Client Corner: Meet Carly


“I remember the day as if I am living it now. I woke up and checked my email, and there it was, "Congratulations, Carly, you have been accepted into the ASU nursing program." The day I had waited for so long had finally come. Finally, I could begin to pursue my dream of being a nurse practitioner. Later that day, I stopped by the pharmacy to pick up a prescription. Out of the corner of my eye I caught a glimpse of the cutest little bear with a big “O” monogrammed on its stomach. Thinking to myself, "if I had a little girl, I would name her Olivia." The bear also made me realize I needed to refill my birth control. A baby was the last thing I needed with a rocky relationship and especially not during my schooling. I grabbed a cheap pregnancy test and took it back to my boyfriend’s house. I stared at the plus sign as tears rolled down my face.
