I was such an anxious child. Nothing about becoming a woman and bleeding out of my vagina for a week, every month, for the next 30 years appealed to me. I had a case of OCD which included a prayer routine I recited every night. Along with many thanks for my family was the BEGGING to not get my period. Not even the man upstairs could stop it though.
I started my period. 7th grade. Was I the only one??? I felt like I was early to the game. Thankfully, my mom had sent me to summer camp a few months before with a huge pack of pads. This, admittedly, sent me into immediate embarrassment and a lot of "uhhh mommmm."
