The only time I get self conscious when TOM (Time of Month) arrives is when I visit my relatives place and I need to change my tampon and they don’t have a trash can! I have to wrap the used tampon and applicator in toilet paper. So I have to do the Other Walk of Shame! From the bathroom to the kitchen trash can. The reason why they don’t have a trash can is because the small children get into trash and the women in the household dispose their tampons/pads in the kitchen trash can.
