(Warning:  graphic stuff ahead)

I mentioned before that I was fighting with a nasal polyp...well it's gone now...but not without due to a freak out moment.

See, I was trying to use a product called Tea Tree Oil, as I read it was really effective on these things (I looked at multiple sources).  It didn't seem to be working after a few days (average was four days) and I wondered it was due to the 'dead' parts of the polyp keeping me from getting the oil on the part it needed to be.  So I've been taking a pair of tweezers to try to get that dead stuff off so I can put the oil on the polyp directly (I can already hear 'what the hell where you thinking!?'  TBH...I wonder myself....)

Well, today (about 45min ago as of this journal in fact), I really got a hold of it...and...pulled the whole polyp out (it was about a nickel in size, width wise, in case you are curious)...followed by a lot of blood.

Enter the 'oh shit' phase as I blocked the flow the best I could with a tissue and ran to the bathroom, taking my nasal spray with me (that helped stopped nose bleeds in the past).  I don't know how long I was in there, pinching my nose (near where the bone is, which is where you are supposed to pinch for a nose bleed).  I did tell my family, just in case it didn't stop and I had to go to emergency (where I fully expected actual 'what were you thinking!?' from the personnel there).  Fortunately, that didn't need to happen, the bleeding did stop (though I did blow out the mother of all blood clots at one point...ew).  Of course, I will have to be careful for the rest of the day...perhaps the next couple of days, in case any sneezing or other things starts it up again. there you have stupid Kia moment...hopefully that will be my only one for a while!

*turns off the capslock for him*  I know about it, but only lightly keeping an eye on it atm as my interest in Halo is kind of low.

You're welcome.  I love your comics.  When I stopped seeing updates via the animalcomics group I got worried....

My, thanks again, I'm honoured you do^^
Yeah, sadly, animalcomics seemed to have become quite inactive, as it no longer accepted submissions for a while D8

Yeah, the lack of updates from there makes it hard to keep up with the comics I like.  At least now I won't miss an update from yours. :)

The way you do your sangheili is fantastic! Do you do all of your works on the computer???

atm, yes.  I may at some point, go back to traditional, but who knows when that will be.
