Stars That Bleed The Skies: Celebrating The First Period Day Ever
"I remember back in 2010, on January 23 when I woke up to the feeling of dizziness and bloating. It was around 5 in the morning and I seemed to connect the illness with the dinner I had a night before. I didn't know what was happening or how uncomfortable I was feeling while walking. The moment I walked into the washroom and slid down my pants, the very sight of so much blood made my body go numb; but I remember myself screaming at the top of my lungs, "Mumma, Mumma!!!". This is how it was. My first period. This is how it must have been for you. Your first period. This is how it always is. Our first period."
