Nose Job

tumblr_ooo7yuz4jo1ry5naio1_500

A month ago I had a nose job. It was a totally new experience for me. I actually did not know what to expect. I was amused and nervous at the same time. If you are going to have a nose job. It does not matter if it is because you want a prettier nose or you need the surgery to remove a health problem. I’m going to tell you about my experience and some tips that may help. I have to say that I’m not a professional, and this tips and tricks are only things that helped me through my surgery and after it.

GENERAL ADVICE:

1.- If you are a nervous person, you may need general anaesthetic instead of the local one. Why this? Because, you will be able to listen everything the doctor say and the whole process of the nasal reconstruction. Ask your doctor first and expose the situations that you consider important.

2.- Get a nice sleep the night before: You might not be able to sleep the whole previous night, cause the pain is not gonna let you.

3.- Buy a comforting pillow: This is going to help at the sleeping time.

4.- Wearing glasses is not an option: The nose can be more inflamed and the healing process will be slowed down. Instead; try buying some contacts, but remember contacts take time to make, so buy them one or two weeks before the surgery.

5.- Avoid using your phone after and before the surgery. You are going to be tired and using electronic devices is not the best option.

6.- The Hair: Your nose cannot touch water at all, so taking a shower is going to be a challenge. Try not washing your hair daily before the surgery, this can make a huge difference. Cause hair will not be as greasy as if you don’t get used to not washing it.

7.- Put on Arnica: It is a natural remedy for inflammation and it can help to rush the healing process.

8.- To clean the nose use some Q-Tips: carefully grab a q-tip and put it on your nose, moving it in circles slowly and be patient cause it can take a while.

9.- DO NOT BLOW YOUR NOSE: I made this mistake, my nose started bleeding for 7 minutes uncontrollably. Even though you have the need to blow your nose. Do not do it.

10.- In case you blew your nose: Do not move to much, put a gauze on, and it will stop bleeding eventually.

11.- Drink a lot of water: This is a very important thing, try drinking as much water as you can, if not your lips will be totally dry. Believe me.

ADVICE FOR GIRLS:

I’m not trying to be judgmental, but I don’t think guys would do this things. If you guys wanna try this, its okay as well.

1.- Having eyebrows done: After the surgery you would not be able to do your eyebrows, it would be really painful if you even try it. Also it is not good for your nose health.

2.- Try not to use makeup: I know some girls can struggle a lot with this, but leaving your face specifically your nose and it surroundings without makeup can be beneficial for you and your nose will appreciate it. This is basically because of the chemical substances that these products can contain.

3.- Try light odors, do not use very fragrant perfumes cause they can be really strong odors for your nose.

4.- Your nails cannot be done: This is a medical restriction when having a surgery.

5.- Remove the unwanted facial hair, if you want of course, after the surgery it can become a little difficult to get rid of those baby hairs.

Remember that this things listed above are just things that personally helped me. Dont be afraid before the surgery. It is going to be a very satisfying moment when you see the results. Dont forget that you are beautiful or handsome the way you are. If you want more advice tell me on the comments. Good Luck!

Anxiety & Anger

2b7206bdea5b80763626fe29dbd4ebde-tumblr-girls-profile-pictures

Two feelings that are extremely hard to control. They can make you turn into another person. Someone who you actually don’t want to be. Controlling them, it’s just as difficult as jumping from an airplane when you’re afraid of heights.

I’ve already written something about my anxiety and how to deal with it. But gosh, recently I’ve been having a lot of trouble controlling anger. I’ve always been a girl who hides emotions, cause for me that’s what makes me feel stronger and not vulnerable at all. I know that maybe I should not be that way. Keeping every single feeling to myself and do not let me cry when I want to, can provoke some harm in future times. I’ve tried a lot of things to keep away my anger. Sometimes it works, others, not that much.

Have you had that feeling you just want to leave everything and run away? Well, that happens to me when I cannot control myself, specifically my emotions. I know sometimes we want to do some things and they turn out to be misplaced. Maybe faith do not want us to have those things, or maybe we just need to try harder to get them.

Along the time, I’ve been researching ways to control inner self-control and emotions that can make us make bad decisions. I’ve found interesting things that may or may no help us all. I list them down below.

