Well I'm sick now and I'm posting.
This is my second major cold/creeping into a sinus infection in a month. The NetiPot and Vicks on the feet at night, covered with socks, has handily defeated it both times. I despise the Neti. It's vile. It gags me. The whole sensation is just WRONG. But it works. Unplugs and takes away the pain of stopped up sinuses. Still hate it.
And the Vicks on the feet! Shocked, but it really works, too! One night was all it took! Thank goodness. It was that or a doctor's visit for antibiotics. I hate being on antibiotics more than I hate the Neti.
It's a good thing that the Neti and the Vicks worked (I did both last night), because I awoke to severe stomach pain at four AM. And tossed cookies for about 10 minutes at about seven. The most ... remarkable? ... thing about this is that I DON'T THROW UP. Ever. I can count on one hand the number of times in the last 20 years.
Slept all freakin' day. Major pain. Totally dehydrated. Joints ached.
And then my Hunny came home from work. He brought ginger ale. And chicken noodle soup. He cleaned the tub and ran a hot bath for me. He even brought fresh Vicks - some which hasn't expired in the last 8 years.
I love my Hunny.
And I'm going back to bed. I plan on waking well tomorrow. Doing laundry. Stuff. Y'know? Have a great weekend everyone!
Until I write again ...
