Since April is GYT month, I have been talking to some friends and informing others to go get their selves tested, but I’ve noticed that they don’t really care. They either say, “I’m safe, I don’t catch STD’S, it’ll never happen to me…” or they just laugh at me and say no or call me “mom”. I don’t get it.

If only teens actually realized the importance of getting tested and being safe now, it would make such a big difference in the U.S being known as one of the top countries with the highest rate of STD’S.

Just because people are laughing at my face and calling me mom will not stop me from informing others, passing out condoms, and offering my help. Getting at least one person to go get tested will be an accomplishment to me.
