My Kind of Home Movie

So, I was going to post a photo from the movie "Carrie". However, I thought it might frighten too many readers. I'll just talk about it instead. And maybe get some medical information at the same time.

Tuesday morning, I had a nosebleed. I've had a few in the distant past. Didn't worry too much. Yesterday morning, I had another nosebleed. A little messier. I got a bit irritated. Last night, during President Obama's Press Conference, I had a really nasty one. While I'm willing to pay up to have a better health care system in our country, I hadn't counted on paying through the nose at this point. Twenty minutes and two ice cubes later, it was done and I went to bed. With a towel beside my head. At four thirty this morning, I experienced a red waterfall and I haven't been quite the same since.

I'm going to the doc this morning. After I get back, I'll finish cleaning the bathroom. Aaah, Sissy Spacek would be proud of me.

Why go out for a horror movie when you can be part of one in your own home?

Wow...I can empathize. I've been having nosebleeds off and on for the past few years...again. They were common when I was a kid.
I hope it's from the ac and the sinus meds I'm on.......I hope they're not from the high blood pressure they can be from.
Imagine getting one in the middle of I about a Carrie moment. :)

Does the rest of the world experience nose bleeds too? Thanksfully mine resulted from a sinus infection that antibiotics cleared up. But there was no joy in my nose while it was ongoing!

That's scarey! Let us know what the doctor says.

Kim....Sorry to hear about the nosebleeds. Hope the doc can give you the cure, because it would be a bloody disaster if you bled on your wonderful quilts.

Seriously I hope things go well.

Hope all is well, Kim. I don't think I've ever had a nose bleed.

yikes, this is definitely the time of year for them, but that does sound nasty. I'm sure it's nothing but sending positive vibes for no more of them. (Are you sure Calvin Klein and you didn't exchange a few punches?)
