If you know whether or not a person has an STD before you have sex with them, you can make a better decision about whether or not you still want have sex with them and about using condoms. Having unprotected sex increases your risk of contracting STDs like chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, HIV/AIDS, HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) and syphilis. Aside from abstinence, using condoms consistently and correctly is the best way to avoid contracting an STD. Condoms should hug the penis to avoid slippage during sexual intercourse and you should avoid using condoms that are ripped or torn. Avoid using oil-based lubricants like lotion or petroleum jelly that deteriorate latex, rending a condom useless. The trouble with having multiple sexual partners is that many STDs are asymptomatic, meaning they show no signs or symptoms. So you or your partner could have an STD and not even know it. This is why STDs are spread so easily and why STD testing is so important.
Are you someone who needs to make a debt reduction spreadsheet? If you are, the following situation might sound familiar to you. You started charging things on credit cards, and it was no problem paying it back. Possibly you were charging things that you really needed, or maybe the charges were things that you were simply buying for fun. The main thing is, you had it under control, you were making your payments on time, possibly even paying down your balances. Then, it started getting out of control. Possibly this started happening little by little. A late payment here and there. Interest rates rise, minimum payments go up. Or maybe something big happened. Your car broke down or you got sick. Whatever the circumstances, the result was the same. You have now officially lost control of your debt management, and you are searching for ways to get that control back. Its a horrible feeling, being in debt over your head, and it weighs on you and gnaws at you day and night, making it difficult to laugh, relax, or even sleep. In fact, it may have gotten so bad that youve stopped even opening the bills when they come, or even if you open them to see the minimum payment amounts, you have stopped keeping track of how much you actually owe! That path is the opposite of the one you want to be on! It will lead nowhere but further financial ruin. If you want to gain control of your debt load and start actually sleeping at night and enjoying life again, you need to sit down with all of your bills and make a debt reduction spreadsheet.
The key to keep the overwhelm from taking over is to break your goals into smaller and more manageable chunks. You do not need to make the $10,000 this month, you just need to make $4001 this month. I am pretty sure you can find something you can do over the next month to make $1 extra. Once you have done that then aim for $10 more, or $100 more a month. You take these large goals an break them into smaller manageable chunks, and let the small chunks build on each other until the big goal is achieved. Do something every day to move towards your goals Once you have the goals broken down into small more manageable chunks focus on one thing you can do each day to move yourself towards those goals. It does not have to be a giant step, it can be a simple small step. It doesnt have to be finding a second job, it could be finding a good newspaper with good job listings. Then the next day could be looking through it. The third day making some calls, etc.
