Ahhh back to school. New backpacks, new clothes, new school supplies. New cold germs flying around the classroom. Lean brought home the first cold of the new school year. Fine for her she had it two days, a week and a half later I still have it but now its morphed into a sinus infection.
So I'm in Dr. Grimm's office (remember him? the one who took my caffeine and reason for living away? He's hardcore) and he has his light shoved up my nose (that's what she said, Bee) and he says:
" Your membranes are so swollen I can't even see into your sinuses (I'm thinking he means there are too many boogers to get a good look but was just being nice) Hmmm, have you ever used a Neti Pot?"
WTF, does he think my sinuses got swollen from sniffing some illegal and potentially titillating substance with what must surely be some bong type apparatus? The indignity, the nurse already asked me if I still menstruated and now this??
Oh, it's one of those teapots for your nose. Yeah I saw that on Regis and Kelly and it weren't
pretty let me tell you.
Later I'm at home after showing my daughter and her friends the teapot for my nose, yeah they wanted to try it. I mix up the water and saline in the NasaFlo Neti Pot. I bring it up to my nostril and lean over the sink. It pours in one side and comes out the other. It's not that bad, Dr. Grimm swears by it. But you see, I have a small nose and the water goes in faster than it exits so I'm forced to snort the liquid which spews all over the sink, mirror, and surrounding counter top and is very loud. Kelly made it look easy but I'm sure there's some trick I don't know about. And I have to do it twice a day. help
