So my gross tolerance is through the roof when it comes to my mucus. I cough into a clear cup when doing my treatments so I can keep tabs on the viscosity, color, texture, and amount of mucus I cough up. I take pics of my big plugs which I know is beyond weird, but they are so darn fascinating. When my husband started looking at old vacation pics I warned him about my plug pics and he proceeded anyway. He just kept staring at the plug pic without even blinking. I wasn't sure what to make of his reaction until he said, "I CANNOT believe that came out of your lungs." My thoughts exactly and the reason for the photograph! Also when I have a cold (like now) I use my sinus rinse three times a day, but get this I plug the drain. Yes, you heard me right I plug the drain so I can see what comes out of my sinuses. Again I look at amount, color, texture, etc. This helps me determine how bad my cold has gotten and if I need to call the doc. Don't worry no sinus mucus pics have ever been taken.
So here is what baffels me. Today in class a kid sneezed before he had time to get a tissue. He had a long string of mucus hanging from his nose while he ran to the back to grab a tissue and cleaned it up and
OMG talk about gross. Why is it that other people's bodily fluids (mucus) so much more disgusting than our own?!?
