Well, my appointment came through for tomorrow, for once the NHS are being useful. I'm being sent to see a consultant...apprehensive about the fact that it's a man but I guess that's a hang up all women have with any kind of sensitive problem.
I know I'm putting up my own hurdles, I'm definitely expecting the worst. I'm just dreading the response I had from doctors when I was 15 and in hospital "I just cannot give you a urine sample" "Well, you'll just have to try". I was in agony after about 10 glasses of water, what did they think I was doing, going to the toilet and brushing my hair?! I just have to remember all the good advice I've been given on here - I'm really grateful, thank you
