    My period was the worst possible. I had originally thought it would be a great time to go my cabin just with my grandparents until the middle of the car ride. We got to the cabin and I was grouchy and sassy and craving salty pretzels and fruit all day and my grandparents were getting pissed, but then I was sitting in our favorite arm chair and I felt a splurge of something. I swear I thought I’d gotten a messy pants and I ran in a crouch to the bathroom and boom blood blood clots everywhere and I screamed LOUD!My grandpa tried coming in and then told grandma to take over.. She was shocked and I had to call my mom over her cell and finally I was stuck all weekend with going to a far away grocery store and at the cabin all weekend with just the grandparents. Fun right?! NOPE.
