I was in year 8 and was going to a special camp for an extra class I was taking. It was a 4-5 hour trip and I started getting stomach pains, but didn't know what it was. We stopped for lunch and I went to the toilet and there was blood all over my underwear! It was my first period and I had to grab toilet paper to help it not leak through. I was paranoid the whole time we were there. On the bus some of my friends started talking about how they were on their periods at the time,
It was really embarrassing.
I finally confessed and one of my best friends told me she would give me a pack of pads .
