I got my period when I was 13 years old (I'm 14 now) and I still haven't told my mom or sisters. I feel really emberrassed about having it, and I'm not that close to any of my family members. My mom never talked to me about periods or anything like that and she treats me like I'm 5 (so does my dad). My parents were very rude to my sister when she got a boyfriend (that they knew about) at the age of 18. It's like they don't accept us growing up and always want us to sit on their laps and hug them. I thought to myself that I'll just not tell my mom about my period, because she would find out later anyways. And I knew I would never tell my dad. But yesterday the worst thing happened. I was with my dad and he was going to get a new passport. I asked if I could come in with him. I had my period (and still do now) and had some pads in my pocket. We went over too two men telling us to put everything we had in our pockets in a basket like thing. I stepped back as my dad put his stuff in it, and I was so scared. Then the man said "you too, miss" and I thought I was gonna die. I had three pads in my pocket and wrapping from another one. I put them in the basket but my dad didn't see at first. Then the man put the basket right beside my dad and he started to stare at it. Then all of a sudden he became very quiet as I put the pads in my pocket. That day was so awkward and it's like I can't look at him anymore. I just hope he wont tell anyone. I need help! Does anyone know what I can do to make this less awkward?? I feel so embarrassed and I just wish I had left the pads in my pocket!
