I hate my sinus issues.
Even worse, I hate what they do to me. If I get on a good sneezing streak, I can easily end up with a cold or sinus infection. I can tell because after about 12 sneezes in a row (not an exaggeration) I’ll feel it in my nose, and then within a few hours its a full blown cold. Ugh. I hate it. Oh, the nasal-y voice I get from this is such a turn on! >please hear my sarcasm here<
The worse part is the congestion. How it makes my nose feel like its jam packed with wet cotton balls, just jammed up in there. Oh, and its not just my nose, its up in that forehead area between the eyes… So much pain! Usually leads to a sinus headache. I hate this crap. For me, not a whole lot works. I’m working with my doctor to really try to find something that can clear me up. Ever since late January, I’ve been congested. Its horrible.
I can’t breathe at night.
I sleep with my mouth open.
So then I wake up with my lips totally chapped and feeling yucky.
And my mouth is usually bone dry.
I’m sure I snore because of this.
Oh, and the nasal strips doesn’t seem to want to work most of the time (but they seem to be helping a bit with my blackheads LOL).
All this congestion lately has stopped me from doing things I want to do. One thing in particular, going to a bridal party/shower. For a family friend. It was a few weeks ago, and it may have been fun. But I hate when I’m so congested I can be mistaken for Ms. Fine from The Nanny! Its even worse when your husband wants to help you feel better by giving you a massage, but when you're laying down with your face downwards your nose gets even worse (didn’t think it was possible!). So then you’re breathing with your mouth open, and you realize that you're drooling on the bed. Yupp. Sexy.
I know I’m not the only one who deals with this.
