Meanwhile, my Saturday is taking a microbial turn. Including some of the s that I’ll lecture on internationally this week. Can’t wait to be reunited with part of my ❤️ in another country.

Rear interior braces on the LGT! Time to say “adios” to body roll. I may even add one more piece connecting the strut bar to the roof again.

• GG Impreza STI/Cusco strut brace

• Cusco V-Brace add on for the Impreza

• Cusco BRZ c-pillar brace using brackets from a Honda brace in the upper cargo area

• Beatrush BG5 center roof brace

Many people will say that this is ridiculous but my car has virtually no body roll now. And most of those comments come from Impreza or Forester owners. So here are some specs to maybe put into perspective as to why this helps on the Legacy wagons more than the others.

• Impreza (1st gen) wheel base is ~99" and length is ~172"

• Forester (1st gen) wheel base is ~99" and length is ~175"

• Legacy (2nd gen) wheel base ~103" and length is ~184"

So there you go the Legacy wagons have a similar wheel base while being +10" longer. Which is all just extra cargo space with huge windows with very little support.

How do I know these are actually working? I loosened up the braces just a bit then took it for a drive and could here the entire setup move around clanging together only when I took turns. Once all tightened back up, no more creaks and noise. It feels similar to a beefier sway bar, but also like I have almost total control of the rear end compared to before.


Rolling into Friday! !

What are the best options to look into when you think you might have an STI?

Your best option is to make an appointment with your primary care provider and request a three-panel STI test. That way they can be sure to test each area (oral, genital, and anal) for any STI prevalence. If you are uncomfortable with your primary care provider (PCP), just look up LGBTQ friendly doctors or any LGBTQ+ resource locations in order to find someone who you feel comfortable discussing your LGBTQ+ identity. I came from a rural place where my doctor insisted on only doing single panel tests, and where I didn’t feel comfortable discussing my LGBTQ+ identity, so it’s important to find a PCP that works with you and your needs.

Oh yeah, finally came across these OEM grab handle delete plugs! Lookin’ good!

Subaru PN 92021FC000NE is what you need after removing the grab/“oh $hit” handles. They fill the bolt holes and keep the headliner in place. Although these things ain’t gonna come out without breaking them. In case you were wondering why I took them out to begin with.

When I installed the Beatrush roof brace the rear grab handles had to go. I made some out of Sparco tow straps until now that mount to just one hole really only to fill those holes.

STD Awareness Month

April is STD Awareness Month; a time to raise awareness and take action to prevent, test for, and treat STDs. I can not fully empathize with those living with an STD on a daily basis since I do not currently have any. An std is a sexually transmitted disease. This means they are most often spread through intercourse. STDs used to be called venereal diseases and have come charging back across the nation. Since 2013, chlamydia, gonorrhea, and syphilis have all sharply increased with more than two million infections reported in 2017 alone. As STDs continue to surge, we face a climbing number of babies born with syphilis, an increasing risk of infertility and getting or giving HIV, and the looming threat of untreatable gonorrhea. Although I can not completely understand what it is like to live with an STI since I’m not speaking from personal experience, I do have sympathy for those impacted and have had several scares myself. Therefore, I can only imagine how scary it is. It is possible to have compassion for another’s experience but unless you’ve personally lived it, you can’t begin to comprehend the extent of the problem. STDs are infections that are passed from one person to another during vaginal, anal, and oral sex. They’re very common and lots of people who have them don’t have any symptoms. STDs can be dangerous, but the good news is getting tested is no big deal, and most are easily treated. Most STDs have 0 symptoms thereby testing is the only way to know for sure if you have one. So if you’ve had any type of sex, please get tested. Though infections are common and occur through sexual contact, many people who are diagnosed experience confusion and shame. “The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that nearly 20 million new infections occur every year. Many cases of gonorrhea, chlamydia and syphilis go undiagnosed, and other STDs, like the herpes simplex virus, aren’t routinely reported, according to the CDC.” The fact such diseases and infections are associated with sexual behavior makes many people anxious. “It’s hard to talk about sex and difficult to discuss STDs for what they are – common infections that can affect anyone who has sex.” STIs are very common and the majority of people who are sexually active will get one or more STI in their life; having an STI is not a reflection of the kind of person you are. You can still have relationships and sex; practicing safer sex can reduce the chance of passing to partners There are also medications that help reduce symptoms. STIs can be passed to a partner even when you don’t have any symptoms. Some STIs, such as herpes and genital warts, are passed by skin-to-skin contact. While condoms provide good protection, they don’t cover all areas. Barriers such as dental dams or female condoms can cover a larger area. One of the most common and dangerous myths about STIs is that most people think “it will never happen to me.” A lot of sexually active people think STDs only happen to certain types of people. Although it is true that some groups are considered to be more at risk than others, STIs can happen to anyone who is sexually active at any time. Openly discussing sexual health is not something we are taught to do, but it’s an important part of caring for ourselves and others. It’s important to break down the unnecessary stigma associated with STIs which causes increased rates of transmission and prevents people from getting treatment. Research shows that people who disclose their STI status to their partners have significantly more positive feelings about their sexual self-concept than those who don’t. Scarily, most people diagnosed with an STI keep it a secret. “According to a recent survey, 72% of infected people didn’t inform their partners.” This isn’t an issue if your STI was cured with medication and is in the past. But herpes and HPV are not technically curable, so it’s crucial to let a partner know if you’ve ever tested positive. While herpes typically doesn’t lead to bigger health issues, HPV might. Some types of HPV can cause genital warts, while others can lead to cancer of the cervix, head, neck, anus, and penis. Accepting your diagnosis is hard; telling a potential new partner might be one of the toughest conversations you ever have. There are alternatives to having regular sex if you or your partner has an STD: “If you feel you cannot wait during an active STD infection, I would strongly recommend to redefine ‘having sex’ as safer sexual behaviors, like manually stroking your partner’s genitals or exploring other fun sex play you might have put off when intercourse was available.” If you do want to have intercourse, try using a female condom in addition to using a male condom. Female condoms cover the area right around the genitals, which helps to reduce your risk of contracting an STD from your partner. It turns out there are different strains of the same STDs. This means if you choose to have sex with your partner who has the same STD as you, you can still catch a different strain of the same STD. Not only might you become co-infected with their strain, but you could prolong each others’ recovery by reinfection, even if the strains were similar. You should be especially informed of your and your partner’s strains if you both test positive for HIV. If you or your partner believe you’re experiencing symptoms of an STD, consult a doctor to confirm. From there, you should inform each other about your most up-to-date sexual health so you can both have a fulfilling sex life.

Hi! I want to get tested for STIs before I’m with a new sexual partner. Where are some places I can get it done? How much does it cost? And how do I ask them to test for literally everything, including stuff that’s often not tested for like herpes?

Usually, your doctor can order a blood test for you and do a physical exam as well. If you have bumps, sores, or a funky smell or discharge, seeing a doctor in person is very important!

The blood test location might be the office itself, or they may have you go to a specific blood test place, i.e. Quest Diagnostics. You usually need an order from a doctor to get a blood test, but you can also get blood tested at clinics, Planned Parenthood, etc. It depends on your area and insurance. If it’s done through your doctor’s office and insurance, it’ll be covered by insurance! If it’s out of pocket at a clinic, I still don’t think it’s expensive. Many cities have public health initiatives that offer free HIV testing.

You should get tested for a full panel, though, not just HIV. Yes, ask for herpes (HSV I and HSV II) to be included in your test. Good luck and props to you for being safe!– Mimi
