I was 9....

Posted by: shannon on Fri Apr 27, 2007
I was 9 when I started mine, I was riding my bike when it happened, at first i thought id hurt myself, but soon realised what it was. I didnt tell my mum for years, I was too frightend as she made it out to be a disgusting thing and I thought id get into trouble. It was one of the worst times of my life, i had to hide it for so long and was really ashamed of it.
Ive got kids of my own - one is a girl, im determined to ensure my kids never have to go through what i did. Its a natural thing and part of growing up and nothing to be ashamed of. Its just a shame my mum never made me feel ok about it!!!
