What a great, supportive group you all are. Thank you!
Haven't yet gone to the doctor as life is getting in the way, but I hope to go sometime in October when life calms down a bit. I wasn't planning on starting treatment until the New Year, but the other day I noticed I was bleeding from my ankle, where there are a lot of little bumpy things on my birthmark, which I guess are blebs. I have no idea how I started bleeding or what caused it - but if it's birthmark-related, I definitely need to start sooner rather than later.
I'm a little nervous about insurance covering treatments, but I'll check out that link.
Thanks again, everyone.