  1. Think before you speak or make a decision: Sometimes when we are angry, we don’t visualize every single detail of the situation that is happening. We just focus on the problem that is bothering us. We need to see ahead the bubble and do not let emotion take our decisions. Cause later we will regret them.
  2. Try a relaxing bath: After a hard day of work or school or college. Take a relaxing bath put on some music that you like the most and create that background that gets you in a good mood.
  3. Make a Playlist: Lots of people tend to be music lovers. Well, if you are one of them try making a new playlist that will make you smile as soon as you hear it. Dont try to list popular music, list the kind of music that you totally and actually like, Your mood can change with good music.
  4. Pamper yourself: Even if you are a girl or a guy try to embrace yourself. Nothing can give you the power to love yourself. Just YOU. Try exfoliation your face, put on mask, try a new lotion, eat a candy or chocolate that you love. Be Creative.
  5. Go out with Friends: Use that negativity and turn it into posivity. Go out and have fun like there is no tomorrow.

 

Anxiety Problems 

Overthinking

Anxiety has been a problem since I started high school. I’ve already have had several break downs. Even, I had to go to the hospital because of it.

Over thinking is one of the most common symptoms I have when I’m going to start with an anxiety break down. My head starts hurting like hell, I just can’t focus on anything; every single problem, memory, person comes through my mind at the same time. My heart starts racing, I feel tightening on the chest, my breathing starts to go faster and restlessness.

There are some nights when I just can’t sleep, so I just start watching YouTube videos. Which are basically about my favorite tv series or movies. I just end up crying out my eyes without any reason. Why? Because information gets stuck in our heads, like we need to check out every single thing that happens to us. Movies and TV shows, personally affect me a lot when I’m going through a similar situation. Feeling like nobody cares or likes you because some foolish reasons. Being paralyzed by a new project or presentation or experience. That feeling of loneliness and darkness living among us in this big world.

I’ve been trying to deal with this problem. There are such things that actually work for me:

  • Listening to music without headphones: The reason is, if I start with earphones I just get lost and my head starts to hurt again, so when my anxiety has already slow down a little, I just put earphones on.
  • Smell peppermint; this actually helps me a lot, so I can relax and slow down my breathing and my thoughts start to vanish.
  • Close my eyes and start breathing slowly; just deep breaths can calm me down. Trying not to think on anything else, just focusing on my own breathing.
  • Write in a journal: Maybe this sounds so cliché, but believe me it actually works a lot. Expressing yourself to you in a book is relaxing. You leave all the darkness among those words you are writing.
  • Sleep; this is the cure for a full mind. Get some sleep and when you wake up you are going to feel better.

Honestly, what mostly works for me, its music. I don’t know what I would do without it. I’m basically listening to music every single day, every single time. When I have this break downs all I can do is play my Shawn Mendes songs and just focus on his voice. I don’t know how his voice can control my anxiety, its like magic, I swear. When everything gets calm I start listening to my focus playlist on Spotify, and my anxiety goes away for the night and the next day.

I know how this thing can make you feel sad and angry and frustrated all at the same time. But believe me, find those things that can make you feel better. You’ll go through them and you’ll feel better, I know that its hard, but remember that you’re the only one that can control it, so don’t be afraid and fight against those anxiety break downs that makes us feel the most vulnerable person in the world, cause we are not. I highly recommend to try out those things I mention before. Maybe you have that one artist or that one person that can help you get calm. Do not hesitate to listen to his or her voice or call that friend that has been always there for you. No matter what. Anyway, if you think ou don’t have anybody. You can come to me. My blog is open for everybody in this world. I will listen, and if it is on my power I will help you go trough all the rough stuff. I am al ears, do not hesitate. Just leave me a message or a comment down below.

Dont worry, you are not alone in this. Lots of people tend to have this anxiety problems. But with HOPE, LOVE, FRIENDSHIP & SELF-ESTEEM everything can turn from black to a beautiful rainbowed color.

Learning from a TV show

laptop

Lately I’ve been thinking a lot of what should I do with my future, I’ve been stressing out for all this stuff and I actually wasn’t even think about it in a focused way, tonight I was just watching awkward *I’ve already talked about that series btw* and I just realized that finishing that show has open my mind a lot.

