Snot Much? July 4, 2008

I woke up very stuffy headed this morning ( you know it’s gonna be a shocker when you wake up with a sinus headache!) so needed to use my trusty sinus rinse when I had my shower. The idea of the sinus rinse is to wash out the gunk that builds up in the sinus cavities and in that space between the bottom of the nasal cavity and the back of your throat.

Now, to use this instrument of torture wonderful invention, you simply fill with cooled, boiled water then add a sachet of the solution stuff, then squirt the contents up your nose.

Do you remember jumping into the pool and getting water up your nose and how it burned and made your eyes water? Well if you don’t have the solution stuff or let the water get too cold this is what happens. Hurts like a son of a bitch!

So this morning I have added the solution, warmed the cooled, boiled water to the appropriate temperature (think testing baby milk on your wrist cos that’s how I check this too lol Who’d have thought that skill would come in handy for other things?), hop in the shower and rinse away.

With the first squeeze I had hacked up half a lung and blew out enough snot to fill a box full of tissues!

No wonder my head was sore and stuff this morning with all that gunk in it!

Feels much better now…………. except that when I bend over I have water dripping out my nose! lol

I love you dearly, but the mental image in my mind at the moment is not good, and it’s nearly lunchtime.

Ahhh tis better out than in 😉
Hey, if grotty men can pick their nose up to (and past) the 3rd knuckle on their hand whilst waiting for the lights to change, a little sinus rinsing is nothin’ 😉

When I wake up stuffy and headachy it’s staight to the antihistamines. I’m affected by so much stuff, dammit! Sinus rinses just don’t do it for me.

Do not try to read when not wearing contact lenses. I thought River said “When I wake up with a stiffy”

Damn… that was weird.
