First Period Experience
Where were you when your first period started? How old were you? Did you talk to your mom, friends? What was your initial reaction? Retrospectively, could it have been different or more positive experience, and, if so, how?

I was 13. I had a summer babysitting job. Two of the most terrible little boys on this earth! I have back issues due to an accident when I was really young so at first I mistook the cramps for back pain. The boys had built a fort out of couch cushions and when I climbed in they jumped on the fort and it all came down on me!! after I finally recovered I went to use the restroom and there it was! I knew I was due to start soon since most of the women in my family started around 13 but I freaked out and thought I was bleeding internally!! I called my mom at work and she rushed to check on me only to discover I had started my period.. She then proceeded to tell EVERYONE about it. It took me a few years to live down my over reaction.
