I get really bad cramps. The week before and during my period. To the point where I throw up. I play soccer for my school. I honestly was was not in the mood to play. I hadn’t eaten because the thought of food made me sick. I was hot especially in the sun where the game was being played. I had played soccer last year and it was my first time ever playing so I didn’t get much playing time. Coach wanted to put me in as forward, a position I had only played once. I felt like I was going to throw up from my cramps but that was not going to stop me. My friend did not want me to play. She thought I would pass out or something. This was my chance to prove myself. The team we were playing were not that good but still a game is a game. I got the ball and ran. I had so much running through my head. I just kicked it with my left foot. It went in. My first goal ever. It did not just help the team to victory I had a victory myself. If I can get a goal while on my period than why can’t I do other things as well. Granted I threw up after and had to be subbed out, but it was the fact that I was able to do something I never thought I could do. That feeling was amazing.
