9 Dec

I went to the health center to get my nose examined today (brought extra paper with me in case it would start again – always prepared, right?). Mostly the doctor asked me questions about when my nose started bleeding, if I hit it somehow or if I know any other cause, how often and what do I do about it, and also if I bruise or bleed easily otherwise, if I have any allergies, or diseases in the family, and how I am feeling physically. I had already answered those exact questions when I called to book an appointment this morning, but like the “good” girl I am, I answered them again. Doc said that nosebleed can be caused by damaged or malformed blood vessels or… a blood disease. And also pointed out that I look, no offense, wan and worn, and wondered whether it is my normal look or of it is the nosebleed. I wasn’t sure, “both” I answered and laughed weakly.
I’m going back first thing tomorrow to run some tests. If it turns out to be a blood vessel problem, the doc said that they are going to burn some spot inside my nose, and just the thought of it…
But if it turns out to be a blood disease… I choose burning my nose, any day, every day. It sounds much more scarier. When I think blood disease, I think… well, you know, probably same things that you think, right? And isn’t that scary as heck?

One thing I am sure of, even long after my nosebleed stops, is that I’ll be having bloody nightmares for a very long time.
But hopefully not tonight, because I need to get much sleep before my grueling day tomorrow.
God, I probably have tons of homework piled up, too, don’t I? As soon is I have my nose under control, I will have it glued to Global Media Discourse and Inventing English to catch up. And I don’t even want to think about what else I am missing…

I’d better go to bed before I’ll get really… emotional, haha. Good night, all!
PS. Still haven’t cleaned my room or found my camera cord. La-Z.

        I don’t know if it’s the same… because I am a girl, and 20 now, and it is stopping me from going to class. But Mom took me to the Health Center last week to do a blood test, so that we can do something about it.

        Thank you for reading my blog and commenting, tia!
