So I called. What am I supposed to say? I have a really bad cold. Yeah. But there's pain running across my face, under my cheekbones and into my ears, and the mucus is thick and yellow. So I called.
Doc has me on some whomper horse pill antibiotics for seven days. I hate antibiotics. I hate pain more. Even more I hate blowing my raw nose. So last night I tried the spiced drink again, adding less brandy this time. Sudafed. Ibuprofen for the pain. And went to sleep. Yes. Sleep. With intermissions for nose blowing.
I'm going back to sleep now. Just for one more day. I figure I'll be all better by tomorrow, right?
Until I write again ...
P.S. Peopleses! No one but me has entered my contest, and my admission was stupid! Anyone out there plan on writing a little paragrah or five? Anyone? Pretty please? Deadline's tomorrow!
Sinus infection ... and I am not sure you should take OTC meds, ibuprofen, brandy AND antibiotics ...
Sinus yuckiness. And I wasn't kidding about making oregano tea....you can even make it with chicken broth...
Sinus infection!!!! YOUCH!!! Once upon a time I battled them, but for many years now I am free, or so it seems. I found lavender aromantherapy and hot soaks in the tub worked wonders (must be often . . . ahhhhhh, such treatment I must endure.) ; D
Careful with the mixing of those "cocktails." Sounds dangerous to me.
Take care, sweet friend. Prayers going up!

Yup, sounds like a major sinus infection to me too. Has the dr also suggested saline washes (miserable, but effective)?
Whatever it is it sounds absolutely miserable. Hope you kick it back to wherever it came from really soon.
Definitely a sinus infection. Have had many, many. Not fun. Get better. Sorry about the contest. I'm really doing good to blog and read blogs lately. Just now back to commenting.
Your readers speak the truth. It's a bugger of a thing and the whole "infection" part needs antibiotics. Hope you feel better soon.
