the floor if it wasn't attached so securely. Looking back her face was hilarious. Anyway, at the same time my mom started stuttering, I shouted "I'm still a virgin!" but, the only sound that came out was a hoarse whisper that resembled those words. Upon closer investigation, the doctors couldn't find a heartbeat or even bones, but they stuck with their thought that it was a baby and it was the size of a small watermelon and I was experiencing labor pains. With even further investigation, it was discovered that the "baby" was an overly large assist. The assist was classified as an ovarian assist and it engulfed my entire left ovary and squished almost all my organs together. Apparently, I was born with this assist and it grew over the years to its huge size and it was ready to burst. An assist, I was told, was a balloon type growth that filled with toxic chemicals and some other substances. I was also told that if it burst before it was fully out of me, I could die because the toxins would be quickly absorbed into my organs and blood stream. They prepped me for surgery for the next hours.First they had to get me drugged, they gave me pills to relax my muscles so I would be able to rest comfortably on the...
