The Neti Pot!
Do you have one because O.M.G. this baby is a game-changer!
The flu that I seemed to have all weekend somehow morphed Sunday night. It was an unexpected and pretty violent transformation, I have to say. Without warning, my sinuses became my sole focus because it wasn't just uncomfortable, it was painful. The pressure was UNREAL, like a car compactor at the junkyard had somehow found its way into my sinus cavity and decided to play an evil trick on me.
And then someone decided to turn on the faucet, on full blast. I'm talking well beyond an annoying drip here, people.
I finally pulled out the Neti Pot last night with the hope of finding some relief before bed, and I have to say, it was pretty much instant.
Full disclosure: I've owned this Neti Pot for a few years now, but I don't recall it ever working this well in the past. But this time, I was able to fall asleep breathing through my nose and without toilet paper crammed up each nostril!
Oh... don't pretend you don't do the same thing!
Pretty much any time I get a runny nose, you can expect to find me walking around the house looking like this:
I only wish it were appropriate to do this in pubic as well because I single-handedly used half a Kleenex box today, and my poor nose looks like Rudolph and feels so raw!
The first thing I did when I got home this afternoon was fill up my Neti Pot for round two.
I don't even have any Kleenex in arm's reach right now, and I've typed this entire post. That may not sound like much, but TRUST ME... this is what #winning feels like!
I better check the package to see how often I can do this because I can definitely see how this can be addicting!
