4.1.05 | Um, i don't like to ask for advice, but...



So, lovely blog-person...

Ya wake up seven days in a row with oodles of yummy-tasting blood in yer mouth and no obvious reasons for said blood...

On the 8th day, there's none... or very little...

Would ya still book an appointment with the doctor on the 9th day?

I have felt very tired and run down recently, but am thinking this is due to my insomnia and a few other reasons, like anxiety...

Not sure what to do. Doctors or not doctors? Dentist perhaps? Wait and see?

I'm so indecisive about these things... i hate being a bother when there might be nothing wrong.

Sometimes i wish the whole world would just fuck off and let me sleep. These sleeping tablets are a waste of fucking time... doesn't matter how many i take, if sleep won't come, it won't...

Yours apathetically

Hmmm, well the presence of blood is one of the few exceptions to my no doctors rule. So doctors it is. Just in case it comes back. Or you start peeing blood or something.

Or coughing it up, that would also be bad.

To the doctor's with yeu! Just to save you another week pondering if you should go or not.

*gives you a good thump on the back* Take care yeah?

You waited SEVEN DAYS to make a doctor's appointment?!

I am a registered nurse, and although I really can't tell you what might be wrong with you, I would guess it is either something dental, or more likely (if your gums aren't bugging you) it is gastric reflux of a bleeding ulcer. The bleeding could cause you to be anemic, causing you to feel tired, run down, and have trouble sleeping. If it were due to gastric bleeding it could potentially be life threatening, because the majority is probably going through your digestive tract, and so the bleeding isn't as obvious. If your bowel movements are dark, that is also a sign of that. I would recommend going to a doctor...they can check you for anemia and these other things I mentioned, and if it is only a dental concern, they can refer you to a dentist.

Hey Sat, I'm quite absolutely terrified of MD's, myself, but if I could, I'd take your hand and go with you on the doctor visit anyways... =)

Be safe and well mate!

Cheers,

Stel

Get your ass to a doctor and stop f#cking around, young man. Don't make me come over there! >:(

Seriously... I agree with the nurse (was it Zen? I forgot already). If you are waking up with enough blood in your mouth to notice it, seven days in a row, it is very likely an ulcer that's causing it.
Being that I don't have insurance and medical costs are outrageous, I don't go to a doctor unless I'm close to death, lol. That said, I still urge YOU to go.
Please take care of yourself.

Going on the assumption that this is your own blood, to the doctors with you, better safe than sorry.

If you've started having allergic reactions to garlic and crucifixes, then I think you're past help.

Guh!!!
Wow I really cannot believe that you have waited soooo long to make some sort of an attempt too see what the problem could be... To me it sounds kind of serious...
Make the appointment... if the doctor doesnt know what the matter is consult a dentist... soon... Blood is not something cool at all...
I realize too that I have not been online or home or even updated my poor blog it what feels like forever... I have seriously been just going... I miss talking and I hope that you are doing better soon... right now it doesn't seem that way...
In the meantime I send a hug your way... * wink *

Have a good one

Right right. I hear yer all. Yr comments are all appreciated. I've made a doctors appointment for later today.

Will keep yer all informed as to my impending death or life and such... while i am not afraid of death, i have to say i am not one to lightly walk away from a relationship of any kind.... so, i'm most unwilling to leave behind all the people i've met via this humble blog... at the very least, i'm taking you all with me!

(Yee-haa! Wheer'es mah danged shooters!)

If it relieves anyones stresses, there was no yummy blood in my mouth today...

And Zen! Who'd have thought you were a nurse! Much respect and gratitude for yr knowledge... it (almost) goes without saying that your words more than anyone's have convinced/terrified me into action. *grins charmingly*

Lovely to see you appearing here again, Amanda... i'm looking forward to our next conversation with delight.

Bye for now dear peoples...

Waking up with blood in your mouth?

Hate to ask the obvious, but do you find sunlight painful and do you have an aversion to crosses, silver and garlic?
:)

Hope everything's OK mate!

Funny you should mention that, but i haven't seen the sunlight in months...
