Take a gander at the beauty above. When they can’t stop the bleeding through normal and conventional means, they resort to this. The old Covid test is nothing compared to one of these bad boys.
After having a couple of these placed in my nostrils in the past couple of years can give me some massive anxiety. They’re painful and have to remain in place for 48-72 hours. An eternity, when you feel like you constantly have to blow your nose and the damn thing gives you a steady dull headache.
Despite my opposition to getting one, they had to do it. The bleeding was not stopping. So for the third or fourth time in the past two years, I had an oversized tampon on steroids shoved up into my nasal cavity where it felt like it was constantly kicking my brain.
I took a couple days off work and it was during this time that things kind of run together but I’ll do my best to write them down.
Over the next post…
