Lumps

So, I have 2 small lumps in a very private area. Well, you need the special doctor to examin them anyway. Been putting it off first because for a couple of months there was only 1, second because they both presented as bug bites, and third because the first was getting smaller.

However, yesterday I sucked it up and went to the womens center to have them looked at. Couldn't see either of the 2 doctors I like, got stuck with a new guy, yes guy, who seemed hell bent on insisting I had cancelled an appointment with him and complaining about everyone who does that. 

However he finally got around to the exam and originally couldn't find them, I had to show him were they were. 

They are interesting because you can't see them, only feel them until you sort of stretch the skin around them. But at last he saw them.

And I can tell you, I wasted a lot of energy being scared of them. I thought they were cysts or worse. You know what they are? Glands. Swollen sweat glands. Glands that fill with water and sometimes go away and sometimes turn into hard bumps. And most likely I will get more. 

He offered to raise and pop them. Sounds painfull right? I said "If you don't have to, DON'T!"

In case y'all have yet to notice, I never get normal problems. I get the weird stuff.

      I know. But sometimes you need to tell yourself that a few times before you gain enough courage.

    I am overjoyed the trouble is a simple thing will sort itself in time. I am delighted you bit the bullet and got knowledge, uncertainty rots.
    May your health behave.
