My friend recently wanted me to quit smoking, so he got me a ecigarette so it is less harmful. I now use it more than i usually smoke because i can use it in the house. Before i had to go outside to have a smoke, now i can read a book or watch tv with it right in front of me and avoid the hassle of going outside. Because of the convenience, i use it fairly regularly in side.

I got my bartholomin's cyst about 6 years ago. It seems to swell when my immune system is fighting a bug. I have bronchitis right now and it seems my cyst has doubled in size. I have taken birth control pills from age 19 to 32 and again from 34-37 but not just now. I have also taken a few years of lithium medication for bi-polar from age 21-23 or so. Now I am taking allergy meds and some kind of antibiotics. I live in Japan. Sorry I don't readily know the names of the drugs I am taking.
