My niece, who is 12, came over to stay at my boyfriend and I’s apartment for about a month over the summer.
One morning, she came downstairs, looking tired and stressed.
“Aunty Laurie, I’m bloated again. My jeans hurt.”
I looked over at her. Her stomach was swollen, and she couldn’t button her jeans. She was almost on the verge of tears. Later on, I spoke to my sister (Her mom) who told me that she’s been going through PMS for the past year.
Am I weird for being shocked at this? I didn’t get my first symptoms of PMS until I was 17, and even then, I thought that was early.
Is this weird?
