First Period stories

What's the story on everyone who wants to tell first period? I was 12 1/2 years old and had been babysitting ALL DAY at this place where they had a huge October Halloween pumpkin celebration where the bathroom line was way too long to use, but I had this awful pain, (also known as cramps and I wondered on the almost hour drive home what on earth was going on!) I went to Ps- What's the story on everyone who wants to tell first period? I was 12 1/2 and had been babysitting ALL DAY at this place where the bathroom line was way too long to use, but I had this awful pain, (also known as cramps and I wondered on the almost hour drive home what on earth was going on!) I went to the restroom and having an older sister I knew what this was. . . and I was LIVID. I went to my mom, who was on the telephone and said, no I think I demanded "GET OFF" as if I was dying. So I stomped back to the bathroom and showed why I was so angry. My mom laughed at my hostile tone a little was was great, my sister I heard teasing me (because I was the worst teasing about that kinda stuff) and I was given a HUGE pad. Now I was blessed, for the first two years, I had very light periods. Then at 14 all hell broke loose. It was then 7 days of cramps that made me pass out from pain, and the doctor gave me medicine. It was super heavy. I would have adored a cup. . . I think panty liners would have done it the first year or so, but if I had had a cup at 14 that would have been awesome. So there ya go. Anyone want to share? ;) Get this my granddmother didn't get her period until 18! My mom doesn't remember but said P.E. was hell, public showering with the teachers watching with only three days off for a period and hers was longer. Talk about a need for a cup. She got a doctors note after suffering with that a while. Boy.
PS-My typos are bad, I am using a tablet, forgive me.
