A Sinus Strike

Wednesday, August 19, 2009


As if a sudden attack of the flu last week wasn't enough, I've now been smacked in the face with what I'm pretty sure is a sinus infection. I'm allergic to Texas, and have a small pharmacy set up on my kitchen counter to prove it. I ran out of blue allergen numbing pills last week, and the man of the house, the guy who takes the car daily, couldn't keep it on the top of his oh so busy (obvious exaggeration) memory to stop by the base clinic to pick new ones up for me. Hey, I understand, its not his face that's effected by the pollen and grass seeds. The absence of the immunity boost has taken a toll on my overall health, starting out as just a little sniffle, developing into a complete face and brain cave in. I've since gotten my prescriptions refilled (thank you Christopher, I do love you, I don't mean to nag) (yes I do), but my body has continued with its strike, and I'm now ready to crawl on hands and knees to a doctor, any doctor, that will offer me strong antibiotics and a hopefully some kind of ooey gooey shot in the hip that will make the room stop spinning.

Have you used the Neti pot? I have 3 friends who swear by them, but I'm afraid.....

No, I haven't tried a neti pot, but its been suggested by several doctors. They kind of frighten me, and call to me, at the same time, haha. I really want to try them. I found that beautiful one on etsy. Maybe if I had one that looked pretty, it wouldn't be so scary.