I can say that I can be a like to Jenna Hamilton in a certain way, some experiences she has during the show have shown me a lot and I’ve been learning from them, I know that we have to find our own voice and to reach what we must want in life, but watching this show has helped me a lot to find out those little things that happen in high school such as love, friendship and education, things which maybe I haven’t realized before, but for now I can truly say that we all make mistakes, we all need to learn from them, and sometimes it is fate to be in a specific place, with a specific person and in a specific time.

I know that time let us know who we really want to be, but during the journey we have to discover ourselves, I’ve never been the girl who knows everything, I’m not the girl who’s always has the answers, I’ve made lots of mistakes, but nothing will be the same if I hadn’t made them, they’re part of me and without them I will not be the same person I am now.

During this journey I’ve learned a lot, watching all those movies, tv shows or series, I’ve realized that sometimes we only need a little help to go through all this stuff and survive along this thing called LIFE cause at the end we all have a purpose on this world, and we need to fight hard to find which is our destiny.

I can’t belive how the authors of Awkward. could have made all of this, I’m just impressed, there are such many chapters which I just can’t handle, pressing the pause button was the only solution to take a minute and think about my own problems, trying to find what I was doing wrong at that time, this show brought me a lot of laugh, tears, smiles but the most important thing I really learned about how hard life can be, how harsh people can turn out. I would really recommend this show to all those ones that need a little of high school and teenage knowledge, it really helps, also personally I had this days in which I started watching it and I just could not understand a word of it, those times I just close the tab and watch another thing, I don’t know how, but you’ll only watch the show in the right time, when you really need it. I discovered this show in my fifth semester of high school and I could be more thankful for it, this show has been an anchor that lets me keep going with things that I thought were not relevant at all, I really think it was just a sign maybe even fate.

Maybe this is more a review about a series than something personal, but for me it has been a whole experience which by the way has taught me more that even some of own experiences, I’m really thankful for those awkward authors, they must be really proud of their work, because they really nailed it.

Can’t Take That Away

Best Friends.jpg

There’s something in life called fate, and it’s when we don’t know what can happen to us, we don’t know who’s going to stay, who’s going to leave, who’s going to let us down, sometimes we just have to keep living our life and let some things happen.

Today I had like a kind of fight with my best friend & I just wanted to run and throw everything away. There’s nothing as complicated as trying to be something more with your best friend, at first I thought that it actually wasn’t  that difficult at all, but for now I can say, for real that is something extremely difficult.

Loving someone this much can bring some complications into a relationship, best friends are supposed to stay that way, but to be honest sometimes one of them would fall for the other and maybe at a wrong time. We should be ready for things like this, I honestly didn’t knew what to do, I was so stuck with someone else that I didn’t figure things out about how I was really feeling. Today when he told me that nothing more was going to happen between us because he didn’t have the plan of having a girlfriend just broke me, and I don’t know if it was because I actually thought that my best friend would never do that, he would never break me or because I really like him & I actually wanted to try something with him.

I still don’t know what to think, or how to feel, maybe time will decide what is best for me, for him, for us, but for now maybe all I have to do is forget about everything that happened and just talk like best friends are supposed to talk.

 

Awkward…

Today I was just laying in my bed and start seeing Awkward, an extremely great TV show by the way, it sometimes helps me to realize some things that happen in my life, all those awkward situations… at the end of the 7th episode I just shut down my laptop and grab my phone and start typing to this guy, explaining a bunch of the dumbest things we did, I don’t know how a TV show can give me the courage I needed to say what I think or feel, I’m just shaking right now, because this was so awkward, and maybe I’ll regret about it, but for now I feel FREE, saying all those things are such a satisfying feeling I can’t even believe I really did it. I’m literally laughing out loud without any reason, maybe that’s all I really needed to tell him how I felt & my thoughts about us.

We’ll always remember you 

We don’t know what we have, we complain about everything, we think that life it’s so unfair with us, but damn! We have to realize that we’re alive, that we live, that we have family and friends surrounding us with their love, that we don’t have to fight for our lives. I know that maybe this can be a thing that most parents say, but it’s real, now I get that this is real.
I will remember you forever, even though we were not that close, we were friends, I won’t forget those memories, I won’t forget how we start talking, I won’t forget your smile or that song in common we have, I won’t forget that trip we had together, I won’t forget you, I promise you that my brother and I will remember you till the end of time, hope God have you in his glory, we’re going to miss you, you’ll always be part of us. Rest In Peace My Little Friend. JRR 😇
