So the tip my left nipple started bleeding in the shower this morning. Now, it's nothing awful: the top layer of skin must have got a bit oxygen-starved after the op, basically scabbed up, and the scab has started to come off. Underneath the scabby part is very delicate new pink skin. When giving it a bit of a pat/wash this morning, this delicate skin started to seep blood.

While I know it's nothing to worry about, and the blood was coming from nowhere near the actual stitches around my nipple, it's been preying on my mind all day. I put a light non-stick dressing over it, there's been no pain, it's not inflamed, a little bit more scab has re-formed, blah blah blah, but it's still ACK! in my mind. I think I'll feel better when all the scabbing is off and the skin is a bit tougher. There's been a bit of leakage from where the stitches are all underneath and so on, but that's absolutely fine; a nipple with a tiny bit of blood coming out of it, not so much, evidently.

Of course, you could have been breast-feeding a demon while you slept. Isn't that supposed to be the sign of a witch? And I could never understand how, considering how bloody painful it is to breastfeed a human child, how the hell some poor woman could breastfeed a demon or devil without any preparation or anything!

And on that crazy note, I'll just remind you that the nipples do have little holes in them and they will leak anything that's hanging around inside. I reckon you just had a bruise looking for somewhere to relieve the pressure. Torn cabbage leaves stuffed in your bra might help.

Nah, you were probably doing it right. Apparently just a little bit wrong though leads to ouchies. * twinges at the memory *

As long as it heals again, I would try not to worry too much. Easier said than done, I know.

Oh, don't get me started on intellectual acceptance and emotional freaking out...
