Don’t get nosebleeds.
Yes, this was me just last week, very cleverly illustrated for me by my wonderful Hubby!!! I was at the office when out of nowhere: nose bleed. I get them periodically, but racing around the office holding my head back and looking for tissues was not something I planned on.
If you want to be smarter than me you can prevent nosebleeds in several simple ways:
Use a humidifier. This time of year the air is dryer, and having the heater on in the house dries it out more.
You can also use nasal sprays to moisten the inside of your nose directly, but these are actually addictive, so only use it every other day or less.
Try to breath through your mouth when sleeping. This also prevents the delicate nasal tissues from drying out too much. If my sinuses are bothering me, I breath in through my mouth, and out slowly through my nose to warm and moisten the area.
Okay, ugh that’s enough talk about the inside of my, or anyone else’s nose. I hope that was very useful, and you enjoyed laughing at my discomfort. 5 gold stars to each of you who got what the title of this blog is referencing. I hope you guys have a chart or something, because I’ve been handing out gold stars like candy without keeping track.
And if I haven’t mentioned it before, everything in this blog is copyrighted by me, and that drawing by my Hubby. Don’t get any ideas about using my stuff, or I will sue. I need every penny I can get out of you in a settlement. Cheers!
