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.
