    Hi all,

    I'm quite worried about my health at the moment regarding a personal something. Thing is, I don't know how to tell my mum that I would like to see a doctor about it because it just feels so awkward, it's even worse that my sister is always there too which makes it more awkward.

    Any advice?

    That is what mums are for. My sons told me all sorts of stuff about their health. I even went with my eldest to the local GUM clinic when he had unprotected sex with a gay man.

    If you can't tell your mum, tell me. I am a nurse.

    Get your mum to come into the kitchen or your room or somewhere away from your sister and just say you think you need to go see the doctor. She's an adult, she knows awkward things happen I'm sure she can cope with whatever it is.
    It's it's really that awkward that you just can't tell her then you can always go to the drs yourself. There's no age limit on seeing a doctor, you can go by yourself at any age.

    Honestly though mum's are there for this sort of stuff. She's cleaned up your poop before now and I'm willing to bet you've thrown up on her at least once. She's trained for this your whole life. I'm sure she can take it.

    Good luck with everything
