Excerpt from Chapter Eighteen--
"When the paramedics finally arrived, I was relieved but felt self-conscious as well. I mentioned that I had taken a Midol earlier, but it didn’t even come close to curbing my pain. As the paramedics evaluated me I couldn’t help but feel embarrassed that I wasn’t able to handle the pain I was having and that I wanted to go to the emergency room for painful cramps. I was so dizzy and in such pain I didn’t know what else to do."
