Snotty Turdy Head

I've been a little lax in the posting department lately but I have a good excuse:  A raging sinus infection.

I woke up Saturday morning feeling sort of okay but not really okay and then by early afternoon, my sinuses were pounding and throbbing (sounds just a bit pornographic), my nose was stuffed up yet running and I don't know how a stuff up nose can also be running at the same time and it really seems unfair that it happens like that, my throat was dry and scratchy and I was all, "just shoot me please."

TheManTheMyth and Thing 1 were in Utah and Thing 2 was at the movies with Thing 1's girlfriend so I figured I would just lay down and take a nap when there was a knock at the door.  And lo and behold, my uncle, who I had not seen in at least 10 years, was standing there.

We had a perfectly lovely visit and by the time he left several hours later, my throat was on fire from all the talking and my sinus headache had worsened so I loaded up on cold meds and went to bed.

And speaking of cold meds, the one I had taken said to take every 4 hours and lemme tell you, they weren't kidding.  At 4 hours and 1 minute after taking them, they wore off with a vengeance and I had to drag my sorry ass out of bed and dose myself again.  So how is this the "nighttime cold medicine" I ask you.

Just when I think I'm on the mend, a new symptom shows up.  The latest is that annoying tickling drip in the back of the throat that causes you to start coughing and hacking.  And it almost always kicks in at about 1:37am.

So here it is Wednesday.

I'm still sick.



  1. I'm impressed that you're able to last 4 hours and 1 minute - the stuff always seems to wear off for me at around 3 1/2 hours.

    I'm sorry you're sick - it sounds miserable. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. Sorry you're sick. I'm sprinkling magic fairy dust all over here in the hopes that it will banish those awful sinus bugs.

    I get a sinus infection about once a year and I find them intolerable. I can actually feel my sinus cavities pulsating. Ugh. Feel better soon.
