**Trigger warning/general sickness shit: LOTS AND LOTS OF BLOOD IN THIS JOURNAL! If that makes you uncomfortable or triggered i would advise you to stop reading
otherwise, carry on**
So i haven't been on lately and i apologize, with the end of school coming here i had some final projects to get done, i had two (thankfully only two) exams to study for and my cousins are coming up tomorrow and all weekend so i have to get ready for that and it has all been so ugh
But anyway i got my lip pierced last week (actually exactly a week ago lol) and i really like it, i died my hair black again and am starting set up for a self portrait photoshoot i wanna do (y'know, when my camera decides to work -_- ) and am hoping to get a new camera this summer, or a flute, or a wireless connector for my tablet....y'know...
But anyway, to the title of this journal, so i got my lip pierced a week ago, it went smoothly, bled a lil a few hours after i got it done but overall that was it, no sign of infection, didn't hurt, swelled just a tiny bit and i mean, it went as expected
Until last night
Now, i usually wake up at around 4am every night and go back to sleep, alarm goes at 6:30am and if it's a school day then i get up and if it's a weekend or holiday i got back to sleep until i wake up again
Well last night i woke up at 4am, as always, but with a weird taste in my mouth, i concluded it was the taste of blood and, as my mouth likes to trick me sometimes at this time of morning, ignored it, or at least tried to, after a moment of trying to figure out why my mouth tasted like blood and why it was filling with saliva so much i decided to go to the bathroom to check it out, and i really had to pee -_-
So i spit into the sink and it took me a moment to realize it was completely blood....
I 'smiled' to get a look at my teeth and lips and realized my teeth were red, my lips were red and my mouth was pooling with blood again. This was around the time my mum woke up and came in to. She had to use the bathroom or something and saw me spit into the sink, again, pure blood -_- She sat up with me for another half hour as i spit pure blood into the sink.....for...a...half...hour...straight...
and i joke all the time about drinking blood and whatnot but i don't think you realize until 4am-- and about 6 mouthfuls of blood later-- that it is sickening to the point of *in my case* almost throwing up
So i came to the conclusion that the blood was coming from my lip ring (Or stud if you wanna be technical) so i washed my hands, spit more blood into the sink and pulled my lip down to see what was going on (Mum was just watching and trying to clean up the blood on the counter)
So my only conclusion was that the skin had grown over the stud back slightly (The lady who stuck the needle through my lip said to watch out and keep pushing it back to make sure it didn't grow over and i mean i sleep for a long time and in the morning it sometimes is grown over just a lil, usually easy to poke back out and clean up, never bleeds, though, usually) and i caught it on my tooth and somehow pulled it and made it bleed
Nonetheless, i was awoken at 4am and spit pure blood into the sink for a half hour and then, just as easy as it came on, it stopped....I brushed my teeth, had a glass of water, cleaned my piercing and went back to bed....Mum cleaned the blood off the counter and sink and went to bed too....
She got home from work today (I slept in until like noon so that was the first time i got to talk to her today) and i looked at her and asked if last night really happened and seriously both of us sat there for like 20 minutes contemplating whether or not it happened....i mean we are 99% sure it did but it could just be a surreal nightmare
And i mean, it is now as if it never even happened, it doesn't hurt, it hasn't started bleeding since, nor has it started swelling
So that has to be the weirdest, most nightmarish and surreal thing ever to happen to me and holy shit, like to see that much blood in your own mouth is really offsetting
