I feel like poo

My sinuses (sini?) are acting up again. I started out with a terrible headache this morning and though it's better now, with that and the watery eyes and the runny nose, I decided to come home early tonight. I got some new sinus med without sudafed in it, and am going to try the generic loratadine tabs for a month and see if it helps. This is from Mother's side. I looked for sinus rinse that someone suggested to someone else, but didn't see it at the Hy-Vee. I thought, "Can I stick a Fleet enema up my nose?" and then quickly got sane again.

I don't know why this happens, but it's usually worst when there's a drastic change in weather about to occur. I don't see anything like that in the extended forecast, and the last few days have only been a little on the chilly side (tho, prolly actually about right for this time of year. Maybe I should just detox like some others are doing, get rid of the refinded sugar, the fried foods, the caffeine, and maybe eat a bit more over all. I've lost 15 pounds since starting second shift mostly because P hasn't been feeding my every night, and when left to my own devices, I usually undereat.

Do you have allergies?
I have hay-fever and I know I am getting hit pretty good right now, even with the Loratadine I am taking. Wal-mart usually has generic Loratadine that comes in a 30 day supply.
I hope you are feeling better.

PS - I don't even want to imagine what a nasal enema would look like, although I imagine it would be pretty funny (for others) :D

Sorry you feel like ass. John swears by his nasal rinses, which he just makes up with warm water, baking soda, and sea salt. He uses a bulb "syringe", which is just a bulbular (new word!) baster-looking thing. John got the bulb syringe and the directions from his allergist.

The nasal rinses don't cure anything, but they clear out the dust, pollens, and other allergens. John says it makes a huge difference, even without allergy drugs. The only problem is you really have to do it every day, since it's just a rinsing of the inside of the nose. He just does it as part of his night routine.

I mentioned something about this to P, and she says that she did it once, and got "the worst sinus infection of [her] life." I know, small sample size, so probably she did something wrong or had an existing infection that hit her coincidentally. I may try it sometime.

Try http://allergies.about.com/cs/treatment/a/aa040802a.htm for info. John says you can keep the stuff just in the nose, or you can actually squirt the stuff up into your sinuses. I would recommend against sending the stuff into your sinuses, that is probably what bothered P so much. Just don't squirt so hard.
