So I finally got myself a doctor. After all these years of going to the walk in clinics. How nice.
While I was there, I decided to ask her about the bruise I have on my shin. Sure, you're thinking, it's a bruise, what's the big deal?
Well...because it has been about a year since I fell down the stairs - or rather, slid down the cement and steel stairs on my shins. That's an awful long time to have a bruise.
This is what she said to me:
"Oh, well, it is likely a haematoma. Just look it up on the internet."
And then she progressed with taking my blood pressure.
So nice to finally have a doctor of my own who is concerned for my health and wellbeing, and making sure I understand.
Maybe I'm better off at the clinic.
