googling the symptoms

Clicking keys and thousands

Of Google pages later

I’m still no closer to the the truth

In fact, I’m more confused

As the heart beats faster

Realising it’s probably contagious

And painful, and will most likely end in death.

I have done that thing that you are always told to ABSOLUTELY NOT DO. I found a little lump in my armpit, and it could be absolutely anything. It could be an ingrown hair, or a cyst or an infection or a whole list of about twenty other things.

But, of course, Google seems to sift out all the less serious stuff and you are just greeted with a message that you should prepare for the worst.

And the more you dig, the worse it gets. I have decided to just step away from the laptop and book a doctor’s appointment. Speaking to someone who actually has a degree in something other than 19th Century Literature will be much more helpful and productive.

I’m sure this little nubbin is nothing, but can I take this opportunity to remind women to take the time to check your boobs – just in case.

Much Love

    You are being so wise, Rachel! It mostly likely is nothing, and your mind will be at ease to have that confirmed. If it is something to be concerned about, a doctor is the best source of helpful information on what it is, what the prognosis is, and what your options are. But the quicker you book, the better off you’ll be no matter what it is.
