First Period Story

So I was super excited for my period and September 2018 after youth camp, I started binge watching period videos. I watched them until December and that was that. Then in March this year I got addicted again because I found discharge in my underwear. About a week later I got liners. Next month just before April holidays I started thinking about what circumstances I would be in when I started. Then I realised that it would probably start at an inconvenient time, aka when I was camping during Easter. I was twelve and a half when we left on Good Friday but I didn’t get it. I woke up the next day and I went to the bathroom I looked down at my liner and nothing but the discharge from yesterday was there. I wiped and there it was, my period, it was pink so I knew exactly what it was. I had enough supplies to make it through. But on the Monday a crisis came. My mum had left with my sister and I realised in shock that I had no pads left. I only had tampons! And they weren’t even the small ones, they were the regular, compact ones. I didn’t push it in far enough and sitting through lunch was torture. I pushed through while we packed the car and as soon as we had finished I ran to the bathroom. I saw with delight that they had refilled the paper towel. I took some, went into the stall and pulled out the tampon which kinda hurt as it had only been there for four hours. I made a diy emergency pad and I made it home. On Wednesday after I thought I had finished I was wearing a super thin liner during netball training. When we finished early I had to go home in my coaches car. I saw with horror that the liner was soaked in red blood. I turned it around and hoped for the best because there was no toilet paper. I have a male coach and as such did not want to stain his car even though I knew he has two daughters that already had it. I made it home and I didn’t stain his car. I stained only four items of clothing that period. Three pairs of underwear and one pair of shorts.

Only One Problem: I Still had a Crush

I started at a new school. Just so you know, I had a crush on a boy at my old school. I sat in the class and could not stop worrying. I had a crush on like 10 OF THE BOYS!! Then once I got over most of them, I went on a date with my original crush. Only one problem: I still had a crush. And it’s one of those crushes you can’t control, like how you don’t want to like them but you don’t have a choice! I needed advice. I asked all my friends. They all just said ‘don’t like him then!’ But I am NOT IN CONTROL of my HORMONES and I only got over him when I saw my date again after 2 MONTHS!

There for Each Other

So… this isn’t exactly my story but… So one day my and my BFFs were just hanging out, talking, being weird and stuff when My friend ‘lulu’ asked me “who do you think will get their period first?” I was like oh I dunno. So then she asks my to come to the toilet with her and she was like ” Georgia, don’t tell anyone but… “I got my period:(“. I was super exited for her and we talked about how to tell her dad (parents are divorced). If she needed supplies and a whole load of other stuff. And to this day I support her, and when the time comes I know she will support me. So please girls, don’t tease each other, don’t gossip about it, don’t tell others if they’ve asked you not to, give out extra supplies like candy, because we ALL get periods. It’s normal. So, GIRLS support GIRLS!!!

Undies Be Gone!

The other day my parents made me stay home while they went to work because we had an electrician coming over to fix our air con. It was HOT. I’m talking a serious sweat-fest. Mix this with bad period cramps, I was not in the best of moods. When the electrician came over, I just sat at the kitchen bench and did some homework for a bit. Ugh, unsure what’s worse – cramps or maths?? Anyway, out of the corner of my eye, I see our puppy, Nala, playing with something in the lounge room IT WAS MY UNDERWEAR FROM THE LAUNDRY BASKET!! To make matters worse, they were my period undies. Disaster! I started chasing her around trying to get them quickly and the electrician was like ‘what’s she got!’ so he started trying to help me retrieve the period undies. Oh MY god. I managed to corner her, GRAB the underwear and quickly scrunch them up. So embarrassing. Let’s just say I’m NEVER leaving that laundry door open again.

This Isn’t that Bad but…

I’m sure this has happened to some other people (maybe in different situations). So I’m a pretty socially awkward person, and my family and I really like to go skiing. So one time (and probably a few other times), I was going up to the chairlift and the guy did that thing where they grab hold of the chair so it doesn’t bowl you over, and he said “have a nice ride” and I said “you too” 😂🤣😌 Side story!!! One time my family and I were trying to get on to the lift but we weren’t sure who was going where and with whom (cause it didn’t fit all of us at once). And then my mom started just going and then she told me to come. So I freaked out and went, but I was a little late (not drastically I still made it pretty well) and the chairlift operator slowed down the lift, looked at me and said “that’s not how we do things here! Do you need assistance?” There was I sign further back that said inexperienced minors should ask for assistance, but I’ve been skiing for 10 years. Then he pointed to the Stop line and said that my skis weren’t far enough on it (they were) he proceeded to do this for the rest of the time until it was the end of his shift then the next guy was really nice.

Embarrassing! 😊

I had really bad period pain and felt extremely faint, more like I was gonna faint! I was at the mall and my vision was really blurry and I was going to vomit 🤮. So my mum said “You know what just lie down here right here” So I lay down right in the middle of the mall!!! Whilst my mum went to get a wheelchair! Apparently the shops owns wheelchairs for emergencies. So a man that worked for the for the mall wheeled me to the car 🚘. Everyone stared like crazy!
