This is a blog dare post, that I had to fall over laughing about. I hated my Junior High years, the 7th through the 9th grade. What was I nervous about? Being on my period. Oh, and wearing contact lenses.
I hated starting my period. The smell just drives me crazy and I was always worried everybody else could smell it too. I was afraid I would be teased. I was already being teased enough because I looked different than the other kids. I had to start carrying around a pocketbook to keep my hygiene products in. I was also afraid I was going to drop it and everything was going to roll out, scattering all over the floor. Further cause for laughter from the other kids.
Even now, I still hate being on my period. I hate it that other people might smell it. I am kinda over the display of hygiene products accidentally, but hey, it’s part of life. So is the smell, but it’s still gross.
I also hate it that I’m going to be 50 years old next month and I’m STILL having a period, heavy ones too. They were almost non-existent 8 years ago when I got pregnant, and after my daughter was born, I was back to having them just as heavy and as awful as I did when I was in Junior High.
I am thankful though. It doesn’t look like I’m going to be hitting menopause anytime soon. HAH!
And I still can’t say “menstruation” to this day.
