The Announcement

 “I got my period when I was 11 right before a family barbecue. I was terrified and my mom talked me thru it and helped me only to BETRAY me when we got to the barbecue and announce to everyone that I go my period. I was MORTIFIED. A traumatized preteen that had just gotten cursed by Aunt Flo for the rest of her life and then that personal information was publicly shared for all to know. I still haven’t forgiven her for this.” ~Abby, Female, USA
