My First Period Experience
When my first period started it was a sizzling July and I was 11. I had read about this event that was destined to take place yet, I did not completely understand all of the details. How was I going to know that there wasn't something wrong with me instead? I panicked. I let it go for about two days before I came to my mom with my under wear stained and tears coming down my face. I had no idea that my mom would bounce up out of her chair & tell me to get dressed so we could go to the store. For what? I thought. Then, before I knew it I was in the feminine protection aile watching my mom thumb through brands. We went home. She stuck me in the bathroom with a box of tampons and shut the door. I yelled "Where does it go? How do I put it on? Is everyone going to see that I'm wearing it?" My mom yelled back "You'll figure it out. These things come with instructions." Needless to say, she was right. Later that evening she had left and come back with an ice cream cake that read "Happy Menstruation." I was embarassed until I grew up and realized that this was a small celebration of my woman-hood. My mom stood over the cake with a knife and said "It's filled with chocolate and it's going to make you feel better." She was right about that too. That chocolate was so much more delicious than it had ever been. In retrospect, I learned that women definitely love chocolate for a reason. In addition, I learned that women hold so much strength, thier design is so special, and although we go through more pain than a man could ever know, we are rewarded handsomely.
