This is my belly button! This is a BIG deal! I HATE anything near my belly button.... when I say I hate it what I really mean is it totally grosses me out and I feel like I'm gonna puke or freak or worse! It’s really bad! I can’t help it it’s just me! Sticking that marble in it was a serious triumph! Not that the marble was really in to far! But I didn’t die so it was ok!
I have a belly button story... it’s probably a bit weird and maybe even gross I don’t know!
Here goes anyway!
I had my gallbladder out a couple of years ago and had staples in three places, one of which was the afore mentioned belly button... I must just interject here that I never never go into the doctor to get stitches out if I have them and I have only had staples once before when I had major knee surgery years ago when I wasn’t so crazy! So after I had the gallbladder out I did the usual incision inspection and was surprised to see the staples! Also not to happy with how many were in the belly button pit! To be honest they could have done me a huge favour and just sewed the thing totally up! I would have been delighted! No more freaky belly button thing! But they didn’t :~( The usual 7 to 10 days later I had an appointment with the nurse to get them out. But the day before I decided I would give it a go! The first 3 were so so, the only thing I can say is they were easy enough to reach. The next 4, in a different location, were a bit better as I was getting some practice! But then... the dreaded! The belly button! All I could think was if I don’t get these out myself the nurse is going to go digging in there and that would be VERY bad! Which is why I started the whole de-stapling project anyway! (I most likely would have done it anyway though! I'm just a freak like that!) But! I really didn’t want to freak out at the nurse and try to strangle her or anything and most I didn’t want her near my belly button! So.... did I mention I was using two pair of needle nose pliers? Well I was, and I might add they worked very well! Anyway to the dreaded! 6 there and deep! Oh fuck! Help! Arrrrrrgggghhhh!!!!!! Got three of them and couldn’t stomach it anymore! LOL! The next day at the doctor it was of course a new nurse I didn’t know, and her first day! Yeah I know! After explaining my aversion to my belly button she went in.... looking very nervous and quite disturbed! Also looking at me like I was a total mad lunatic! I'm used to that! I'm glad to say we both made it out ok! I didn’t freak out or anything and funny enough I didn’t even feel a thing either! LOL! That poor nurse! She must have noted I had taken the rest of the out as my regular nurse commented on my next visit... she asked me how I got them out... all I said is “do you really want to know?”
So that's it.... I hate my belly button but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be sticking a marble in it! Is that cheering in the distance I hear? Yes! Yes! It is! Thank you! Thank you very much!
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
