So I was rather hoping that the GP would say something like Oh that's just a harmless old cyst. Worry not, it'll go away by itself.
She didn't. She wants me to see a specialist urgently.
Luckily, through Mr SMs work I have private insurance, which means that instead of waiting two long weeks, I have an appointment on Wednesday (2 days from now).
You know the really annoying thing? She didn't even ask me how much I drink! I've been desperate to be asked that question by a medical professional and not have to lie!
So now I'm officially freaking out, and trying to keep the ship sailing along as usual so the children don't think anything's wrong. #1 is on half term this week, and they're all on half term next week.
Thank you all again for all your wonderful support.
