So this is what happened…

I can’t believe I’m telling this but it was really was funny so I am going to. I have included artwork for your viewing pleasure. I did not draw these myself because mine would have been much grosser.

Yesterday I thought I might be coming down with something so I was prepared to wake up sick today and work from home. It’s a good thing I was prepared because I did end up working from home but not for the reason I expected.

I went to bed and just as I was getting ready to drift off to sleep…

I realized my nose felt a little stuffy and then remembered I hadn’t used my perscription anti-histamine nasal spray. I keep it next to my bed so I sat halfway up and grabbed it. This is what it looked like when I did one side.


This is what it looked like when I did the second side.

I don’t know how it happened but somehow my arm slipped or something and instead of gently squeezing a metered dose of lovely medicine up my nose I shoved the bottle up my nose! I jammed that plastic piece so hard that blood started pouring out of my nose like someone turned on a faucet.

It took me about 45 minutes to get the bleeding to stop. I was very close to hitting the Emergency Room but I didn’t want to explain to a stranger what happened! It was unbelievable, I’ve never seen so much blood. It looked like someone got shot in my bed.

When I woke up this morning one side of my nose is all swollen and I sound like a comedien pretending to have a cold. It’s achy like having a headache on the side of your nose & one sinus. My husband made me promise to go to the doctor just in case I had actually damaged something. Luckily when I called someone else had just cancelled for this afternoon. We all spent a lot of time laughing when I explained what had happened. She said it doesn’t look too bad just a big old scab covering the inside of my nose The nasalness to my voice probably has more to do with the blood that probably went up into my sinus cavity. I’m going to try some warm compresses tonight to break some of the dried stuff up.

I’m so glad I didn’t break my nose! Luckily it appears like I slammed myself into the soft parts and not the bone.


Who does something like that?
