Pink Parcel Period Talk: Sorrel, Partner Relations Assistant

Wouldn’t it be easier if we were all more open about the perfectly normal bodily function we experience each month? We think so. Each week a member of our very own #PPSquad will be sharing her period stories with you. Read, comment, share your own. Every story is welcome here.

This week’s period talk is from Sorrel, our Partner Relations Assistant.

What’s your period craving?

My period is the only time I crave sweet food. I don’t care what it is but it must contain sugar, and lots of it! For the rest of the month I’m religiously savoury.

I know my period is coming when…

I can’t sleep at night. I feel really hot and generally restless. My boyfriend would tell you I also get really emotional and short tempered but I can’t agree…

Tell us about your first period…

My first period came when I was 14 and living with my dad. I remember having really mixed emotions, one half of me was excited and proud and the other half was embarrassed to tell my dad. In the end I called my Mum and asked her to tell him for me. As a whole I felt really chuffed that I was finally a ‘woman’.

My period cringe is (hey, we’ve all had them)…

My periods have never been reliable. On one occasion I was at a friends house with a mixed group of boys and girls, I sat myself on her bed and suddenly felt that familiar warm, wet feeling in my knickers (OMG kill me now). I slyly got up and to my horror (but not surprise) saw that I had leaked all over her bed. I was far too embarrassed to tell her in front of the boys so I placed a pillow over my puddle, made my excuses then sent her a very apologetic text on my way home.

Your favourite thing to do when you have your period is…

My favourite thing to do is relax! I put on some fresh bed sheets, take a nice long shower and slip into my cosiest and most un-sexy pjs. I then drink copious amounts of tea and watch True Romance (it’s my favourite movie and always cheers me up).
