Late starter

Posted by: leeny on Tue Feb 27, 2007
I was at school in 7th grade and I was 13 years old. I was extremely relieved that it came because I was 1 month and half away from turning 14 and I knew that I was kind of a "late" starter. I had been waiting for it to happen since the 5th grade. I was behind because I was diagnosed with Type I diabetes when I was 12 years old. This caused me to lose 20 lbs in a 2 week time and it set my puberty back quite a bit. It took a while to regain the weight after diagnoses so needless to say I was embarrased to be the just about the only girl in my peer group to not have her period. All in all it was a positive experience because I finally felt like a woman and included with my peers.
