  • After my previous pill mishap, I still to this day hate pills. Unlike the regular medicine i took when I was younger pills don't go down so easily. Usually when that time of the month comes I feel like crap. My cramps seem to consume my whole body, which makes my body shake and produce cold sweat.Food seems to be hard to digest or even to swallow because of my intense nausea. SO the last time these symptoms came was a couple of weeks agp, the day before I had to move. My mom offered me an Alleve, before that i ate nothing but i did drink some orange juice. Its been a long time since when I threw up because of this thing woman get: PERIOD. Unfortunately for me this was one of those times my stomach could not toughen up and i threw up the pills, the orange juice and some acid from my stomach. The burn in your throat makes you want to cry.I remember the first time I got my period was at my mom religious graduation( Akan Priest) and in there tradition you can't when a girl is on that time of the month she cant touch anything(people,food) but she can touch small children who have not yet had there period. I was so pissed, I couldn't even hug my mother but one thing I loved about this moment was after the week was over when we were going home, my mom and I celebrated at a sonic we passed with Curly fries and a cool drink. I remember the first time i got a bag of sanitary napkins they were next to a fire and they burned plastic included, that was so funny but at the same time scary, I could have burnt myself if I kept holding on to this bag.Lol Period= A time of experience
