Anyway, resident suggested I get a bulbous sucker thingie and try to irrigate my nasal canal that way. So, I bought the nasal sucker thingie and tried it. Didn't work. I was lamenting my sinus problems last night when Toph suggested something called a Neti pot. After some brief research, I thought I would give it a try. So, I stopped by Walgreens on my way home and bought one.
I was sorta hoping to find the kit with the cute little blue pot, but instead I ended up with the kit that looked a lot like a gravy boat. I hurried home with my purchases, let the dog out, and set up shop in the bathroom. I took the little gravy boat, filled it with warm water, emptied a packet of sinus wash mix into the gravy boat and stirred it with the little plastic spoon that came with the kit.
While my sinuses seem to be clean, whatever I have has uprooted and moved further down the respiratory tract. My voice is completely gone. I'm so tired, that when I walk from my room to the kitchen, I feel like I should stop by the living room and take a nap on the couch.
The best part? My house is playing host to a home decor party. A friend is using my house for the shin-ding because her house is being remodeled. From the sounds of it, everyone from work is going to be there. If I don't feel any better, I think I shall just lock myself in my room and let everyone else do whatever they want in the house.
Meanwhile, I'm busy making homemade chicken and noodles. Complete with some homemade dumplings.
