Okay, well, my story in a nutshell. I was very in love with my bass player. I was 19, he was 34, which right there is already a problem. I didn’t realize it at the time, I was so shy and here was this cool older guy, and the relationship moved really fast because he was looking for fulfillment in his life and it became very co-dependent, and that happens when you’re young.
And it’s hard to really sum up, but yeah, it spiraled out of control and we were very in love, but I would say we lived together for two years and then he kicked me out and then it was really hard for me.
That’s when Alexa ended up taking the homeopathic pills that landed her in the hospital.
I wasn’t seeking therapy or any of that. I was crying a lot. I felt really depressed and it came to a head… I took some Traumeel, which is a homeopathic anti-inflammatory. I just wanted to kind of not think and fall asleep. I thought it was just going to knock me out, which is a really irresponsible silly thing to do. I was in a very emotional state, maybe being a bit of a drama queen too, which is to my own detriment.
I wound up going to the emergency room. It was this whole trauma. I felt terrible. It got misconstrued a lot in the press…
That must’ve been hard. Alexa also revealed that she contracted HPV (human papilloma virus, which is a very prevalent sexually transmitted disease) from her ex-boyfriend.
I had [HPV]. But I mean, a lot of people get it from my ex. I mean it was fine, you know. There are no side effects. You just go and get it taken care of.
Planned Parenthood told xoJane.com that because HPV is so widespread, it’s impossible to tell who transmitted HPV to whom. Jane also announced that Alexa Ray will be a contributor to xoJane.com. You can read the entire interview here.
