school nurse be like
one day this kid accidentally inhaled a small amount of chlorine gas in the chemistry lab and he was coughing and everything because lung spasms so our teacher sent him to the nurse and when he came back he was like
"she gave me a cough drop"
and our teacher was just ??? so he asked if the nurse knew the problem was in his lungs not his throat and the kid was just like
"yeah I told her but she said to take the cough drop anyway"
When I was in sixth grade, I had the WORST nose bleed imaginable. I’m talking the front of my t-shirt was just soaked in blood it was so bad and it just would NOT stop bleeding, so they sent me to the nurses office. And you know what she told me? She told me to “plug my nose and tip my head back”. That’s all she told me to do. So I’m sitting there, with my head tipped back and I’d been bleeding from my face for about 20 minutes at that point. And I just keep sitting there and sitting there, not realizing why my throat felt like it was closing up until I started gagging and basically vomited up this BASEBALL SIZE PARTIALLY COAGULATED BLOOD BUBBLE. I’m so shocked that all I could do is squeak cause I’m like 9 at this point and the nurse has the nerve to start SCREAMING at me while there’s still blood pouring from my nose. So she has me, again 9 years old, get down on my hands and knees to clean up this gigantic blood bubble still while screaming at me. It took 45 minutes for my nose to finally stop bleeding. They never once said anything about sending me to the hospital to have my bleeding checked out and they never even called my parents. I went around the whole day, covered in blood.
Although it’s probably obvious at this point, I’d like to add that you should never tilt your head back when you have a nosebleed because it send the blood down your throat. You tilt your head forward and pinch the bridge of your nose.
I’d also like to note that it is very difficult/possibly impossible to dye from a nose bleed.
Obvs your nurse didn’t know what she was doing, but if that ever happens to you, know that you probably won’t die. It can actually get so bad that you can bleed out your eyeballs if it doesn’t get taken care of (So, yeah, if that happens you definitely want to get to a hospital.)
