This Poor Girl Is Shooting Snot From Her Eyes And It’s Disgusting

  • 0

Somewhere out there, there’s a poor girl who might be still struggling with this problem. You know, the whole snot-coming-out-of-your-tear-duct problem. Before you freak out, there’s a couple of things you should know (and probably know all about, but I’m going to tell you anyway).

The tear duct, where tears come out to lubricate our delicate eyeballs, is connected to a chamber called the “inferior nasal meatus,” which is a nasal passage directly about the roof of your mouth. It carries extra tears from the tear ducts and down into your throat.

In this case, however, it seems that when pressure is applied — blowing your nose to empty the sinuses — the mucus is instead pushed up through said meatus and out through her tear ducts. What can this mean? Weak muscles? Or does it mean we all have boogers stashed somewhere deep in our faces. I wonder how it feels to get snot out from your tear ducts. Anyway, I hope she’s okay.

If I’ve made any errors about the human anatomy, feel free to put me on blast. TC mark

Poetry Lovers! 💖

Love a soft person. The ones who are positive, even in the worst of circumstances. Someone whose strength is not in bravado, but in their quiet. Someone who is strong for others because that is what is needed in that moment. Someone who is the moon that soothes instead of the sun that burns. Someone who sees the very best in people even when you think they aren’t worth it. The kind of person who always wants to do the best for those they love.

“I bought this on a whim to read as I was resting for the night, and I do not regret it one bit! Everything about the poetry in this book is amazing, heart breaking, and soul searching. It will lift your spirits on your darkest days. I want to thank the author so much for writing this, as it’s something I will be rereading a lot! Always remember, everything about you is important. You matter.” —McKayla
