I am SO committed to tennis, omg!

I forgot to mention this: halfway through tennis on Saturday morning, I suddenly got my period.

I did not have a sanitary pad with me and I was the only girl over the entire stretch of five courts lined side-by-side.

It was the first time since I started playing tennis that I got my period in the middle of my game.

I went to the toilet, rolled toilet paper into a thick wad, and used it as a makeshift pad. As a form of insurance, I stuffed another wad of toilet paper between my underwear and the compression shorts of my tennis skirt.

Then I resumed playing.

Of course, my movement was slightly restricted, but I continued playing anyway.

I love tennis.

And this is a gross story but it deserves to be shared.
