Nosebleed = Brainbleed

I’m freaking out! I have a bloody nose!

There I was, minding my own business, bumping around online, when blood suddenly started gushing from my right nostril. I’ve only had this problem one other time in my life—back in the sixth grade—which leads me to believe something must be seriously wrong if it’s happening again.

And, this is not your average bloody nose. This is a monster nosebleed. I’ve already drenched half a box of Kleenex. I’m loosing vision in my right eye and my left eye twitch is back.

It's not stopping. I’m off to WebMD to find out what horrible illness is accompanied by nosebleeds…

The same thing happened to me today!! And I have had a massive headache everyday for awhile so I am already really anxious about it. Do you think it could just be the dryness of winter?

I totally bet that’s what it is; either the season or allergies. Although, if you’re looking for something a little sexier, I did read that people with kidney disease get nosebleeds…;)

Nosebleeds happen! Frequently.

One my doctors (in California) suggested I used this neti pot sort of thing (sold at Kaiser Pharmacy) to irrigate my sinuses and help the irritation from my constant post-nasal drip. This was all well and good until I moved back East where it’s COLD.

Jeeze Louise! Was there blood! Being in the frigid outdoors raking leaves and then hanging our in dry heated indoors and doing nasal irrigation did not mix!
